LUDLOW Town Colts twice came from a goal down to win 3-2 at Hereford Pegasus Reserves to climb to fifth place in the Herefordshire Premier.

Playing their first league game in almost a month, Ludlow struggled early on but opened the scoring against the run of play with a great strike from Sam Thomas from just inside the area.

They wasted a golden chance to double the lead as Dan Crowther’s penalty was saved after Chris Breakwell was fouled in the box and, buoyed by the let-off, Pegasus equalised soon after.

A serious injury to centre-half Morgan Millard, not long back from a spell on the sidelines, rocked Colts and the hosts quickly took the lead.

However, right on the stroke of half-time, Ludlow levelled as Breakwell headed home an in-swinging corner from Jamie Hammonds.

Colts dominated the second half but were denied a second penalty for a foul on Jake Conod with a free-kick awarded on the edge of the box instead.

However, spurred on by the injustice, Ludlow went on to claim the winner as Martyn Jones set up Crowther to score and redeem his earlier spot-kick miss.
