A poor Hitchin Town defensive display led to back-to-back losses for the Canaries after losing 4-1 to Farnborough on Saturday.

Boss Mark Burke expected a tough game, but maybe not as tough as the one he got.

Hitchin started positively, with a poor Farnborough clearance falling to Donnelly, who smashed the ball home from six yards.

Elliot Bailey then had a goal ruled offside but as Donnelly said on Twitter, that was as good as it got.

Reece Coles dinked over Michael Johnson straight from a Farnborough goal kick to level the score on 32 minutes.

Boro added another on 36 minutes and went into the break 2-1 up, but Hitchin were still in it.

Hitchin didn’t look like scoring in the second half as the home side added two more goals in the 63rd and 66th minutes to seal a comprehensive 4-1 victory.

Writing on Twitter after the game, striker Brett Donnelly called it an awful performance from all and it was hard to disagree.

The result drops Hitchin down to 17th prior to Monday night’s game at fifth placed Redditch.
