Late Mondal Strike Condemns Coalville To Defeat Against Ten Man Whitby

Coalville put in a disappointing performance against the Seasiders, failing to make their man advantage pay in the second half.

Both sides entered the contest at the Mander Cruickshank languishing in the lower reaches of the Northen Premier League, and it showed for much of the game, with a shortage of overall chances throughout the encounter.

Coalville entered the game on a high, having won 3-0 against Mickleover last time out in the Integro Cup. Just the one change was made from Thursday’s convincing performance, with Jermaine Hollis coming in for Tom McGlinchey.

It was the visitors who started on the front foot and but for Lee Torr they would have taken an early lead. The Ravens defender did well to recover and snuff out the ever-dangerous Junior Mondal after an exceptional lofted through ball from Lewis Maloney sent him through.

Two half chances followed for either side in quick succession, with Modal striking a volley wide and Cleveland Taylor lashing a shot just shy of the top right corner from the edge of the box.

Whitby then came within a lick of paint of an opener in the 22nd minute. Maloney burst down the left before his attempted cutback was deflected onto his own post and wide by Dean Freeman.

Two extra chances then fell for the two sides, with Danny Jenno having an effort cleared off the line and Callum Patton only managing a tame shot after working his way into the area.

Shots on goal then quickly became a rare commodity in the contest as the game entered a competitive yet uninspiring spell up until half time.

After a dull first period, the second half got off to a lively start as Callum Patton’s wild challenge on Daniel Creaney in the 49th minute earned him a straight red card.

However, the Ravens struggled to make their extra man count, with Whitby instead looking the superior side.

The hosts’ main source of creativity came in the form of crosses, with Creaney twice heading narrowly wide from inside the box.

There were then strong appeals for Coalville in the 68th minute after Andrew May blocked Watson’s cross with his arm inside the box.

This was then followed by one of the most baffling decisions of the season. I the 72nd minute, Mondal pounced on a poor Freeman header and raced through, he took the ball around Elliott Taylor before somehow taking the ball too far wide with an open goal at his mercy.

It was a let off for the hosts, who again thought they were hard done by after Watson was again denied a penalty. The winger, who penned a new contract prior to the contest, looked to be hauled down as he broke into the area.

The decisive moment then occurred in the 86th minute and Mondal made up for his earlier mistake. The rapid winger latched onto Kyle Bryant’s scuffed clearance, whizzed across the edge of the box and arrowed the ball into the bottom right and out of the reach of Taylor.

Poor decision making and overall quality then restrained Coalville from a real late surge for an equaliser, and this was made harder when Watson was forced to hobble off with all substitutions already made.

The Ravens will be hoping for a much better performance next Saturday, when they entertain tenth placed Workington.
