Hitchin Town produced a sensational comeback to grab all three points at home to Coalville Town in the Southern League.

Top Field was feeling a gloomy place at half-time with the Canaries trailing 3-1.

Jack Snelus had cancelled out a Terrell Pennant goal on 37 minutes but Thomas McGlinchey and Luke Shaw had popped up in the last five minutes to give the Leicestershire side a handsome buffer.

But the second half belonged to the hosts and to Finley Wilkinson.

He got the ball rolling with a fine finish on 56 minutes and a dribble forward and low shot into the corner drew then level with 13 minutes remaining.

The winner arrived with four minutes to go, shooting Hitchin up to sixth in the Premier Division Central table and well in the mix for a play-off place behind runaway champions-elect Mickleover.

Stotfold also found themselves trailing by two at half-time in their Division One Central clash at home to North Leigh.

The visitors, who finished the day second, had scored through Jack Tutton and Greg Hackett and unlike the fun and games at Top Field, there was to be no second-half revival from the home side.

Lewis Smith and Kade Bagge did draw saves from the North Leigh keeper but it finished 2-0 and leaves Stotfold ninth.

Arlesey Town didn't have the best of warm-ups ahead of their big FA Vase first round proper clash on Saturday at home to Eynesbury Rovers.

They were at home to FC Romania in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division but the visitors ended up running away with a 5-0 success.

The cash-happy visitors even managed to score twice in injury time, after they had German Petrov sent-off on 79 minutes.

The hosts though had Will McClelland dismissed six minutes later to leave the game at 10 v 10 for the final stages.

The Blues have one more chance to get things right ahead of the weekend when they go to Dunstable Town on Tuesday.

Baldock Town's fine early season form hit a speed bump as they went down 3-1 to league leaders St Panteleimon.

Harry Dollimore had given the Potters Bar Town-based hosts a fright when he fired a shot over the keeper on 22 minutes.

But the home side had turned that around, taking the lead on the stroke of half-time before bagging a third in first-half stoppage time, all after they had been reduced to 10 men with 14 minutes to go.

Letchworth Eagles grabbed a much-needed 2-2 draw at home to Rothwell Corinthians in Division One.

They too had to produce some second-half magic with goals from William Blair and Austin Christie giving them a deserved share of the points at Pixmore.

They are now 17th.

Codicote are at the other end of the standings in Division Two after a 4-0 success away to Stony Stratford Town lifted them top.

Two goals from Liam Hayden and one each for Fabio Bufano and Michael Brako mean they are a point ahead of AFC Welwyn although they have played one game more.
