Coleshill Town were 3-1 winners at Shepshed Dynamo the goals coming from Mykel Beckley, Dean Rathbone and Reece Leek after Matt Gardner had scored an early opener for the home side.

The run continues! Seven straight wins in all competitions and six consecutive league wins. Coleshill could not be in better form and they now have a full week to prepare for the big FA Vase game this coming Saturday.

This was another tough game, on a very heavy pitch against a side that took no prisoners but the difference between the sides were the three quality goals that Coleshill scored. Dynamo battered Town in the opening stages and took a deserved lead on 8 minutes when Read broke from midfield and crossed for the unmarked Gardner and although he took his time almost allowing keeper Paul Hathaway to block his shot, he managed to find the net. But this team never gives up and slowly started to work their way back into the game. A Josh Quaynor cross was headed on by Tom Fishwick to Dean Rathbone who headed just wide. The home side almost made it two when Langham headed into the side netting from a great cross. Town were level on 21 minutes when a long clearance by Paul Hathaway was helped on by Jordan Nadat to Dean Rathbone who found Mykel Beckley wide left. The in-form striker volleyed the ball into the far corner from just inside the box. Reece Leek headed wide then Mykel Beckley cut inside from the left again but this time his effort was palmed out for a corner. In a sustained attack Dean Rathbone, Dale Taylor and Mykel Beckley all had goalbound shots blocked on the 18 yard line. Paul Hathaway dove on a cross from Langham which was heading for Read then Beckley had a toe poke shot saved by the home keepers feet. Gardner looked a certain scorer but Paul Hathaway flung himself full-length to push away his header and then a deflected shot went inches past the Coleshill post. Langham got into a great position in the box but sent his effort well wide and the final action of the half saw Tom Fishwick head Dean Rathbone's corner just over the bar.

Mykel Beckley volleyed a Dean Rathbone cross wide at the far post then a great ball by Josh Quaynor sent Jordan Nadat free but home keeper Gathercole was out quick to save at Nadat's feet then on the hour mark Dean Rathbone lit up the ground with a rocket shot into the top of the net from 25 yards. Mykel Beckley hit the side netting from a great position then on 68 minutes Tom Weale burst from midfield and found Jordan Nadat and although he was fouled Mykel Beckley kept the move going, his cross headed into the net by Reece Leek. Tom Weale took a free kick from fully 35 yards and only just sent his effort over the bar. Gathercole saved with his feet again from Jordan Nadat, Simeon Cobourne went down in the box but a penalty would have been harsh. For Dynamo Umar headed wide, Paul Hathaway saved at the feet of Gardner and Prenderville shot wide from distance. Both Craig Milligan and Mykel Beckley shot just past the post and Reece Leek had his effort saved by Gathercole's feet again.

A difficult game but a well deserved three points in the end.
