A dominant Rangers comfortably negotiated their way through to the fourth round of the Scottish Youth Cup, with a 4-1 against Queens Park beneath the Murray Park floodlights. The Gers had complete control during the first half and their two goals didn't really didn't do justice to their performance.
Despite their possession, this creative young Rangers side were kept to striking from in and around the edge of the penalty area by the Queens Park defence, though this was enough for Ryan Sinnamon and Tom Walsh to find the back of the net.
The Spiders on the other hand weren’t even able to do that. They looked uneasy on the ball and their passing was slack, with moves breaking down as quickly as they began.
The second half was a different story for the visitors, their passing was crisper and there was a steely determination to their play that put the Rangers defence under some pressure, and managing to sneak a goal late on from Liam Brown. Despite this, Rangers always looked capable of adding to their first half tally and did so, when Josh Jeffries netted a wonderful solo effort and Jamie Barjonas helped one over the line to put the icing on the cake.
Liam Burt had a couple of early attempts on the Queens Park goal that tested keeper Craig Melrose. Scott Roberts then had a shot go into the side netting and Liam Burt’s next effort was again saved by Melrose.
Then on twenty five minutes, Sinnamon struck the ball into the Spiders penalty area looking for Roberts. The ball was headed back out, and Sinnamon sent the ball sailing into the net from twenty five yards.
Then within a few minutes of breaking the deadlock, Rangers had doubled their advantage. Jordan Thompson passed inside for Walsh to take a touch and unleash from twenty yards and into the net.
