A STRONG blustery wind completely destroyed this Nationwide Conference North fixture as a spectacle, with neither side able to come to terms with the prevailing conditions.
The Motormen had the wind behind them in the opening 45 minutes and spent it encamped in the Rangers half, but apart from an early Spellman piledriver that went beyond the far post, they struggled.
Efforts by Darren Wright, Anthony Wright and Griffiths were all off-target.
In the second half Stafford too found it extremely difficult to penetrate and home keeper Dittmer was called upon to make one save from McAughtrie.
Indeed, they almost snatched all three points, when defender McNulty powered in an 82nd-minute header from a left-sided Lawton corner, but Rangers managed to wrestle the ball off the line at the third attempt.
The Motormen have now taken 10 points from their last four league games and tomorrow night host Run-corn FC Halton (7.45pm), postponed from Boxing Day.
VAUXHALL: Dittmer, Woodyatt, Spellman, Griffiths (McDermott 76), McNulty, Brazier, D Wright, Lawton, A Wright, Olsen, Noone (Parry 60). Subs: Nes-bitt, Duffy, Macauley.
