Coleshill kept up their record of never taking a single point from games with Tipton Town, although in this one they can consider themselves very unlucky in not breaking the duck with at least a point. The winner came is stoppage time with a thunderess effort from Bannister who was lucky to be on the field after an horrendous challenge which didn't even yield a yellow.

Bannister breaks Coleshill hearts in final minute
COLESHILL and Tipton battled it out in a thrilling game of football at Packington Lane on Tuesday night.

The first half was a stalemate with both teams failing to create a clear opening even though the game flowed from end to end.

The second half was entertaining and cracks started to appear in the defences.

It was Coleshill who went ahead in the 60th minute following a beautiful move between Danny Carter and Richard Gregory.

It ended with Gregory scoring with a well-placed shot into the bottom right corner of the net.

Tipton rallied and were soon pressing the Coleshill defence and got their equaliser. A whipped corner was headed goalwards by Paul Henley but was deflected over the line.

Tipton kept working hard and, on the stroke of full time, a fantastic shot by Craig Bannister nicked victory.

Coleshill chairman Paul Billing said: "We should have won and feel we shaded the 90 minutes. It was a terrific game though, played at pace, with no prisoners taken, and fantastically entertaining for the fans."

Another hard fought away win for Tipton

Tipton Town came into the game resting 4 players from the home defeat against Boldmere on Saturday. Page for Cox, Huckfield for Parker, Stone for McFarlane and Cooper replacing Waite. In the Coleshill Match Programme the editor had got us down for 11 changes but some bright spark noticed that it was the Bridgnorth Town team. With two of the top ten current league scorers in the opposition line-up Tipton had an almighty task to keep the pair from scoring with changes to the back four. On a pitch showing signs of previous recent matches, it was hard with an uneven bounce, both teams struggled in the first half to gain any momentum. Although Page got down well to save in the opening minutes from a speculative shot. Coleshill adopted the right tactics from the off with long balls out of defence which,unusually, Tipton found difficult to deal with. With Tipton struggling to get a grip in midfield, not clearing their lines and playing in wrong areas it was Black and Plows on the right showing good awareness to get good crosses into the Coleshill penalty area. Unluckily no definite chances materialised. Tonks was always a threat from set pieces and two good chances in the 40th and 43rd minutes failed and all in all both teams were trying but nothing seem to be going right for them H-T 0-0

Coleshill reported their highest league gate of the season. Coleshill were now playing, putting a few passes together and looking dangerous. Tiptons play was becoming more desperate and ragged,and relying on the excellent Bannister and Downing to "feed on scraps" rather than the close intricate passing movements the Tipton supporters are used to with the excellent run of results they have been getting. The breakthrough came for Coleshill in the 62nd minute when Gregory, after some good all round team work left Tipton floundering, finished excellently driving the ball past the diving Page who somehow still managed to get his fingertips to the ball but couldn't stop the ball nestling in the far corner. The goal spurred on Tipton who for once manged to put Coleshill under pressure resulting in Bannister hitting the angle of post and bar. Downing should have done better with a free header in the 78minute and suddenly with substitutions on both sides the momentum swung. With Tipton more on it now and the team taking the front twos lead, a superb corner from Cooper was met by Henley who powerfully headed past Stannage to equalise in the 83rd minute. With the game heading for stalemate, and the Coleshill supporters still wondering how they have dropped two points, up steps Bannister in the dying seconds to gather the ball in midfield, control it, look up and from fully 30yds unleash a wonder strike starting straight and curling the ball away from the keeper to register another victory and take all three points for Tipton their 7th in 8 league games and still unbeaten away in all competitions since October 29th. A much stiffer test awaits at Coventry Sphinx on Saturday.
