Seven league wins in seven games sees Lichfield City FC keep themselves firmly in the title hunt

Lichfield City FC made it seven straight wins in the league to keep themselves firmly in the title race.

Jamie Hawkins’ men saw two goals in the first half earn them victory at Nuneaton Griff and keep themselves two points adrift of leaders Heather St Johns, who won 3-2 at Paget Rangers.

City started brightly with Joe Hartshorne testing the keeper early on, while Drew Aiton also sent an effort off target.

But Nuneaton were also posing a threat, rattling the Lichfield crossbar at the other end.

It was City who opened the scoring though as Hartshorne’s right-footed effort found the bottom corner from the outside the box.

Lichfield were forced into a first half change when Aiton was forced off injured but sub Jordan Evans made his mark with his very first touch as a free-kick nestled into the corner of the net to double his side’s advantage.

Evans almost made it two goals in as many touches as he sent an effort just wide of the upright.

City were beginning to dominate and were somehow denied a third when a defender managed to steer Max Black’s goal-bound effort over the bar.

The second half saw more of the same as Matthew Hardiman’s strike hit the upright before bouncing off the goalkeeper’s head and away from danger.

Black and Griffiths both had chances as City continued to dominate, but there were to be no more goals.
