LEADERS Worcester City under 21s hit back three times before scoring a final-minute winner in a 4-3 victory at Sutton Coldfield Town.

Sutton lobbed home the opener within a minute in the Total Motion Midland League Under 21 West Division clash.

City found their rhythm and after a couple of chances went begging Liam Lockett neatly slotted home the equaliser on 25 minutes.

But Worcester gave the ball away at the back and were punished by a good finish on 40 minutes.

Sutton’s pressing game caused City problems and the long ball unsettled the visitors.

Worcester played slicker football through midfield in the second period and first team joint-manager Lee Hughes came on up front to add his experience.

Lockett produced another equaliser on 54 minutes after good work from Josh Willis.

But City were caught by a sucker punch on 69 minutes when another long ball was bundled home.

Hughes brought City level again by heading in a Lockett corner.

With virtually the last kick of the game, City’s tenacity paid off when a ball into the box dropped to Tom Allen who kept his nerve to smash in the winner from the corner of the six-yard box.

City's next league game is at home to Boldmere St Michaels on Saturday, January 13.

The fourth-placed first team return to action at Shrewsbury-based Haughmond in the Midland League Premier Division on Saturday (3pm).
