P25 W4 D4 L17 F32 A74 Pts16 Pos19/20

Team: Chris Davies, Scott Smith (Malcolm Power), Chris Mann, Wayne McKeown, Steven Wyer (Ben Usher), Jason Taggart, Tony Gormley, Paul Burns, Mitchell Thompson, Michael Graham, Jimmy Stafford. (Confirmed)

Coleshill looked as though they had shook off the Coventry jinx as they led going into the last quarter of the game but four goals in 17 minutes put paid to that. Town have lost the last three games to Marconi, Massey and now Sphinx, conceding 16 goals.

Coventry Sphinx left it late to beat Coleshill Town 4-1 at Pack Meadow where Town took the lead when Malcolm Powers punished an error by the visiting keeper. All four Coventry goals came in the last seventeen minutes. Damien McDade equalised, Mike Callender gave Sphinx the lead, McDade netted their third and Nathan Morrison made it 4-1.
