Royals suffer with first half nightmare at Coalville

Sutton found themselves four down by half time with the home side taking advantage of more defensive woes from the Royals.

After a poor Christmas period which included a defeat at home to fellow relegation strugglers Halesowen, Sutton made the trip to near neighbours Coalville with two new signings, much travelled striker Louis Briscoe and centre back Orrin Pendly and also starting for the first time their talisman forward Justin Richards.
It did not take Coalville long to get their noses ahead when a mixup in defence was prodded home by Daniel Creaney in 11 minute
The goal was followed by a sustained spell of pressure from Sutton and Justin went close on two occasions to getting the equaliser.
On the 30 minutes Creaney scored his second to increase Coalville's lead another poor piece of defending. Coalville were scoring at will and 5minutes later Coalville went further ahead when Nathan Watson scored the third goal.
A terrible first half finished when Coalville were awarded a penalty in the 45th minute and it was fired home by Creaney for his hat trick.
When Sutton did get through early in the second half substitute Matt Waters headed over with an open goal in front of him
A soft penalty enabled Richards to score in the 72 minute.
More pressure from Sutton saw Sutton get a second in the 76th minute when Richards scored his second when he glanced home a free kick from Matt Waters.
This was a better second half performance but there is still a long way to go to climb away from certain relegation.
