Ravens Crush Corby to End the Season on a High

A brace from Nathan Watson, as well as goals from Marcus Marshall and Rory Coleman earned a final day win for Coalville, with the result also assuring relegation for the visitors.

Coalville stormed to an eventful 4-1 victory over Corby Town, relegating the Steelmen from the Northen Premier League. The game provided a fitting ending to a successful season for the Ravens, achieving their aim of staying up, in relatively comfortable fashion, finishing in 17th place in the club’s debut NPL season.

A first half brace from Nathan Watson put the Ravens firmly in control, Marcus Marshall extended Coalville’s lead early in the second half before Aaron Brown was shown a red for the visitors. Corby netted a consolation goal through Phillip Trainer, with Rory Coleman rounding off the scoring with an injury time strike.

Tommy Brookbanks made two changes to the side that narrowly lost at Barwell on bank holiday Monday, with Danny Jenno and Malachi Lavelle-Moore returning in place of Luke Foster and Massiah McDonald.

Corby Town initially looked up to the task as they started with real intent, looking to impose themselves on the game. They provided the first effort after just 30 seconds as Spencer Weir-Daley smacked a half volley wide from range.

However, Coalville began to assert their superiority in quality, and demonstrated why they are the team that’s been safe for weeks and not battling it out on the final day. In the 15th minute, Malachi Lavelle-Moore cut in on the right flank, before drifting a cross onto the head of Nathan Watson, who powered his header past Aidan Grant to give the Ravens the lead.

2 minutes later, Corby almost found an instant leveller as Steven Leslies’ right sided free-kick was tipped over by Matt Coton as the ball headed for the top right corner.

Just moments after the free-kick, Liam Walshe could have made it 2-0, but he volleyed his effort over when free in the box following a corner.

The frantic pace of the game continued as Nathan Watson bagged his and Coalville’s second. Alex Dean powered down the left wing before sliding his cross into Watson, who took a touch and fired in to put the home side firmly in control.

The Ravens could have had a third just one minute later as Marcus Marshall whipped a low cross into Lavelle-Moore, whose first-time effort flashed just wide of the post.

As the tempo began to lower, Rory Coleman tried a shot from range, with his purposeful left footed strike being deflected over the bar.
Corby were in desperate need of some inspiration before half time, and they almost found it through David Bell, whose free-kick crashed against the bar before being cleared.

Despite the threat of relegation, Corby seemed to lack the urgency and motivation to turn the game around heading into the break, with the side seemingly solely relying on Workington to beat Sutton Coldfield.

Coalville extended their lead early in the first half as Alex Dean again ran rampant down the left, lifting a cross to the far post, where Marcus Marshall was on hand to slot in a third and all but secure the result.

Things went from bad to worse for the Steelmen in the 61st minute as Corby defender Aaron Brown was dismissed following a bust up in the Coalville box.

The away side had a brilliant chance to grab a goal from the resulting corner, but a series of miss hits and blocks prevented what could surely only be a consolation.

Corby did manage to pull one back in the 68th minute, as Philip Trainer headed in a Ben Milne’s cross, narrowly crossing the line and giving the visitors a slither of hope heading into the final 20 minutes.

Alex Dean continued to torment Corby down the left wing and almost found a goal to add to his two assists in the 78th minute as he wiggled into the area before having his shot blocked by Connor Kennedy.

As the game entered its final stages, the play became much more stretched, with substitutes Ben Stokes and Edilson Antonio benefitting from the gaps in the Corby rear guard as they pushed for a lifeline. Coalville almost took full advantage in the 79th minutes as Stokes slid a through ball to Antonio, who could only scuff his shot straight at Grant.

The pair combined again moments later, Antonio this time the provider as he whipped a low cross into Stokes, whose side footed effort was saved by the outstretched leg of the Corby stopper.

Weir-Daley had the chance to set up a tight finish in the 87th minute but his half volley from a tight angle hit the side netting.
As the clock ticked down, all hope of an unlikely come back for the Steelmen slipped away. And Rory Coleman topped off an emphatic win for the Ravens in the 93rd minute as he collected the ball on the left flank before dribbling into the area and drilling the ball into the bottom right corner, providing Coalville signed off the season in style.
