Deeping Rangers boss Tuncay Korkmaz was delighted to see how his plans paid off in style.

Tactical changes proved vital in Saturday’s home victory over Thurnby Nirvana – but the half-time message was simply to go out and score more goals!

Korkmaz said: “Offensively we know Thurnby are a very good side and history shows they have done well.

“Our ambition and aspiration was to ask them questions defensively.

“We got on the front foot and created three or four decent chances but only took one before they got into the game.

“They showed some quality and deserved their goal.

“Towards the end of the first half it was well balanced but then Charlie Coulson scored a cracker to put us back ahead.

“The message for the second half was fairly clear – to score more goals.

“We changed the formation to make the pitch as big as we could to exploit their weaknessess and play to our own strengths.

“We knew getting out wide would test them defensively and in the end we could have scored seven goals.

“I felt we also needed a bit more grit in midfield with Dan Flack’s experience.

“We’ve got young players who have responded well at this level.

“A couple of lads were nursing injuries but they got through 90 minutes.”

Skipper David Burton-Jones is available for Tuesday night’s trip to Sleaford Town after serving a one-match suspension for five bookings.
