Depressing Cup Exit For Coleshill

Coleshill bowed out of the Endsleigh Challenge Cup after a dismal performance at Highgate. It was one of those nights for Coleshill where nothing went right against a side they would normally beat. Town dominated most of the play but were punished for a lack of concentration at the back. The first half was all Coleshill but they could not break the deadlock. Six minutes after the interval, Coleshill were caught on the break and went a goal down. But the visitors were given a life line two minutes later when Ant McManus converted a dubious penalty. Coleshill were caught again two minutes later and were left chasing the game. It was no surprise that they were caught again while searching for the equaliser.
