Tamworth 4-1 Hednesford Town

Despite taking an early lead Hednesford Town would end up on the wrong end of a score that somewhat flattered the home side Tamworth in the end.

After a bright start, which saw George Carline and James Mutton both go close, it would be the Pitmen that would open the scoring in the ninth minute as Jazz Luckie pounced to fire home from five yards out.

Although Hednesford looked fairly comfortable the home side would bring themselves level in the 27th minute when Greg Mills fired in a low driven effort from the edge of the box, with the ball finding the back of the net via the post.

The Pitmen made four changes at the break but it was on one of the players from the start who came closest to putting Liam McDonald’s side back in front as Ashley Sammons saw his effort strike the crossbar in the 58th minute.

This would prove crucial as Tamworth edged ahead in the 66th minute when Jed Davies scored from ten yards out and it was 3-1 with 13 minutes to go as Jack Lane fired home from just inside the box.

Then with virtually the last kick of the game Tamworth’s player-manager Andy Morrell added a fourth.

The Pitmen will now turn attentions towards Monday night’s home fixture against Mansfield Town at Keys Park.
