Eight goals in two games as Lichfield City FC see off Coventry Copsewood

Lichfield City FC made it eight goals in two games as they saw off Coventry Copsewood.

The Staffordshire Vase finalists repeated their trick of the week before against Abbey Hulton to record a 4-1 triumph.

An own goal after ten minutes got Lichfield on their way and they came close to a second soon after.

The lead was doubled on 19 minutes when prolific striker Tony Clarke found the net.

Only a good save denied City a third, but Coventry showed they weren’t merely making up the numbers by pulling a goal back midway through the half.

An end to end opening period saw Copsewood go close to an equaliser before Joe Haines stole in at the back post to make it 3-1 to Lichfield.

It was nearly four before the break as Clarke saw an effort well saved.

Lichfield were glad of their two goal cushion in the second period Coventry were awarded a penalty which also saw Lewis Bourne shown a red card. But keeper Sheridan Martinez pulled off a smart save to keep the score at 3-1.

Despite being reduced to ten men City still looked threatening. Hurren saw an effort scrambled away before Clarke was also denied.

The fourth Lichfield goal came as Michael Taylor wrapped up a fine performance to secure a 4-1 win.
