Littleton shoot up to top of the table

First published in Sport

LITTLETON moved to the top of Midland Football League Division One with a 1-0 win over Hinckley.

They recorded a fifth consecutive victory after beating their well-supported visitors with a goal from Will Gayton.

Littleton defended against a stiff wind in the first-half and were put under severe pressure.

But a composed performance by keeper Haydn Whitcombe and resolute defending kept the scores level at half-time.

Littleton could have bagged two goals in the first five minutes of the second period when both Gayton and Tom Allard headed over the bar.

Hinckley had a golden chance on 65 minutes but their striker fired over from close range.

A minute later, Gayton scored the only goal with a powerful shot after cutting inside from the left.

Littleton saw a penalty saved after Jamie Clarke was fouled on 75 minutes but held on for the three points.

They visit Atherstone Town on Saturday (3pm).
