Last Minute Leveller Denies Ravens Winning Home Start

Coalville kicked off their home campaign with a disappointing draw at the Mander Cruickshank Stadium as Daniel Waldron equalised with the last kick of the game .

One change was made from the side that lost 2-0 to Leiston on the opening day of the season, with Tom McGlinchey replacing Courtney Wildin at full back.

The hosts started the contest at a high intensity, taking just a matter of seconds to produce the first chance of the game. Andrew Wright cushioned a pass into Tim Berridge on the edge of the box, who tricked his way into the area and side footed a shot just shy of the post.

Rushall responded with a chance of their own less than two minutes later through Justin Richards. The Pics front man latched onto a through ball and forced an impressive save from Max Smith-Varnam, who tipped the low effort around the post.

The Ravens really then began to control an intense opening period, with Wright striking the post in the ninth minute. The Coalville man let off an effort from inside the box which deflected off a defender and onto the base of the post.

Following a fizzling 35-yard Waldron effort that whizzed just over the bar, Berridge was given a huge opportunity to give his side the advantage when he was sent through by Tolani Omotola. However the Ravens number 10 couldn’t stand up to the task as his side footed effort was saved by Joseph Slinn.

There wasn’t much time to rue missed opportunities however, with Berridge again being played through by Omotola on the break. Berridge did again come up second best to Slinn, although the tricky playmaker managed to make amends, winning the ball back before being tripped by the keeper and winning a penalty.

Omotola was the man to step up and confidentally roll the ball into the bottom left, sending the Rushall stopper in the other direction to give the home side a deserved lead.

Despite attaining the lead on the half hour mark, it took just another four minutes for the Ravens to concede and the Pics to drag themselves back into the contest, with Joseph Hull powering home an Ashley Sammons corner.

It was then Rushall who seemed to push on following the equaliser, however it was the home side who created the next opportunity – and it was a big one. Berridge yet again caused problems for the away side’s back line as he was again tripped in the box and awarded a spot kick. Omotola again stepped up, but it was an altogether different story as the keeper easily pawed away the effort, which the Ravens frontman had opted to put in an identical spot to the first.

With the game looking set to be all square at the break, Tom McGlinchey had other ideas as he produced a stunning effort to give Coalville a half time lead. The Coalville man exchanged a one-two with Alex Dean at a corner before rasping a perfect 30-yard left-footed drive into the top corner.

There was barely anything to shout about in a tight, scrappy second half as neither side could seem to demonstrate quality decision making. Wright did have a chance to give the hosts a two-goal cushion on the hour mark however as his back post shot was blocked by an opposing defender.

Hull headed wide from close range and a Tyler Lyttle cross narrowly avoided the boots of two outstretched Pics in the six-yard box as the visitors struggled for a leveller.

But the elusive equaliser did eventually come to fruition with the very last kick of the game when a high cross from the right found Waldron, who finished coolly to earn a dramatic point for Rushall and leave Coalville in frustration.

Coalville will be hoping to make amends for the disappointment on Saturday, when they host Alvechurch at 3pm.
