Earlswood Town travelled to Coventry on Saturday knowing that Copsewood would be a hard place to get a result at especially as they had won their last three league games.
The home team probably shaded the first half as Earlswood, lacking match practise, took some time to settle down and Earls keeper Richard Taylor was first in action saving well from Copsewoods Petajon Gordon.
But Earls came more into the game after 15 minutes with Nicky Briggs and Dale Edwards setting up a number of chances with their crosses but never having anyone on hand to finish.
But Copsewood took the lead in 32nd minute when Ross Winbush picked up a loose ball just inside the Earlswood penalty area and sent in a hard low shot past the outstretched hands of Earl’s keeper Taylor.
Earls came out in the second half and were dominant as they pushed the Copsewood defenders back on the defensive as they went out for the equaliser. But Coventry managed to hold Earl’s eager forwards at bay until the 90th minute when Earls substitute Sammy Hawker drilled a shot through the crowded Coventry penalty area.
On Saturday Earls play Bolehall Swifts at home, kick off 3pm.
