Stephan Morley's injury-time freekick ended City's six game unbeaten run and gave AFC Telford United victory at the New Bucks Head.

Morley beat goalkeeper Adam Bartlett with a 25 yard shot following a foul by Sean Newton on substitute Andre Brown.

City had taken the lead on 36 minutes when striker Macaulay Langstaff headed home a cross from Alex Harris.

But United took hold of the game in the second half and Darryl Knights equalised in the 73rd minute with a shot from the edge of the City box.

City had been under pressure prior to Knights' goal with Bartlett producing a finger-tip save to deny Knights, Daniel Udoh shooting over when unmarked on the edge of the area, and Jonathan Royle heading against the post at a corner.

Winger David Ferguson spurned an opportunity to restore City's advantage just moments after United's equaliser when shooting wide at the far post from a Nathan Dyer cross.

Manager Sam Collins made three changes to his side with Dyer, Hamza Bencherif and Ferguson replacing Kallum Griffiths, Tom Allan, and the suspended Simon Heslop.

City had edged the first half and defended solidly with Bartlett rarely tested.

Former City striker Amari Morgan-Smith bundled the ball over the City goalline at a corner in the 26th minute but his 'goal' was ruled out for a foul on Bartlett.
