For the first 15 minutes there looked nothing between the sides but a long hopeful ball eluded the home defence leaving Jamie Rudd clear on goal and he confidently passed the ball into the net under keeper Paul Hathaway. 0-1. 16 minutes. In a copy cat move Jamie Rudd was clear again but skied his shot. Coleshill were given a gift of a goal when a Harry Jones back pass fell nicely to Daniel Dubidat who smartly shot under the visiting keeper. 1-1. 30 minutes. Aylesbury has a series of crosses that Coleshill dealt comfortably with but the last one fell into the path of the unmarked David O’Conner who finished well past Hathaway. 34 minutes. Coleshill had a free kick on the edge of the box but when Josh Webb’s kick hit the wall Aylesbury broke quickly slicing open the Town defence and Rudd rounded the keeper and rolled the ball into an empty net. 39 minutes.
Half time Coleshill 1-3 Aylesbury.
A much less eventful affair second half as Aylesbury sat back and Coleshill had much more possession. Daniel Dubidat has a shot deflected for a corner, and a shot over the bar, Kieran Hinchley had a shot saved by visiting keeper Jack Hopwood but the last word fell to Aylesbury as a home throw in deep in their own half was intercepted by Anthony Ball who ran into the box and bent the ball round Hathaway into the corner of the net 1-4. 87 minutes.
Things are just not going their way at the moment for Coleshill but with so many first choice players missing their luck will change when everyone is available but they most stop gifting the opposition goals.
A VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE
A Match Report taken from the Aylesbury web site
Match report by Ian Pluck
After the disappointment of Tuesday night’s defeat at Berkhamsted, Ben Williams made two changes to the starting line-up. Jack Hopwood returned in goal, with Jamie Rudd recovering from a slight knock to replace Max Hercules, who himself is nursing a minor injury. Dave O’Connor recovered from a back strain which forced him off on Tuesday evening, but his replacement that evening, Liam McCrohan suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury, so was absent today.
The Ducks returned to a happy hunting ground, having secured their biggest win of the season last year, with a 6-0 win. Playing on the 3-G surface which they thrive on, the Ducks started well. A diagonal ball found Jamie Rudd wide on the left, who cut inside Josh Webb but his shot was straight at keeper Paul Hathaway.
In the 15th minute, Rudd did so much better; another diagonal, this time from Ollie Hogg, sailed over Webb’s head, allowing Rudd to take a touch and despatch the ball calmly past Hathaway to open the scoring. 1-0 Aylesbury.
The half settled down into somewhat of a midfield battle, with Hogg and Mark Riddick controlling affairs, denying the home side space on the ball. Just before the half hour, Sonny French slid the ball between the centre backs towards Rudd, but this time he lacked composure and skied his shot high and wide.
Just two minutes later and the home side were back in the game. A badly misjudged back pass by Harry Jones was picked up by the unmarked Daniel Dubidat, who slid the ball past Hopwood to score for the second successive game. 1-1
The striker had the chance to double his tally three minutes later; a ball down the right touchline found Gio Dainty, who crossed into the 6-yard box, but the effort was wide of the far post.
Five minutes later and the Ducks regained the lead. A corner from Ollie Hogg was half cleared but played back towards the edge of the penalty area, where the unlikely figure of Dave O’Connor found himself with a yard of space and smashed a half volley into the far corner of the net. 2-1 Aylesbury
Buoyed by the goal, the Ducks went on the attack, with French going close with a shot from 25 yards which cleared the crossbar. The ball was played forward by the home side, with Jones adjudged to have fouled Dubidat on the right side of the defence. Taylor Carter-Byrne fired a shot which cannoned off the wall and fell to Jake Bewley. He picked out a peach of a pass over the defence, which Rudd ran onto and calmly rounded Hathaway to score his second and his team’s third goal. 3-1 Aylesbury.
As half time approached the home side had a great opportunity to get back into the game. O’Connor was caught in possession just outside the penalty area by Dainty. He advanced and shot, but Hopwood saved with his feet; the ball was returned into the penalty area, where Hogg headed clear, but only as far as Dainty whose shot was deflected just wide of the goal for a corner.
Half-time: Coleshill 1-3 Aylesbury
Starting the second half with the wind and rain in their faces, the Ducks at times struggled to get their short passing game going, quite often finding themselves pressed on the ball by an eager home team, and resorting to a long ball out, which left Ty Deacon isolated up front.
Within 4 minutes of the restart, a long ball over the head of Jack Wood was collected by Dubidat, but O’Connor recovered well to deflect his shot wide for a corner. Five minutes later Dubidat found strike partner Kai Tonge, who spread the ball wide to Webb; his cross was met first time by Kieron Hinchley who shot was well saved by Hopwood.
The Ducks were struggling to create any real chances at this stage of the game and it was the home side who had most of the opportunities. Another cross by Webb found Dubidat on the edge of the penalty area on 70 minutes, but his shot was disappointingly high and didn’t trouble Hopwood. Three minutes later, Rudd was penalised for a foul 25 yards from goal on the right. The free kick was taken by Webb, who found home skipper Joseph Halsall unmarked at the far post, but his header was just over the crossbar.
On 83 minutes, the referee awarded the first yellow card of the match after Jones slid in late on Carter-Byrne just outside the penalty area. Webb took a training ground free kick to the edge of the penalty area, but substitute Sam McLintock saw his shot deflected away for a corner.
Two minutes from the end, Anthony Ball, on as a substitute earlier in the half for Sonny French, eased the Ducks nerves by scoring the fourth goal. He won the ball wide on the right and advanced towards the corner of the penalty area and curled a shot beyond the diving Hathaway into the far corner of the net. 4-1 Aylesbury
Although that was the end of the goalmouth action, there was a flashpoint on halfway as Wood was taken out by a very late and reckless challenge by Carter-Byrne; the defender lucky to be shown just a yellow card when many in the crowd considered a red to be more appropriate. Fortunately, after prolonged treatment, Wood was back to his feet and able to resume.
So, another good win on a 3G pitch and 4 wins out of 5 in the league for the Ducks, taking them to the top of the league for the first time since September 2012. Next up is a tricky FA Trophy clash at home to Isthmian League North team Tilbury, who, by coincidence also sit top of their league. It would be good to see a large home following to support the team in what is going to be a key match for the club.
