Brindley latched onto Daniel Parsons’ ball to secure all three points and was booked as he removed his shirt in a celebration which told how United viewed the victory against a very good Rangers outfit.

The home side took the lead after 14 minutes when Martin Griggs shot in from the edge of the area.

Within two minutes Griggs’ long ball found Wylie, who saw his shot parried. The ball fell to Mason-Williams who saw his shot blocked on the line by United defender Steve Garbutt.

In the 24th minute United skipper Simon King saw red for a tackle on Rangers’ Joel Read.

Winslow were level on 39 minutes when Sean Coles converted from the penalty spot after an incident which saw former United player Kevin Mealor sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity.

The visitors started the second half strongly and went ahead just seven minutes after the restart when Coles grabbed his 31st goal of the campaign firing home from Daniel Delderfield’s pass.

Brindley came off the bench to replace Mitch Collins in the 67th minute.

Former United striker Jason Castello levelled the game up twelve minutes from time as the substitute headed in Griggs’ free kick at the far post.
