LITTLETON will take a 1-0 lead into the second leg of their Worcester Royal Infirmary Cup semi-final – but boss John Edwards reckons it should have been more.

Jordan Jones notched the winner against Bewdley Town at Five Acres last night, converting at the far post after top scorer Dan Carter had turned provider by spinning his marker to fizz in the assist from the right.

“We deserved to win but might have had a bigger lead,” said Edwards. “We created a lot of chances across the 90 minutes.

“Michael Wright shot straight at the keeper after two minutes, if it had gone either side of him we would have scored.

“Bewdley had a good 20-minute spell before half-time but we kicked on after that and controlled the game, we just could not add to Jordan’s goal.”

A date for the second leg at Ribbesford Meadow has yet to be set with Littleton also pursuing glory in the Midland Football League Cup.

In the meantime, Edwards and his players switch focus to Division One action and a derby date at Pershore Town tomorrow (3pm).

Great Britain Deaf international Jamie Clarke is a doubt for a match the visiting manager expects to be a tight affair.

“There are lads on both teams that have played for the other club which always adds spice,” Edwards added.

“It is a healthy rivalry and Pershore have had some decent results in recent months. They have nothing to lose and will be going for it.”
