Coton & Watson The Marine Hero’s

Matt Coton’s penalty save and Nat Watson’s first half goal ensured Coalville came back from Liverpool with all three points

Kyle Bryant replaced Joe Pegg in the only change from the side that beat Matlock Town on Tuesday evening.

Vincent Bailey fizzed a shot wide for the hosts after a tight cagey opening ten minutes at the Marine Travel Arena.

Will Mellors-Blair then went on a lung busting run down the right as he danced past the Marine full back, his ball back across goal was met by Blair Anderson who’s first touch made a yard in the middle of the penalty area but hit his shot straight at Barnes.

Moments later a long ball up field caused the Coalville defence problems and after initially playing advantage the referee pulled the play back for a penalty as Danny Jenno was adjudged to have tugged Bailey’s shirt before he got his shot away.

Marine debutant Tom Field stepped up but his penalty effort was pushed away by Coalville keeper Matt Coton as he guessed the correct way and got both hands behind the ball to keep the scores all level.

This sparked the game into life as back up the other end Hollis & McDonald kept the ball alive down the left, the latter crossing to Will Mellors-Blair who had his ankles snapped at as he was about to pull the trigger inside the box and the referee had no option but to award Coalville a penalty this time.

Massiah McDonald stepped up but his effort was also saved by Marine keeper Ben Barnes however Nat Watson followed in and poked the rebound home to give Coalville the lead ten minutes before half time.

Coalville, now in control then started to create real openings, Cleveland Taylor’s whipped free kick just evaded Mellors-Blair and then the left back cut inside and let go a fierce shot that stung the palms of Barnes as we approached half time.

HT: Marine 0-1 Coalville.

It was a similar start to Tuesdays second half but a lot scrappier, as Coalville hung onto their advantage Marine started to throw bodies forward.

Kenny Strickland dragging a shot wide before Kyle Bryant cleared the ball off the line as for the first time in the game Coton looked beat but great work from the right back kept Coalville ahead.

A deep corner then found the head of Marine skipper Hughes but his header looped onto the top of the cross bar and out for a goal kick.

There was then no real late barrage, and as Marine pushed forward Coalville found it easy to counter as the game went on. Sub Dan Creaney cut inside before dragging a shot wide before Blair Anderson’s long range effort went over the bar.

John Shaw poked a shot past the near post for Marine in the dying moments and then the Coalville defence stood firm to the final few deep crosses. Danny Jenno and Dean Freeman looking as dominant as they have done all season as they met everything threw at them to ensure it was three wins on the bounce for the Ravens.

FT: Marine 0-1 Coalville.
