Hinckley AFC 1 - 2 Cadbury Athletic
Jordan Wilson opened the scoring with a goal on debut for Atletico, and despite a penalty save from Adam Harrison, Cadbury hit back to win in the second half.

Midweek signing from Loughborough Dynamo Jordan Wilson made his debut in the starting eleven and it looked to be going really well for him and AFC in the first 25 minutes. A through ball to Grant Ryan on the quarter hour saw him with his back to goal, but passed to Wilson on the overlap in the left channel, who took the ball into the area, past a defender then finished from a tight angle. Sam Belcher then forced Stuart Palmer to parry the ball from the edge of the area, and a Ryan flicked header fell just over the bar from a corner before AFC were hit with a break away goal on 24 minutes. A long clearance found Odane Barnes, and as the ball dropped nicely for him saw Adam Harrison coming out of goal, and neatly chipped it over the AFC keeper into goal. Barnes should have doubled his goal tally on the half hour but for some devine justice, so to speak. A cross from the right side was defended by Martin Hutchcox, but as he mis-timed his header the ball hit his trailing arm by his side and the ref awarded a very soft penalty. Barnes stepped up to take responsibility but for the second time this season Harrison dived the right way and saved the penalty, leaving the scores level at half time.

The game turned on the hour when a static Hinckley defence were caught out by John Baker, and the Cadbury forward slotted past Harrison to give them the lead. Nkosi Mzungwana was brought on and this made an immediate impact on Hinckley's attacking play, resulting in a last 20 minutes of AFC attacking and Cadbury protecting their lead. Belcher saw his goal bound shot saved by Parsons, then Wilson running into the area with just Parsons to beat was bundled over before he could shoot, however the referee deemed it a fair challenge. Belcher then saw another shot blocked on the line by a defender before Mzungwana attempted a curling effort from the edge of the area that just drifted wide of the post. With the game almost done, a goal mouth scramble saw the ball half cleared to Tom Maddison on the right edge of the area, who drilled goalwards past the melee of players and with Parson unsighted the ball just clipped the outside of the post and away. Leaving Cadbury with a hard fought away win and AFC with their second league defeat of the season.
