Lambs un­done by Tom’s dou­ble

The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Matt Pan­ter

TWO goals from Tom McGlinchey helped Coalville to a de­served win at Tam­worth.

Gregg Smith’s penalty gave the lack­lus­tre Lambs hope in the lat­ter stages be­fore Tim Ber­ridge killed the game off in stop­page time.

The Ravens started well and McGlinchey fired wide while Kairo Mitchell saw a glanc­ing header saved by Jas Singh.

It was Coalville who struck first on 32 min­utes as Kyle Perry and Mitchell fash­ioned a chance for McGlinchey who placed his shot into the bot­tom cor­ner.

Coalville dou­bled their lead just two min­utes into the sec­ond half as McGlinchey curled the ball home from 18 yards.

Perry should have put the game to bed on 60 min­utes but struck the post from close range af­ter good work from Mitchell.

Tam­worth were nearly handed a life­line on 75 min­utes as Soloha failed to hold John­son’s cross and the ball fell for David Park­house who struck the post.

Soloha tipped a fine strike from Aman Verma over the bar be­fore the Lambs pulled one back through Smith’s spot-kick.

Ber­ridge was then set free and had the sim­ple task of slot­ting into an empty net.
