Midlands Regional Alliance
Ambergate FC 1
Mackworth St Francis 3
Ambergate’s faint promotion hopes where extinguished by a strong Mackworth team still in the title race.
A bright start by Ambergate saw them go into the lead, an exquisite through-ball from Shaun Welch well finished by Wayne Randall.
Mackworth grew into the game though and equalised before half-time as a Craig Tipton hand-ball gifted the visitors a penalty which was coolly despatched.
A reasonably even first-half ended 1-1.
The second half began in the same vein as the sides traded chances.
Stevenson had the best of Ambergate’s, but midway through the half a quick breakaway saw Mackworth grab the lead.
And not long after they added a third goal to seal victory wich a powerful header.
It was probably a deserved victory for a well-organised team and they look set for promotion.
Ambergate have three games left and can still finish in a respectable fourth place in the table.
