EARLSWOOD, who lost James Beauchamp through injury during the warm up, won this Midland Combination Premier Division game with two goals in the last four minutes against a Villa side who twice came from behind to equalise.

Earls took the lead after 36 minutes when Charisma Agbonlahor picked up a pass in the Pelsall penalty area and beat their keeper with a shot just inside the post.

Early in the second half, Daniel Ballison headed home the equaliser but Earls were back in the lead 12 minutes later when Matthew Cross slammed the ball home. However on 80 minutes Villa equalised only for Sam Wills to give Earls the lead once again. Two minutes later Dale Edwards sealed the game with the fourth.

The victory followed their midweek win over local rivals Blackwood, 5-2 away. Blackwood took the lead twice but goals from Laurence Martin, Jak Walton (2), Matty Cross, and Danny Lennon.

On Saturday Earls play Nuneaton Griff away, kick off 3pm.
