Hinckley AFC 2 - 3 Lichfield City
3 first half goals were enough for table top Lichfield to hold on to victory, as Atletico blew their chance of a comeback with Kieran Harrison second half red card.

It all started so well for AFC when Jordan Wilson scored in the first minute for Hinckley when Louis Hamilton lifted the ball over the back line for Wilson to run on to in the right channel and finish past Matt Cotton. The lead only lasted a quarter of an hour as a neat move involving Max Black and James Taylor on the edge of the AFC area released Taylor to slip the ball past an out rushing Jacob Wood. On the half hour Hinckley were guilty of not playing to the whistle when a through ball on the right reached Taylor in what seemed an offside position, but with no refs whistle the AFC back line were static leaving Taylor in one on one and finishing comfortably to give City the lead. Again the AFC defence didn't react waiting for a ref whistle right on the stroke of half time as the ball came down the left wing, clearly crossing over the touchline, but with no linesman's flag the ball was crossed to Jordan Evans, who's inital shot could only be parried by Wood and Joe Hartshone reacted quickest tapping in the rebound.

Hinckley came out with more purpose in the second half Jason Lee just heading a free kick wide, and then on the hour a corner from the left was played central where Joe McLaughlin rose highest to head into goal to reduce the deficit. With AFC beginning to threaten, Kieran Harrison had a rush of blood to the head and in a 50/50 challenge with Harry Harris went over the knee and was shown a straight red card. With AFC restricted on numbers Lichfield's strong back line saw out the remainder of the game comfortably, and held out for the victory keeping them top of the league table.
