Tipton Town 2 Coleshill Town 1
Tipton returned to winning ways with a much needed 2-1 victory over Coleshill Town, they had to do it the hard way coming from behind after the visitors had dominated the first half.
The home side were dealt a blow with Leon Jackson, Danny Bragoli and Eric Bowen all out through injury, Joe Titley, Nathan Jones and Danny Campbell all started, Ryan Mosedale returned to the squad from injury taking his place on the bench.
The visitors started brightly and almost grabbed the lead inside the opening two minutes, only some desperate defending kept the score at 0-0, the goal wasn’t long in coming and Jon Powis popped up at the back post to convert.
Coleshill continued to make the running, Luke Williams was denied a spectacular goal when his volley flashed across the face of the goal. Just four minutes before the break and Chris Gummery’s header came back of the post.
Scott Stevenson fired a Tipton free kick over the bar just before the interval with the home side’s only real chance of note.
Tipton changed it around at the break, Danny Campbell and Jones were replaced by Chris Turner and Mosedale.
Tipton quickly got on the front foot after the break and began to control the game, eleven minutes after the interval and the scores were level when Chris Morris produced an excellent finish from close range to net number 11 of the season.
It was all Tipton with the play, Turner fired a free kick wide of the target, some good link up play from the home side kept the pressure on as Tipton pushed to take the lead.
The second goal did come with fifteen minutes to play, John Hill notching his first senior goal for the club when he reacted quickest after Coleshill had failed to clear, despite some protests from the visitors who claimed a foul.
The game was far from over and back came Coleshill late on, substitute Robert Freeman ghosted into the box and crashed his header against the crossbar but Tipton hung on for the win.
