Alvis remain bottom following Lichfield thrashing

FOOTBALL: COVENTRY Alvis remain bottom of the Midland Football League Division One after slipping to a 4-0 loss against Lichfield City.

Jason Pyott, who took over as Alvis boss a month ago, has introduced several new players to his side since taking over.

But his work has paid few dividends yet, despite Alvis showing more purpose up front throughout Saturday’s game.

Lichfield went ahead in the 11th minute when Dale Roberts headed home at the far post following a corner.

Alvis then enjoyed a flurry of activity with Jon Clough in the Lichfield City goal kept busy dealing with several good efforts .

However it was Jack Tregarth in the Alvis goal who made the finest save of the match with a spectacular effort to deny Griffiths from increasing the lead.

Griffiths was involved again on 46 minutes when his shot was side footed home by Joe Speck for his first Lichfield goal.

Having been denied and setup the previous goal, Griffiths wasn’t to be denied again.

He hit home Lichfield’s third on 65 minutes with a left footed strike which went across Alvis’ keeper.

Coventry Alvis retaliated when substitute Isa Abraham was denied twice.

But Lichfield wrapped up the game when Josh Sedgeley despatched a loose ball into the net.

Alvis are next in action on Saturday at home when they entertain Cadbury Athletic in a Midland League fixture before hosting Coventry Copsewood in the Birmingham Floodlit Cup on Wednesday.
