Lichfield City Spires 2 v 2Wyrley Juniors United

 This wasn’t a classic encounter between two equally matched teams, most of the play in the first half was down the Wyrley right, but in the first half Wyrley lacked that little bit of quality to prise open the Lichfield defence. However Louie Parish made some strong runs going forward, but good Lichfield defending kept away the threat of any goalbound efforts. Parish was however tugged back in the box to give Wyrley a penalty, and up stepped Wyrley man of the match Elliot Crook to smash the ball home to put Wyrley one up. The second half was again well contested, there was some better passing and movement from Wyrley, but without any penetration, mainly down to some good work at the back from Lichfield. Like previous United games it was the last 10 minutes of the match that produced the drama, Tom Rowlands was unlucky to head past his keeper to put Lichfield level and then a few minutes later Lichfield took the lead finishing well from the edge of the box. With a minute left on the clock and Wyrley working desperately to gain a final opportunity on goal, the ball was only half cleared by Lichfield to the well positioned Rowlands whose shot from 25 yards out deceived the keeper to give United a share of the points.
