Racing Club Warwick 1 - 3 Hinckley AFC
Atletico set a new club record when registering a ninth consecutive victory, beating Racing Club Warwick, despite losing goal keeper Jack Hartopp to a red card at the start of the second half.

Hinckley were ahead as early as the second minute, when Sean Williams won a free kick on the right, then Luke Richards crossed the set piece to the far post where Williams himself rose the highest to head into the goal. This was followed by Javia Roberts forcing the Warwick keeper into a good save, before Racing Club had a good spell of their own. Callum Ingram was unlucky to see his long range effort cannon off the crossbar and Hartopp was at full stretch to stop Elroy Bennett. Just as Warwick looked like getting back into the game, after the half hour, AFC hit them on the break and scored a second, Kristian Ramsey-Dickson bringing the ball out of defence, down the right wing and then crossing to Roberts central in the area to shoot goalwards from 12 yards out.

Atletico's comfort zone was well and truly smashed minutes into the second half when Hartopp was dismissed for a professional foul, and with no keeper on the subs bench Richards took over the goalkeeping responsibilities. The AFC striker was unable to prevent Jamie Smith scoring from the penalty spot, but as Warwick piled on the pressure in search of an equaliser, he was instrumental in keeping them out. With 20 minutes remaining Smith had a glorious opportunity to level the scores but Richards parried his shot, only to see Terry Morton follow up, and Richards again denied Morton twice as he tried to force the ball into goal. Warwick would rue that miss as minutes later AFC broke their defencive shackles and sub Elikem Amenku saw his shot from the edge of the area parried, however only as far as Jordan Nadat who tapped into the empty net giving Hinckley a 3-1 lead. Despite Warwick pouring forward trying to get something out of the game in the last 5 minutes the 10 men held out till the final whistle to set the new club record.
