Walsall Wood 2 v 1 Coleshill Town

The first of the league cup quarter-finals saw two in-form sides meet at the ML Safety Stadium. With a strong wind at their backs, Coleshill dominated the early play. A mistake by the Wood defence allowed Mykel Beckley to send the ball goalwards but it lacked power and was cleared off the line. Ricardo Reid spun his defender and advanced into the area but chose to shoot instead of laying the ball inside to the waiting Gio Dainty and the chance was lost. Wood were living a charmed life and keeper Adam Jenkins was relieved to gather the ball after an almighty scramble in the box. Reid hit a tame shot straight to Jenkins when in a decent position. Out of nothing, Wood fashioned a chance when Craig Deakin reacted quicker than the defender and poked the ball goalwards but it drifted across the face of goal and away from danger. Coleshill grabbed the lead on the stroke of half-time when Luke Edwards powered home a header from a right wing corner. Reid wasted another decent chance for Coleshill at the start of the second half, choosing to pass this time instead of shooting. Wood began to look more threatening and an overhead kick from Joey Butlin went wide. Poor defending by Coleshill gave Wood the equaliser in the 52nd minute The ball fell at the feet of Corey Carruthers and his shot took a deflection as it flew past Paul Hathaway. Wood were now in the ascendancy and a fine shot by Deakin was saved, low down, by Hathaway. Wood had the ball in the net in the 58th minute but the linesman had flagged for offside. Anthony Juxon was next to try his luck for the home side but his flying header was just over the bar. Wood scored what was to be the winner 8 minutes from time and it was another mistake by the Coleshill defence. Deakin was allowed to win the ball on the byline when it should have been cleared. He rolled the ball into the path of skipper Harry Harris who hammered the ball into the roof of the net. Wood comfortably saw out time to reach the semi-finals. A game very much of two halves and opportunities wasted by Coleshill in the first half. Wood dominated after the break and took their chances well.
