IT was a disappointing morning for an under-strength Knebworth team that made several changes from the win last week.

Hitchin took an early lead and doubled the advantage after a rare goalkeeping error from Jones.

The home side rarely threatened but after some tough talking at the break they came out revitalised and made a fist of it for 10 minutes or so as they began to compete better all over the pitch.

Neither side had too many chances but the visitors made the game safe when a long-range free-kick somehow managed to beat Jones for a third and final goal.

Well played to Hitchin, they worked hard for their victory and deserved to leave with all three points and their number 15, Adam, produced another impressive performance.
