Reds extend their winning run to four

Conor Tinnion signed off for his three game suspension by scoring the only goal as Reds beat their Leicestershire opponents for the first time.

In a game of few clear cut chances, the home side were good value for the three points and grinding out a victory is a great quality to possess.

Remember those early games on the road when we were the better side yet failed to win – swings and roundabouts, I suppose.

The only goal came in the thirty-fourth minute after a good flowing move came to an abrupt halt when Ruben Desrosiers tripped Scott Allison. With our penalty history well documented over the past fifteen months, Tinnion took responsibility and duly converted – just!

Reds dominated the first half, moved the ball about well, maintained a good tempo throughout yet genuine scoring opportunities were scarce.

The best move, just before the penalty was awarded, saw Sam Joel, Allison and Tinnion combine to good effect but there was no end product.

And Coalville almost levelled matters on the stroke of half time. Nathan Watson got beyond Reds’ rearguard but, from a great position, lifted the ball high and wide of the Town End goal.

Two long distance shots in the second half saw Joel send his effort just over the bar while an even better attempt from Allison produced a spectacular save from Matthew Coton, one his father would have been proud of.

But it was Reds ‘keeper, Aaran Taylor, who came to the fore late in the game to preserve his clean sheet and ensure his team mates the victory they deserved.

Ravens substitute Ollie Bassett thought he had equalised but his attempted lob was plucked out of the air by Taylor and, in the last minute, the Reds skipper was quickly off his line to smother the ball at Massiah McDonald’s feet.

Two important stops which manager David Hewson recognised afterwards, “We are lucky to have him and those two saves effectively got us the three points in the end,” he said.

Praise too for Matty Douglas who has been deprived of game time recently. He looked a little rusty at times but got stronger the longer the game went, winning several important headers when Coalville applied late pressure.
