"Best foot forward" from Coalville's Alex Troke ...
You might think that a 3-0 home win sounds comfy ... but I would disagree (if only slightly !) at this encounter up at Hurst Cross. Coalville are not a bad team - looked lively up front (but couldn't finish) and fairly well-drilled at the back (but they leaked 3 goals). "Funny old game innit ???". I just loved Ashton's opener - the way Jack Dyche just took out two defenders with one twist to give himself the space to blast home. I've not seen much of the Robins this season - but I've heard all about Lee Gaskell and free kicks - and he didn't let anyone down today ! Goal three was a reward for perseverance - but at a price (i.e. injury). All in all a good performance from the home side ... and not a bad performance from the Ravens ... pics from game (I edged down towards the Coalville end as @ashtonsnapper was in residence !!!) at ..
