Pershore Town 1 - 2 Hinckley AFC
Second half goals from James Williams and Sam Agar earned Atletico the points in a hard battle against Pershore, who would feel they had done enough to have got a draw.

With Pershore battling relegation, they obviously set themselves out very early not to lose this game, and were very disciplined in their two banks of 5 defenders and 4 midfielders when not in possession. Even though Hinckley had a lot of possession the forward line of Javia Roberts and Sean Williams struggled to see any of the ball and few chances were created. Pershore on the other hand had little possession but were direct when they did have the ball and created more chances, the best of which saw Reece Jacobs blast over when well placed in the area.

Haydn Whitcombe was in action early in the second half too as he saved from Jamie Clarke when one-on-one. On the hour mark, Jacobs made up for his first half miss as he gave Pershore a deserved lead, running down the right channel and slotting under Whitcombe as he came out of goal. This stung Hinckley into action and were level minutes later as Lee Butler whipped in a free kick from the left and James Williams headed back across goal into the net. With the introduction of substitutes Sam Agar and Paul Sullivan, Hinckley finally began to look like the team third in the league table and with 15 minutes remaining AFC scored the winning goal. Sullivan did well on the right holding off his marker and played in Darious Darkin who took the ball to the byline and crossed for Agar to power a 'bullet header' past Edwards in the Pershore goal.
