Hinckley AFC 1 - 0 Pershore Town
A workmanlike performance from Atletico made sure of the points, beating Pershore Town, and whilst not being the prettiest of games, the old adage of 'winning ugly' was remembered at full time.

In an instantly forgettable first half, neither side created many chances, indeed both had just one clear cut chance each. For Pershore, George Cooley tried to lob Sam Arnold, and even though he beat the keeper, the shot was weak and Alex Morris recovered to clear the ball. For AFC, Justin Nisbett fed Tyrone Clark-O'Connell but he was thwarted by Steve Webb with a perfectly timed tackle in the area.

The second half livened up, but still chances were few. Clark-O'Connell squared for Matt Gardner but Andrew Yarnold smothered his effort. Then Morris was on hand again to block a Pershore effort. Hinckley took the lead on the hour when Clark-O'Connell crossed from the left and Justin Nisbett couldn't miss from two yards out, as the ball hit him on the chest and past Yarnold into goal. Arnold was then called into action to tip over from Mark Hands, before Millington put wide for Hinckley. In the final minutes Pershore had a good chance to equalise but Webb saw his shot well saved by Arnold.
