Goal deep into injury time sees Lichfield City FC beaten by Littleton

Lichfield City FC suffered late heartbreak as they went down 2-1 to Littleton.

Nick Harris sent an early chance over the top as Dave Langston’s men started brightly on the road, before Joe Haines also sent an effort wide of the target.

City were having the better of the opening exchanges as Richard Deavall’s cross was sent wide by Josh Haston, but Littleton began to find their feet as the first half wore on with a couple of efforts off target.

Lichfield started the second half as they had done the first with Joe Clarke spurning an early half-chance after Haines’ delivery.

But the flow of the game was interrupted as a number of injuries meant plenty of time would be added at the end of the 90 – a factor that was to prove crucial.

The deadlock was eventually broken as City deservedly got their noses in front after Haines’ cross was blocked but the ball fell to Haston who lashed home from eight yards out.

But Littleton were level when Harris was penalised for a push in the box and the resulting spot kick was smashed down the centre of the goal.

The game looked to be heading for a draw until the killer blow from Littleton came six minutes into time added to steal all three points.
