JAMIE Insall’s injurytime penalty was saved as Littleton lost 4-3 at home to Pelsall Villa in the St Mary’s Hospice Midland Combination Premier Division.
Littleton led on two minutes when Chris Cornes’ free-kick was played short to Insall who netted from close range.
Villa levelled as an attacker was fouled in the box and keeper Dean Smith saved the spot-kick but could not stop the follow-up.
Littleton regained the lead on nine minutes through Stuart Hall’s close-range finish but a defensive mistake gifted a second equaliser midway through the first-half.
Pelsall went ahead, but Littleton levelled five minutes before half-time through Kyonn Evans’ fine solo effort.
Littleton substituted their keeper but replacement Jo Gandy beaten by a penalty eight minutes into the second period.
However, Gandy made amends by saving a penalty, controversially awarded for handball.
Pelsall had a player sent off for two yellow cards and Insall’s late spot-kick was saved for Littleton who visit Southam United in the Les James Challenge Cup on Saturday (3pm).
