The game was levelled shortly after when Oliver Hutsby was brought down in the area and dusted himself home to power the penalty past Ryan Oliver.

Wolves took the lead seven minutes after the break when Adam Hawkhead struck Alex Lockwood’s pass first time to send the ball looping over Oliver.

George Grashion was denied a certain headed goal only to see it cleared off the line by a scrambling Rangers defender.

A rash challenge from Luke Johnson handed Rangers a penalty which Brad Pye struck home to level the scores.

Hawkhead shaved the top of the bar from a corner and Lockwood saw a long range effort saved as Wolves pushed on.

Six minutes from time they went back in front when Eliot Tyler curled home at the near post straight from a corner.

Just when it seemed as though Rangers’ hunt for a point would go on, they were handed a glorious chance to level the match.

Kieran Rowles clipped his man to give away the spot kick and Luke stepped up to slot home and get his side off the mark for the season.
