Cottesmore Amateurs made it four games unbeaten in all competitions with 5-3 comeback win at home to Lutterworth Athletic Reserves on Tuesday night in the Jelson Homes Senior Cup.

However Amateurs had to come back from 3-1 down at half time to secure the victory.

Cottesmore manager Neil Miller said: “If we can start games like we finish them we will be doing really well.”

He said coming from behind is becoming a bit of a trend for his side but they did it ably on Tuesday.

Miller said: “We are not conceding goals we are giving them away at the moment.”

So after two gifts in the first 15 minutes for Lutterworth John Love scored a header to get the hosts back into the contest at Rogues Park. But Lutteroworth struck again before the break, with long balls over the top doing the damage.

Cottesmore had created at least five good chances and had plenty of possession but had failed to make it count.

At half time Miller resisted suggestions to change the formation and insisted his side show more commitment and determination to win tackles and headers.

They did and they also found their shooting boots, scoring four, with Alex Mackie hitting a brace, Love adding his second of the night and Shaun Denigan scoring once.
