After a slow start, the games first goal came from prolific goal scorer Shane Benjamin on 21 minutes. Coleshill were now piling on the pressure, culminating in Dean Rathbone firing in Coleshill's second goal in the 26th minute. With Coleshill's relentless pressure, Rathbone scored a third goal struck from around 25 yards just after the half hour mark. Subs on the bench jokingly said it took a deflection. Deano was having none of that banter! The fourth goal came within a minute when Geo Dainty, with his back to goal, fired in a glorious goal. 4-0 at half time! The second half was a bit of an anti climax. Coleshill's midfield tired but never looked like conceding, but in the 90th minute Afc Wulfs pulled back a consolation goal through Brady. A good nights work from The Coalmen.

AFC Wulfrunians 1 v 4 Coleshill Town
The busiest time of year for the day job means midweek games have to be as local as possible. I am very fortunate to have a number of clubs within a short distance so it is another visit to one of the friendliest clubs in the league, AFC Wulfrunians. A bitterly cold evening with Champions League football on the TV means a lower than average gate is expected for the visit of one of the league's form teams, Coleshill Town. One look down the team sheet shows that Wulfs are short handed this evening and Coleshill have goals throughout their side and on the bench. For the first 20 minutes, the home side just about edged it without either side having a chance. That all changed in the 21st minute when a cross from the left was met perfectly by Shane Benjamin who sidefooted home from the edge of the penalty area. The complexion of the game changed immediately and Coleshill took full control. An incisive move involving Mykel Beckley and Benjamin ended with the ball played into the path of Dean Rathbone whose finish gave Jamie Bostock no chance. Two minutes later, a lay-off from Beckley found Benjamin but his shot was off target. Coleshill’s 3rd came in the 32nd minute. Benjamin flicked the ball on from the edge of the are and Gio Dainty looped a back header over Bostock and into the net. Goal number 4 wasn’t long in coming, Rathbone with another excellent finish in the 36th minute. Wulfs made a double substitution at half-time and it had a positive impact. Kyle Brady hit a superb shot which was tipped over by Paul Hathaway. The better chances were still falling for the visitors, Dainty heading wide from a long throw in the 64th minute. Danico Johnson was off target for Coleshill before Joel Ayettey, one of Wulfs half-time subs, saw a shot saved at the other end. Johnson was again through for the visitors but Bostock got enough on it to turn it wide. Benjamin should have made it 5 in the 72nd minute when he blazed over after more good approach play from Beckley. Bostock made a fine save to thwart Beckley but the last word of the evening went to Wulfs when Kyle Brady slotted the ball home one minute into time added on. An impressive performance by Coleshill and a team no-one is going to fancy facing as the season runs to its climax. As for Wulfs, a bright start but guilty of giving away easy possession to a side that took full advantage.
A VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE
AFCW 1 Coleshill Town 4
February 23, 2016 by PaulT
AFC Wulfrunians were outclassed by Coleshill Town, as they fell to a comprehensive 4-1 defeat to their high-flying visitors. Although Wulfs were much improved in the second half, Coleshill’s first half dominance meant the result was secured by half time.
The visitors took the lead after 21 minutes; Giovani Dainty broke on the left hand side and cut the ball back to Shane Benjamin, who fired his effort low into the corner.
Their lead was doubled five minutes later, as this time Benjamin turned provider. He squared the ball to Dean Rathbone who took it past one before placing his shot past Jamie Bostock.
Benjamin provided another assist as Coleshill added a third. He flicked a floated cross onto Dainty who added a goal of his own as he looped a header over the head of Bostock.
A fourth was added just before half time, as Rathbone added his second of the game. Rob Evans’ cross from the right evaded everybody and found the midfielder at the back post, and he made no mistake as he curled it in.
Benjamin had the chance to add his second early on in the second half as Mykel Beckley squared to him, but he fired wide in front of an empty net.
Wulfs’ first chance came late on in the second half. Jake Webb’s mishit shot found its way to Kyle Brady at the back post, but his first time effort flew high over the bar.
Brady added a consolation goal in the dying moments as he latched onto a good ball by Joel Ayettey and fired past the ‘keeper, but it was already too late for the hosts.
Wulfs will look to bounce back straight away as they travel to Dunkirk on Saturday, in search of just their second win of 2016.
