LEDBURY Town desperately needed three points to keep their title hopes alive and that is exactly what they did on Saturday as they beat rivals Hereford Pegasus Reserves 2-0. 

Lewis Williams kept up his recent good form with a goal and an assist in the win, with both goals coming after the break.

Town man-of-the-match Williams broke the deadlock eight minutes into the second period through a superb assist from strike partner Josh Burns, before recent new signing Dean Lee doubled the lead eight minutes later, this time with the assistance of Williams.

Having seen their lead at the top of the table cut to just a single point following the Easter Monday defeat to Clee Hill, the win kept them top, just above title rivals Sporting Club Inkberrow. 

But since then, Inkberrow won their mid-week game in hand on Tuesday evening, beating Gloucester City U21s 4-0 to overtake Ledbury and hit top spot with four games to play.

Two points separate the pair for now but this weekend will see them go head-to-head on the pitch which looks set to be the title decider.

With only three games left after this weekend, Saturday's clash in Inkberrow becomes a must-win for Ledbury if they want to keep the title race in their own hands as a draw would mean that Inkberrow would need to lose one of their remaining three and defeat on Saturday would almost certainly finish Ledbury's title hopes.

Elsewhere last weekend, the Ledbury Town Reserves were in league action as they beat Kington Town Reserves 3-0. 

The goals came courtesy of Tom Skittery, Kieran Loveridge and promising youngster Tom Goodwin, with Callum Blackmore-Davey being named man of the match for the visitors for a great shift in defence. 

David Butcher and Harry Powell’s on-form squad can now boast scoring ten goals in just two games, following the stunning 7-0 victory over Bartestree under the floodlights of an extremely muddy New Street two Wednesdays previously.
