The Jags took on unbeaten Lichfield City at home on the back of last weeks moral boosting win against Boldmere. Despite the visitors winning 6-0 in their previous outing it was the home side that started the stronger with some pin point passing cutting open City’s defence to force their keeper into some early saves.
Despite the pressure and several more chances it was Lichfield who took the lead against the run of play, an error from a Jags ‘throw in’ led to a lucky bounce for the opportunist City striker who gave home keeper Josh Price no chance!
Despite going behind the Jags continued to press but without any real efforts on goal the half time whistle was blown giving the boys a chance to regroup.
The second half saw much the same with City playing on the break as the Jags failed to penetrate Lichfield’s defence despite having long periods of procession. City doubled their lead early in the half and looked to be cruising to victory but the Jags clawed a goal back from leading scorer Scott Wilding.
City then got a third from a dubious cross that looked to have gone out for a goal kick and despite complaints from on and off the pitch the goal stood, again the Jags rallied with some late pressure with Man of the Match Josh Hill having his best performance of the season but City hung on for the win.
