Litlington FC 1 Mott MacDonald 1
AFTER losing their first game of the season, Litlington knew they needed to take something from their first home league fixture of the season against Mott MacDonald.
Manager Ash Hawkins was without a number of first choice players including both centre backs, a centre midfielder and influential striker James Evans but the selection for the game was easy however, as Litlington only had 11 players available.
The first half of the game passed without much incident with both teams struggling to create many chances but the second half was more lively with the visitors starting much the brighter and passing the ball around well.
The deadlock was broken from a set piece with the Mott MacDonald captain scoring with a bullet header that left Ben Bonfield with no chance but this goal stirred the home team into action and for the remained of the second half Litlington dominated proceedings.
They got their reward when a fine passing move ended with Salim Choudhury beating the away keeper with a low drive and they could have won the game had it not been for some poor finishing from James Weir and Liam Butler.

"We were unlucky today," Hawkins said.
"We deserved the three points but it just wasn't to be. I must pay credit to my players though as we had many players playing in unfamiliar positions today and they coped wonderfully."
