Blue Square Bet North: Hinckley 2-3 Worcester City

Worcester City

Simon Brown's second-half penalty completed a fine Worcester City comeback after they went two goals down inside the opening 10 minutes.

Tom Byrne gave the Knitters the lead before Danny Newton made it 2-0.

Lee Smith quickly reduced arrears for City before Kevin O'Connor made it 2-2 with a 20-yard drive on 42 minutes.

Hinckley's Richard Laverty was sent off for bringing down Danny Carey-Bertram in the area and Brown kept his cool to score City's winner from the spot.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Worcester manager Carl Heeley told BBC Hereford & Worcester:

Heeley hails Worcester character

"We were down to the bare bones this evening but full credit to the boys.

"We can be overly critical about conceding two poor goals and giving them an opportunity for a third.

"But they have turned it around and we gradually got better to the point where I thought we bossed the second half without too much danger."
