A solid half for both teams, with many goal scoring opportunities wasted for either side. The Rangers held the majority of the ball, having some quality build up play and converting three chances. Clarence on the other hand had a number of chances played straight to Whatman, with the home side still in this contest heading into half time. The second half will be an interesting one, and will need to be a real show of character from Clarence to come back. With Thannhauser and the Lanau-Atkinson brothers firing it will be a tough but do-able ask.

A big game here at Wentworth Park with both teams looking to get their seasons back on track. For Clarence, a win today would see them draw equal on points with the Lions in 7th spot, whilst a win is vital for the Rangers as they look to keep touch with Olympia. Both teams will believe they can win this game, with the Rangers looking to repeat the efforts that saw them win 7-1 the last time these sides met.
