Kings Langley will travel back from Staffordshire empty-handed this afternoon after Chris Cummins’ men lost 2-0 at league leaders Tamworth.
After the visitors started brightly, it was the home side who took the lead after a moment of pandemonium in the Langley box.
Tamworth 1-0 Kings Langley
Kings responded well to going behind with Mitchell Weiss and Louie Collier leading the visitors’ efforts to get back in the game but after a frantic and combative first half, Kings still trailed 1-0.
To their credit, Kings Langley kept attacking in the second half and enjoyed much more pressure and possession, but, with a quarter of the game to go, it was Tamworth who doubled their lead when the ball was slid through and slotted home after a free kick.
