Missed Chances Cost The Gingerbreads

The Gingerbreads lost out to a late goal in tonight's fixture against Coalville Town.

Adam Stevens made one change to Saturday's starting line up, Rhys Lewis came in for the injured Stefan Galinski.

On 18 minutes Lee Shaw slotted the ball home but the Assistants flag had been long raised for offside.

5 minutes later Coalville had an opportunity to take the lead. Kieran Preston brought down the Coalville forward on the edge of the box. Former Gingerbread Nathan Watson stepped up to take but Preston saved well as the ball went down the middle and he was saving to his left.

The Gingerbreads stepped it up after the break, but the goal never came.

First Jordan Hempenstall's shot was pushed over the bar, Sam Purcicoe saw his header go over the bar, Lee Shaw saw had a shot cleared off the line, Jordan Hempenstall's powerful shot flashed over the bar, Lee Shaw saw another chance blocked, Curtis Burrows hit the post.

In the final minute Coalville attacked down the left and their shot was well blocked by Matt Baker, however it rebounded to the Coalville forward who put the ball back into the empty net.

The Gingerbreads hadn't given up and the best chance fell to substitute Jack McMenemy but his shot from 12 yards went over the bar.

Man of the Match chosen by Match Sponsor George McCorquodale was Kieran Preston

Next up for The Gingerbreads, it's a return to the Meres as we take on Whitby Town on Saturday.
