HEDNESFORD and Coalville were forced to set­tle for a draw af­ter a late goal saw the Pit­men earn man­ager Rob Smith a point on his 300th game in-charge.

The game got off to a lively start with Hednesford just about clear­ing their lines in the sec­ond minute be­fore they broke and James Lawrie saw his shot turned over the cross­bar by Matthew Co­ton.

In the 41st minute Jer­maine Hol­lis broke into the Hednesford penalty area but his first-time ef­fort flashed wide.

Hednesford had a let-off in the 58th minute when Sam Oji’s header back was short and al­though Hol­lis was able to lift his shot over James Wren his ef­fort drifted wide.

It would be the vis­i­tors who would strike first in the 76th minute when a cross into the Hednesford box was flicked on by Nathan Wat­son into the far corner of the net.

Ten min­utes from time Hednesford shot stop­per Wren made two smart saves to deny Hol­lis and then Wat­son.

As the game en­tered the first minute of stop­page time the Pit­men would draw them­selves level as Jor­dan Gra­ham found Lawrie with the mid­fielder fir­ing in a low shot. STAR MAN: Jer­maine Hol­lis (Coalville) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
