The second goal came with 25 minutes on the clock after Clement found Lewi Burnside who beat two players before tucking a shot beyond the Sporting keeper.

James Beeson was forced to make a low save as the visitors looked to find a way back into the game.

But the third Lichfield goal arrived on 40 minutes when Dunn curled a wonderful effort into he top corner from outside the box.

Two minutes later and Dunn was at it again, this time sliding in to finish off a Burnside cross to make it 4-0 at half time.

The visitors pulled one back a minute into the second half when Louie Newbold netted from close range.

Clement fired wide as Lichfield looked to make it five before Cooksey did well to keep out an Edwards shot.

Teenage debutant Alex Ryder then went close for City as he fired narrowly over.

Lichfield’s fifth goal eventually came ten minutes from time when Jude Taylor found the bottom corner from Dunn’s cross.
