Coalville Blow Away Hednesford To Continue Imperious Form

Towers, Creaney and Watson were all on target as a ruthless Ravens’ performance buried the Pitmen.

It wasn’t just Aileen who put in a storming performance on Tuesday night as Coalville Town blew away Hednesford Town on a gusty evening at the Mander Cruickshank Stadium, making it five wins from their last six league games.

Two changes were made from the side that won at Marine on Saturday, with Massiah McDonald and Will Mellors-Blair making way for Tom McGlinchy and Daniel Creaney in a bid to keep the side fresh.

The hosts set the tone early on, creating a stand-out opportunity in the first three minutes. Cleveland Taylor whipped a cross into the unmarked Tom McGlinchy, who glanced wide from six yards.

McGlinchy continued to be a nuisance for the visitors in the opening stages, this time wriggling past his marker before unleashing a strike that deflected comfortably up for James Wren to catch.

It took just eight minutes for Coalville to take the lead, and in spectacular fashion. Steve Towers collected the ball before letting rip from 25 yards, leaving Wren stranded as the ball crashed into the top left corner.

Confidence was high after the breakthrough as it seemed inevitable the Ravens would earn their fourth straight league win.

As the rain poured unforgivingly onto the Coalville turf, the Ravens poured ruthlessly forward into the Hednesford half. In the 15th minute Nathan Watson slid a pass through to Blair Anderson, whose low effort was kept out by Wren.

After a fairly subdued start by the visitors, Daniel Glover attempted to change their fortunes, having a half volley blocked by Danny Jenno in the 16th minute before another of his shots was almost directed in by Jordan Nadat.

However, Coalville were unfazed by the chances and proceeded to double their advantage after 24 minutes. Anderson fired a skimming cross to the back post, where Nathan Watson was on hand to tap in and make it 2-0.

Following the attainment of a second goal, a period of pressure on the Ravens’ rear-guard ensued. Matthew Coton made an outstanding save to deny Joseph Ballinger in the 31st minute, tipping over the defender’s goal bound header from close range following a corner.

Hednesford got a reward for their spurt of pressure moments later as a penalty was awarded for the visitors after Jenno was deemed to of fouled Glover. The Pitmen number nine then took the spot kick himself, firing the ball into the bottom left corner via a touch from Coton, who couldn’t quite replicate his Marine heroics.

Despite conceding, the home side didn’t break stride as they restored their two goal advantage just before half time. After some slick play between the two, McGlinchy released Jermain Hollis down the right before he drove a cross into the centre, deflecting off Samuel Oji and into his own net.

The Ravens could have been forgiven for beginning the second period in a complacent manner, but they did just the opposite, netting twice in the first seven minutes of the half whilst playing some scintillating football.

Daniel Creaney put Coalville firmly in the driving seat with his first goal for the club in the 49th minute. The Ravens forward started off the move by executing a perfectly weighted outside of the boot through ball to find Watson, who squared the ball to McGlinchy before he eventually found Creaney, who side footed the ball low past Wren.

Creaney then bagged his second three minutes later, powering home a header following Anderson’s pinpoint inswinging free kick from the left flank.

There were no real worries for Coalville to contend with as they looked to see out an impressive victory. Jenno made a last ditch block to deny Glover in the 62nd minute before Coton made a solid stop to prevent former Raven Jordan Nadat from scoring.

Chances were few and far between in the latter stages of the match, with Hednesford seemingly resigned to defeat and the Ravens safe in the knowledge they would see out the game and continue their rich vein of form.

A sixth goal almost came for the hosts in the 82nd minute as Massiah McDonald surged down the left before finding fellow substitute Ollie Bassett, who skewed his shot inches wide on the stretch.

Hednesford managed to find a late consolation, with Daniel Glover heading past Coton at the back post in injury time. But it wasn’t enough to spoil the now all too familiar taste of victory for Coalville as the victory lifts them up to 8th in the Evo-Stik Northen Premier League.

The Ravens will be looking to make it five on the trot on Saturday, where they face tough competition in high flying Witton Albion at the Mander Cruickshank Stadium.
