AFCW 1 Coleshill Town 4

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.


AFC Wulfrunians line up: Bostock, Sedgemore, Howells (Aulak 45), Palmer, Ray, Waterhouse, McDonald, Ganderton (Ayettey 45), Brady, Webb, Jevons.
