When Andy Townsend provoked a response from Alan McDonald!

Rangers started off their 1990/91 campaign with a 1-1 draw at Forest, which was followed by a 0-1 home defeat against Wimbledon and next up were Chelsea.

The R’s took an early lead following David Lee’s handball in the box. Roy Wegerle stepped up and made no mistake from the penalty spot.

Later, the visitors were also awarded a penalty after Andy Townsend had gone down in the box. Kerry Dixon’s spot-kick ended up somewhere in the Upper Loft!

Andy Townsend ended up grounded in very different circumstances after provoking Alan McDonald!

The R’s won 1-0 and the line-up that day was: Roberts, Bardsley, Sansom, Parker, McDonald, Channing, Wilkins, Wilson, Falco, Wegerle, Sinton.
