Midland Combination Premier Division
Coleshill Town 4 v 0 Southam United
Scorers: Matty Robinson 3, Michael Campbell.
Coleshill put some light between themselves and 3rd placed Southam with this valuable and well deserved victory. Town have put the disappointing defeat to Highgate behind them and have won three and drawn one of their last four games scoring 15 and conceding just 3. Southam on the other hand have fell apart and after going 20 games undefeated, have now lost the last four.
The strong wind played a major part in the game with Coleshill defending solidly against the conditions going into the break at 0-0. The league's highest scorers would always back themselves to get a goal but it is the defence that deserves all the credit as Southam failed to score for only the second time all season. Danny Carter has been inspirational over the last few weeks but he was getting little joy from an organised but robust United defence. Michael Campbell replaced Carter and was on the score sheet within minutes to break the deadlock on 63mins. Campbell has been short of confidence and desperatley needed that goal, his 17th of the season, but hopefully will now go on to finish the season in style. The game then opened up and it became the Matty Robinson show with Coleshill's leading scorer getting his third hat trick of the campaign. Robinson is now on 21 league goals, 24 in total, equaling a club record set by Tim Hilton back in 2000/01.
Only eight games remain and still some difficult fixtures to come, no more so than bogey team Nuneaton Griff this saturday, but if the momentum can be maintained, promotion is still a possibility and the work needed to advance to the Alliance will be complete by the deadline date!
Team: Craig Johnson, Andy Sutherland, Lee Millard, Neil Kitching, Lee Hunt, James Dance, Simon Volante, Ryan Scott (Richard Kavanaugh), Danny Carter (Michael Campbell), Matty Robinson, Kristian Kelsall (Stuart Adamson). Subs not used Steve Smith, Ashley Robinson.
