Rangers come from behind against United 27/11/04
Manning Rangers moved up five places on the PSL log after they scored a gutsy come-from-behind victory against SuperSport United at the Loftus Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Matsatsantsa enjoyed the better of the first half, and opened the scoring in as early as the 6th minute, but the Mighty Maulers came back strongly in the second stanza and scored twice to win the game.

The very first chance of the match fell to Rangers' Thabiso Hlalele, whose shot was well dealt with by Calvin Marlin.

United then took the lead when Peter Khobane floated in a free-kick onto the head of Daniel Matsau, who made no mistake.

Eight minutes later Tseweu Mokoro also had a chance to score with his head, but this time Rangers keeper Chad Harpur was up to the task.

The visitors came storming back in the second half and in the 53rd minute Marlin did well to save from Linos Chalwe.

A minute later the Durban outfit found an equaliser when Alton Meiring banged in a free-kick from 25-yards out.

In the 60th minute Frank Makua could have put the Pretoria side back in the lead, but his effort was saved by Harpur.

Then, with the game in its final moments, Rangers were awarded a corner, which Hlalele took and picked out Saul Malapo, who headed home the winner.

This was the home side's first defeat of the season, and only Rangers' third win.
