PERSHORE Town let slip a two-goal lead in a 3-2 defeat at home to Hinckley AFC on Saturday.

Town took the lead midway through the first half when Shaun Griffiths headed home from a corner.

Wind and rain made conditions difficult but experienced frontman Charlie Anagho-Ntamark made light work of a difficult opportunity, firing home on the turn to double Pershore’s lead 10 minutes before interval.

The turning point came just before the interval when Josh Burniston got one back for Hinckley, drilling past keeper Toby Wilcox from 25 yards having been teed up by Luke Richards.

The visitors changed shape at half-time with defender Richard Munday introduced and he got the equalising goal 20 minutes into the second half, nodding back across goal from Burniston’s centre.

With the wind in their sails, it did not take Hinckley long to complete the comeback with Burniston adding his second after good work from Steve Hart on the right.
