LITTLETON suffered another defeat going down 4-0 at home to Racing Club Warwick in Midland League Division One.

Warwick are probably the best side seen at Littleton this season ­— a fact reflected in their league position which if they win their games in hand would see them top.

Littleton fielded a much-changed side due to injuries and unavailability but gave a good account of themselves in the opening exchanges.

A lob from Luke Rowlands hit the bar after eight minutes but soon after he was forced to come off due to injury.

Warwick started to dominate and were unlucky when a piledriver from Trea Beatie smashed against the post from 15 yards.

But Littleton fought doggedly and got to half-time at 0-0.

As has happened so many times this season, Littleton give goals away in batches and within 12 minutes of the second half found themselves 3-0 down.

It all started with a hotly-disputed penalty on 49 minutes which Ben Mackey converted with power.

Then on 55 minutes a goal following a corner was quickly followed by the third.

This burst meant the game was over but Littleton battled on although a second penalty again converted by Mackey completed the scoring.

Bottom-of-the-table Littleton, who have won just one league game all season, are at home again on Saturday to 15th-placed Stapenhill (3pm).
