Tividale 1-3 Lichfield City

Much Better

After the horrible midweek showing. It was felt all around the club that the lad’s owed the management, volunteers and supporters a performance. Unfortunately it was against the Lichfield City, leagues top scorers and tightest defence. And to give them even more incentive, they had a chance to go top of the league.

Manager Stuart Hale made just the three changes from the midweek loss. Lewis Wright, Callum Gillies and Craig Gregg replacing Kamol Campbell, tarryl Davis and Nashawn Blake.

The three lads that were put on the bench could feel that they were unfortunate, as any of Tuesday’s starting eleven could have been replaced.

Callum Griffin had the first chance of note in the game as his strike from distance cleared the bar.

But Tividale upset the odds when a long ball over the top saw Taylor-Boyce beat City keeper James Beeson to the bounce to find the net

Lichfield went close to levelling the scores when Joe Haines met an Edwards cross but the ball came back off the post.

The equaliser eventually came when McMenemey rose highest to head home an Edwards corner.

The leveller gave City the impetus to push on with Smith seeing a shot blocked and Haines forcing a save from home stopper Louis Connor.

Half Time:-Tividale 1-1 Lichfield City

It took just ten minutes of the second half for Lichfield to get in front as a neat move saw Brown’s shot saved, but Edwards was on hand to tuck away the rebound.

Tividale keeper Connor produced a fine save to tip over Demitri Brown’s header, but he could do nothing when McMenemey again got his head to a corner and nodded home to make it 3-1.

Griffin was next to test the home stopper before Lomas sent a low shot wide from distance.

Lichfield almost added a fourth late on when Haines raced on to an Edwards pass and dinked the ball over the keeper, but a defender was on hand to clear off the line.
