Rangers boss Leon Sewell was delighted with his side’s attacking play:
“First of all, big thanks to Pocklington for swapping the venue given their home pitch wasn’t fit for purpose. Much appreciated for them switching the venue and getting the game played and that’s testament to them.
Big testament to the boys in the Hall Road kit today. I thought we played exceptionally well in the first 45 minutes.
No disrespect to Pocklington. I think they struggled to adapt to the way we played the game and how we played on the front foot.
0-3 at half-time and three really good goals. I thought our front four were fantastic and the midfield was superb and the boys at the back were resolute once again.
Obviously disappointed to concede a couple of goals. However, two games played and five goals scored is really positive and six points on the board.
The boys adapted well to the temperatures today. It was absolutely baking hot.
Another three points on the board. Really happy and really positive with two wins from two. Still early days and not getting carried away.”
