Corby will face Bedford Town in the play-offs as they roared back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Coleshill Town courtesy of James Hall's 86th minute winner. The Colemen raced into the ascendancy ad were in front with six minutes on the clock, Stuart Hendrie - the younger brother of former Aston Villa midfielder Lee, who played for Morecambe in the Football League - slotting home after being teed up by Jordan Nadat. Amarvir Sandu put the hosts 2-0 up when he headed home not long afterwards but the Eagles comeback began on the stroke of half time, Leon Lobjoit finding the net after getting on the end of Jack Vasey's low cross. The equaliser arrived when Ben Ford netted at the second attempt after initially striking the up-right. And late in the day, Callum Donnelly's teasing delivery was dispatched by Hall.

By Craig Hamilton

The first action after five minutes saw Coleshill win a ball in midfield, Reece Leek played the ball to Stuart Hendrie just inside the box and he calmly slid the ball past the advancing keeper Jones for 1-0. Bedford then had a chance from a free kick from 20 yards but the kick hit the Coleshill wall. Both sides had chances as first Gio Dainty for Coleshill headed wide and then Dom Cotter in the Coleshill goal saved a header from Bedford's Vasey at the far post. Then on 22 minutes Jordan Nadat played the ball down the right to Stuart Hendrie and his perfect cross was met by Amarvir Sandhu at the far post who scored with a diving header. 2-0. Coleshill were now on top and Jordan Nadat put a shot over the bar from 18 yards but the last action of the first half saw Bedford score on 47 minutes as Lobjoit got free inside the box and placed a shot just inside the post.
Half Time: Coleshill 2-1Bedford.
The second half started with Bedford becoming even more physical with strong arm tactics both on and off the ball which the referee failed to deal with but great play down the left from Amarvir Sandhu set Jordan Nadat free. He played in Stuart Hendrie only to see his shot go just wide.
Then on 63 minutes Bedford break down their right and a cross into the box found Ford free at the far post to score, 2-2. Then Dom Cotter kept Coleshill in the game with two great saves, the first tipping a shot destined for the top corner from Ford over the bar. Amarvir Sandhu had a chance for Coleshill but his shot was saved by Jones in the Bedford goal. Then after another Coleshill attack Jones threw the ball out to Donnelly on the right, who progressed down the wing and his cross found Hall free in the six yard box to beat Dom Cotter just inside the far post. 2 -3 on 86 mins.
There is no time for Coleshill to get back into the game as Bedford's long ball and physical approach hold out for the win.
