Kirby Muxloe 1-5 Hinckley AFC

Hinckley AFC made it four wins from five pre-season games after coming from behind to beat Kirby Muxloe 5-1.

AFC continued their unbeaten campaign as five different scorers helped themselves to goals on a wet afternoon at Ratby Lane.

Both sides were grateful to the 3G surface at Kirby on an afternoon where other friendlies on grass were postponed due to the persistent rain.

And Hinckley made the most of their afternoon, despite conceding inside the first five minutes for the third consecutive game as Lucca Watson-Quilter slotted home.

Under 18 player Josh Clarke equalised, before Mitchell Piggon grabbed his first of pre-season before the break with a smart finish after holding off his man.

Jordan Holmes made it three with a stooping header, before Adam Barber beat the offside trap and slid home the fourth.

The win was wrapped up by the returning Lewis Rankin late on, who converted a penalty in his first game of pre-season for the fifth as Hinckley completed a confident win.

AFC welcome newly promoted Rugby Borough on Monday evening for their final home friendly as they head into the final fortnight before the campaign gets underway.
