Mitchell scores as Littleton defeated
7:30am Thursday 15th August 2013 in Sport
LAST season’s runners-up Littleton were brought back down to earth by a 4-1 opening home defeat to Stafford Town in the Midland Combination Premier Division.
Starting against the same opponents as in 2012-13, the Vale side could not repeat their 1-0 victory from that occasion.
The opening exchanges were even before the big, strong visitors took the lead on 10 minutes following a scramble.
Littleton equalised on 32 minutes when a corner was punched out by the keeper to Matt Mitchell who headed home.
The hosts enjoyed their best spell but disaster struck just before half-time when they gave away a sloppy second goal. Worse followed after the break as a defender handled and the penalty was converted with ease.
Littleton, who visit Racing Club Warwick on Saturday (3pm) and host Studley next Wednesday (7.45pm), pushed men forward but were punished in the last minute by a breakaway goal.
