The perfect time for Rangers to forget Vase

Have your say

The visit of Boston Town this evening is the perfect time for Deeping Rangers to put Saturday’s FA Vase disappointment behind them according to boss Tuncay Korkmaz.

An 89th minute winner handed Deeping an early exit from the Vase on Saturday, and Korkmaz is glad his side is back in action so soon afterwards.

Korkmaz said: “It’s nice to have a game quickly after a disappointment like that.

“If you have a bad weekend the best cure it to get back quickly with a win.”

Saturday’s defeat to Norton United was harsh on Rangers who hit the visitors’ woodwork three times at Outgang Road. Matt Heron, Ash Stevens and Harry Deane were all denied by the frame of the goal.

Norton, whose game plan was to counter, caught Rangers out with a killer strike from Daniel Brown that left little time for Korkmaz’ side to regroup.

“It was very disappointing as a club and a manager,” said Korkmaz. “You hope for a home tie and decent draw; and we had that. But it was one of those days.

“They defended in numbers but we still created enough chances to go in front.”

The Rangers boss, who still targets a top four place in the United Counties League Premier Division, added: “It’s going to be tough but it’s a reasonable challenge. We have done better against the stronger teams.”

He has also signed up striker Phil Stebbing, who was previously with him at the Daniels before suffering injury problems.

Tonight’s match at Outgang Road kicks off at 7.45pm. Rangers travel to bottom side Irchester United on Saturday.
