Match Preview: Pershore Town (h)

Hinckley AFCAfter Luke Richards reached the landmark on Tuesday, Mitchell Tomlinson will become the second player to reach 100 Hinckley AFC appearances if he plays against Pershore Town this afternoon.
As the only player to have been with the club constantly since our first season, Mitchell would have reached the landmark far sooner but for missing the entirety of last season through injury.
But having battled back from that, the versatile defender, who has played across the back four during his time with the club, will bring up his century with his next game despite still only being 21 years of age.
Midland Football LeagueThat could be tomorrow if he retains his shirt, when AFC entertain a Pershore side looking for their third win in five games.
On the subject of centuries, Hinckley also brought up their 100th league goal of the season on Thursday, despite having only played 28 games.
After beating Bolehall Swifts and Cadbury Athletic, keeping clean sheets in both, AFC extended their unbeaten run to seven games with six wins included in that run.
Pershore TownOne of those wins was over Pershore in February, but it was also the game, alongside Ilkeston, in which they looked most like defeat. Richard Lavery’s side were two goals down late in the first half, but Josh Burniston’s brace either side of Richard Munday’s header turned the game on its head.
Ten points in their last six games, only losing twice to Ilkeston, have lifted Pershore to 13th in Division One with 36 points from their 33 games.
