Hinckley AFC 4 - 1 Racing Club Warwick
Atletico bounced back from midweek defeat to beat a stubborn Racing Club Warwick, with three late goals breaking down a resolute defence, resulting in a first home win.

James Williams came back into the side at right back moving Mark Williams back into midfield giving a more even balance to the side that started at Bromsgrove. After an even first 30 minutes with not really much clear cut goal mouth action, the nearby lightning providing most of the spark of the game, as the rain eased off it was James Williams who opened the scoring for AFC. On 33 minutes Isaac Cooper played a corner to the far post and Williams headed the ball down and past Caviezel-Cox. The lead was short lived though as Terence Morton equalised for Warwick 5 minutes later capitalising on a loose ball in the Hinckley area as the AFC defence didn't clear properly.

The second half was frustrating for Hinckley, with Sam Agar on his own up front, Warwick were happy to allow Hinckley to attack but smother the final ball and catch AFC on the breakaway. Haydn Whitcombe earned his man of the match award from these break aways making two good saves from Warwick chances and acting almost as a sweeper on the edge of his area thwarting the Racers. The second half introduction of Peter Williams, Javia Roberts and Darious Darkin changed the shape for Hinckley and Agar got a strike partner to help him out, and gave impetuous to AFC for the final 15 minutes. It was sub Peter Williams scoring Hinckley's second on 80 minutes when namesake James Williams overlapped on the right crossed into the area and Peter Williams ran onto the cross powering a bullet header into goal. Agar finally got the goal his efforts deserved almost on time, coming in from the left and curling the ball past Caviezel-Cox from a tight angle. Ryan Seal added the gloss in injury time, when played through by Agar going one on one with the Warwick keeper and slotting the ball underneath him to make it four.
