Coleshill Town 2-1 Heanor Town

Late Coleshill winner prevents Lions from claiming deserved point

Matthew Gardner's last-gasp winner denied Heanor a share of the spoils in an entertaining game at Pack Meadow.

As has often been the case this season Heanor started the game well, and took the lead in the 8th minute when Shaun Roulston was given the freedom of Coleshill to head home from a corner.

The Lions continued to create chances and nearly added to their tally when Elliott Reeves found his close range effort blocked by the Coleshill 'keeper following an incisive counter-attack.

However, Coleshill were themselves creating chances and had a goal disallowed in the 23rd minute after Robert Evans produced his best Maradona impression to needlessly punch the ball into the net. He subsequently received a yellow card.

Ten minutes before half-time, the Lions had a good shout for penalty when Jordan Lee's jinking run was ended abruptly in the penalty area, however, the referee waved away any appeals.

Moments later, Coleshill got their equaliser after Jordan Nadat got on the end of a long ball to slot his effort under the advancing Cammidge.

Heanor were not be undeterred, however, and Reeves capitalised on some sloppy Coleshill play to tee up Jordan Lee, but Lee's effort was straight at the 'keeper.

The second half saw Heanor deal well with increased Coleshill pressure, including a smart save by Cammidge from Reece Leek's powerful effort from 30 yards.

There were opportunities for Heanor, however, and none better than when Reeves dragged his effort just wide after being played in.

But, after defending stoically throughout the half, Coleshill managed to grab a winner in the dying moments of the game. Drew Aiton's thunderous strike cannoned off the bar and Matthew Gardner bundled home the rebound.

It was a result Heanor certainly didn't deserve, and they will look to get back to winning ways against Highgate United on Saturday 7th October.
