FOOTBALL - Sporting Club Inkberrow ease to victory against Stonehouse

Redditch Editorial 6th Feb, 2024 Updated: 6th Feb, 2024   0

SPORTING Club Inkberrow tightened their grip on a play-off place with a convincing 4-1 victory against Stonehouse Town.

Goals from Joel Steer, Jay Higgins-Pugsley, Gregor Guy and Luke Allcock sealed a comfortable win for Sporting at the Inkberrow Recreation Ground.

The result means Inkberrow sit fifth in the Hellenic League Division One table, six points clear of the chasing pack in a race for a place in the play-offs.

Sporting broke the deadlock courtesy of Steer’s early strike as the Inkberrow man continued his fine form in front of goal before two one-on-one chances went begging.

And the home side doubled their lead before the break when Higgins-Pugsley slotted the ball past the Stonehouse goalkeeper from eight-yards out after good work from Nathan Benson and Max-Emilios Angelides.

However, Stonehouse reduced the deficit in the second period when Nicholas Humphreys scored from the penalty spot despite strong Inkberrow protests.

Sporting restored their two-goal advantage on 65 minutes as Guy’s deep corner evaded everybody in the box and went directly into the net.

And substitute Allcock completed the scoring five minutes from time after stealing the ball from the Stonehouse keeper and finishing from close range.

Inkberrow are next in action away at Tytherington Rocks on Tuesday, February 13 with kick-off at 7.45pm at Hardwicke Playing Field.
