Moor Green maintained their lead at the top of the Midland Combination with a convincing home win on Tuesday night. And for Moors it was a welcome return to winning form after last Saturday's disappointing draw. Moors are now three points clear at the top of the Midland Combination's First Division table with one game in hand over second placed Bridgnorth. But the Moor Green team showed signs of nervousness in the first half and it took a goal from Chris Cotton seconds before the interval to settle them down. Cotton scored the all important first goal after a brilliant solo run and Coleshill were left struggling. Moors relaxed after the interval and top scorer Mark Holloway made it 2-0 in the 60th minute after a good pass by Cotton. It was Moor Green's 100th goal of the season and they looked well in control against a Coleshill side struggling to avoid relegation. Holloway added a third just five minutes from the end to take his tally to 28 in all competitions and 20 in the Combination. Braddock had made the third goal possible with a fierce drive which the Coleshill keeper failed to hold. Moors have now gone 17 league and cup matches without defeat but they know they have to continue in the winning trail to prevent Bridgnorth from retaining the championship. Coleshill did manage a consolation goal right on full time when Rick Allen scored but Moors were never really threatened and ran out comfortable winners.
