The Pitmen should of taken the lead on the half hour after controlling the game. Reece Flanagan came close to opening the scoring before Andre Landell fired over from close range following Carter Lycett's dangerous cross from the left wing.
Another good quality Pitmen move saw Ryan Pryce tripped in the area with Landell stepping up to score the penalty in the 39th minute. Flanagan nearly scored just before half time with a carbon copy of his goal against Needham Market last Saturday but this time the ball drifted just wide of the far post
The Pitmen managed the second half of the game and bar a brief spell of Alvechurch pressure the score only looked like changing in favour of the visitors. George Cater went close after finding himself through on goal, while Landell forced a double save from Daniel Jezeph.
