Six goal 'thriller' at The Lamb

FT: Tamworth 3    3 Coalville Town

28 July 2007

Lambs' boss Gary Mills was given plenty to think about after his squad failed to score or concede in the first half against Coalville Town but then bagged three and leaked three goals in the second half.

Former Lamb Michael Swan featured in attack for Coalville while Dale Belford took his place between the posts and after just 59 seconds, when Michael Briscoe was adjudged to have pulled down Russell in the area, Man of the Match Jose Veiga stopped the penalty kick from Swan. Veiga showed why, despite his two-match ban at the start of the season, he is likely to be Gary Mills’ first choice with a number of other great stops throughout the first 45 which should really have seen the visitors be in front at the break.

Mills made nine substitutions at half time and the second half side looked a lot livelier coming forward, but conceded three poor goals as well.
Anthony Robinson and Tony Thorpe combined to force Dale Belford into committing himself a number of times until in the 66th minute Matt Williams struck home from the penalty spot following a push on Thorpe.
Son Courtney replaced dad Dale in the visitors' goal and after Swan had equalised from distance on 73, Robinson restored Tamworth’s lead with a cool finish from 12 yards a minute later.
However, Saunders burst through the Lambs' midfield on 79 and levelled the scores once again.
Four minutes later Thorpe made it 3-2 with a well turned shot from 6 yards after Coalville failed to deal with the Tamworth threat, but The Ravens made a mockery of their defensive counterparts from a corner less than 60 seconds later allowing Hollis far too long in front of goal to head home from close range.
In the dying seconds Adie Smith could have settled the friendly but hit the side netting from a tight angle.

First half:
Veiga, Lyttle, Ullathorne, Briscoe, Taggart, Storer, Sheridan, Smith, Heggs, Jackson, Sheldon

Second half:
Clarke (Dave), Tuohy, Donaghey, Mills, Waldrum, Langdon, Williams, Briscoe, Smith, Robinson, Thorpe.
