Curzon's first visit to Tamworth FC saw them go down 2-1 in a scrappy game.
 
Tamworth went on the offensive straight away and Curzon were under pressure during the early exchanges 
 
 
After the early  activity it became a game of errors as neither side really looked likely to break the deadlock.
 
Tamworth opened the scoring on 39 minutes direct from a free kick. Tamworth's Ellis Deeney curled in a brilliant free kick with Hakan Burton rooted to the spot.
 
 
 
Curzon started the second half much more positively as the looked to level the scores, Matty Crothers curled an effort just wide on 52 minutes but within a couple of minutes Tamworth had doubled their lead.
 
Tamworth's Paul Green took a superb touch which took him away from Connor Hampson and his fired in cross was caused mayhem in the Curzon box with Ross Dyer forcing the ball home to make it 2-0.
 
Curzon keeper Hakan Burton received a wrist injury in his attempts to save and was unable to continue. Cameron Mason came on to replace him.
 
 
 
Curzon brought on Dan Cockerline and then Mike Norton as they attempted to get back in to the game and immediately Ryan Brooke had a header cleared off the line in the 78th minute.
 
Curzon then got a  lifeline with two minutes remaining as Brooke scored their first goal in threree games, flicking in Norton's header from close range.
 
Unfortunately the score remained 2-1 to Tamworth at the final whistle and Tamworth came away with nothing from their first visit to The Lamb.
