Coalville's Winning Run Halted At Sutton Coldfield

Coalville extended their unbeaten streak but were unable to record a 6th consecutive victory when they drew 1-1 at Sutton Coldfield on Tuesday evening

An unchanged squad was named by the Ravens for the third consecutive fixture.

Sutton Coldfield started the better of the two sides without really creating any chances that would harm Coalville whilst Coalville struggled to retain the ball. The visitors were gradually coming into the game and looked to be a threat on the counter attack. Blair Anderson cut in from the left hand side and fired a low shot on his right foot wide of goal to record Coalville's first shot on goal after fifteen minutes.

Anderson was again involved moments later, Sutton's Goalkeeper's Mason Springthorpe's attempted clearance flew straight out of play deep in the Sutton Half, Anderson quickly picked the ball up and threw the ball to the unmarked Tom McGlinchey in the Sutton penalty area however McGlinchey could only drag his shot wide of the post.

The chances were starting to flow now for Coalville with Sutton arguably still playing the better of the two sides but the home side were unable to threaten in the final third. Nat Watson and Daniel Creaney both came close with headers going just wide of the goal. Nat Watson's influence on the game was growing and this time he picked out Blair Anderson in the Sutton box but Anderson delayed on releasing his shot and was squeezed out by Sutton defenders.

Sutton's only real threat was coming from Lee Smith's huge throw in's as the midfielder looked to launch the ball into Coalville's box whenever the opportunity arose.

Coalville would take the lead five minutes before half time with a piece of brilliance from Nat Watson, the forward picked the ball up on the edge of the area with his back to goal, Watson produced a cruyff turn and fired his shot into the bottom left corner giving Springthorpe no chance.

The visitors were now well on top and had two real chances before half time. Tom McGlinchey picked out Nat Watson with a brilliant cross, his header was saved at the knees by Springthorpe, the ball fell to Jermain Hollis who poked the rebound wide.

Daniel Creaney then met Blair Anderson's corner with a powerful header but a Sutton defender was on the line to head away to keep the scores at 1-0 going into Half Time.

HT: Sutton Coldfield 0-1 Coalville.

Coalville had a big penalty shout early on in the second half, Sutton left back Zak Martin looked to have handled the ball in the penalty area but the referee waved away the penalty shouts.

Coalville started to look a different side to the one that finished the first half so strongly. Gurjit Singh threatened with a effort flashing just wide after latching on to Marcus Tudgay's flick on.

Sutton then drew level, McGlinchey was robbed of possession by Lee Smith, Smith moved the ball onto his left foot and fired a powerful low strike in off the post. The home side were continuing to cause real problems for Coalville, this time Tudgay chested the ball down to the oncoming Bobby Moseley who fired well over. Sutton again came forward and again threatened, Tudgay picked out Reece Webb with a great diagonal ball, Webb picked the ball up in the penalty area, cut on to his right foot but shot just wide of Coton's goal.

Coalville were now living a charmed life and really should have been behind by now, the visitors could do nothing to stop Sutton creating chances. Singh played a great one-two with Aaron Birch before screwing his shot wide.

In a rare attacking moment for Coalville in the second half, Kyle Bryant picked the ball up just inside the Sutton half, the full back carried on his running skipping past two players into the Sutton box and placed his shot on his left foot just wide.

The referee then made a call which seemed to bemuse everyone, Steve Towers stretched to intercept a long ball over the top from Sutton, Towers got a touch on the ball just inside Coalville's penalty area which fizzed back to Matt Coton with clearly no intention of passing back to the Goalkeeper. The referee decided to blow up and award Sutton an indirect free kick for a supposed back pass. To add to Coalville's frustrations the referee placed the ball on the penalty spot even though the supposed offence was committed further back. Lee Smith laid the ball off to Singh but his shot was met by several Coalville defenders who blocked the ball away for a corner.

After the first half where the Ravens created so many chances they ended up counting themselves lucky that they were able to come out of the game with a 1-1 draw after a second half where they looked all at sea.

FT: Sutton Coldfield 1-1 Coalville.
