WES FODERINGHAM (6): Virtual spectator for the entirety of the opening period and not too much busier after the interval either. Neat and tidy with most of what came his way, which wasn’t much, but flapped at one cross before being beaten from the spot by David Ngog.

JAMES TAVERNIER (7): Provided consistent attacking threat down the right and swung in numerous dangerous crosses, despite having a decent challenge at the other end from the lively Davis Keillor-Dunn.

RUSSELL MARTIN (6): Strolled through the game with ease until late on when an Ngog shot came off his arm and he was harshly penalised to give the home side a spot kick. Solid showing otherwise.

Now, Gers fans are being asked to play their part once again. This time, the impact could be even more significant but, like on previous occasions, they must make the most of the chance that has presented itself.

DAVID BATES (6): Was the man tasked with winning the first ball, and got his head to his fair share of them to lighten the workload of his central defensive partner Martin considerably. could have given away a penalty with a handball, but competent display all in all.

DECLAN JOHN (6): Burst forward at every opportunity during the first half, but was rather tempered in the second period and didn’t provide quite as consistent an outlet.

JASON HOLT (7): The midfielder was named skipper for the second time in a row, and just as in the Aberdeen match on Wednesday night, he rose to the task. Decent in possession, but most impressive aspect of his game was his constant cajoling and organising of teammates.

SEAN GOSS (7): Impressive in the first half as he got on the ball and looked to make things happen, showcasing his fine passing range and finding time on the ball. County managed to subdue him a little in the second half, and he was eventually replaced by Docherty.

DANIEL CANDEIAS (7): Had the beating of Kenny Van Der Weg all day long, and powerful effort brought opening goal with a little help from County keeper McCarey. Wasted a couple of late opportunities to play in teammates to seal the points, but good

JOSH WINDASS (6): Great chance at the start of the second half as he showed skill to cut inside and force McCarey into a great save, but it was an all too fleeting glimpse of his ability.

JAMIE MURPHY (8): Bright and lively, and came close to opening his Rangers account on a couple of occasions. Didn’t mind doing the dirty work the other way too, putting in a tireless shift.

ALFREDO MORELOS (6): Dragged a decent opportunity wide in the first half, but a quiet afternoon for the Colombian before being replaced by Cummings towards the end.


GREG DOCHERTY (4): Former Hamilton man came on for his debut with 20 minutes to go and tried hard to get involved.

JASON CUMMINGS (6): Came on late and wasted no time making his mark by picking the ball up in midfield, running towards the area and getting a shot away that deflected into the bottom corner to give him his first Rangers goal and seal the victory.

ANDY HALLIDAY (1): On for last few minutes but no time to get on the ball.
