Lait at the double as Lambs are spot on

FT: Coleshill Town 2    2 Tamworth

02 December 2019

Tamowrth travelled to the 3G surface of Pack Meadow for the 2nd Round Birmingham Senior Cup tie and left it late to secure passage through to the next round.

A seventh minnute freekick from Molesworth deflected wickedly past Walton in the Tamworth goal to give the home side the lead (0-1, 7 mins) but Tamworth responded through Lait who fired hom e the rebound from his own shot off the far post, into the far bottom right corner to level the tie (1-1, 20 mins)
Kaziboni forced Hathaway into a save on 29 and there were should for a penalty when the ball bounced up to the hand of former Tamworth youth player Sinclair but nothing was given.
In the final action of a largely relaxed but purposeful first half Kaziboni again forced Hathaway into a save.

HT: Coleshill Town 1    1 Tamworth

In the first minute of the second period Molesworth fired the ball into the box  and Zazi somehow failed to connect to it at the far post.
Lait saw his goalbound effort batted away by Hathaway on 53 but a wonder strike from Sandhu two minutes later restored Coleshill's lead. He spotted Walton off his line and shot home over the top of the keeper into the back of the net from fully 35 yards (1-2, 55 mins)
Tamworth made all their changes over the next 25 minutes but couldn't find a way through, and there was a prolonged stoppage following a tackle in the centre of the park.
Keeper Hathaway nearly scored on 83 with a long range strike which Walton had to tip over his bar, and just when it looked like Tamworth would be heading out of the competition A superb flowing move starting at the back resulted in the Lait nipping the ball past Hathaway for a late late equaliser. (2-2, 92 mins).
Play continued almost as far as 100 minutes before the referee blew time on normal play and with no extra time, penalties were required to find a winner.

Beswick scored (1-0) / Molesworth scored (1-1)
Rowe-Turner scored (2-1) / Zazi fired wide (2-1)
Hoenes scored (3-1) / Hathaway scored (3-2)
