FOOTBALL - Redditch United suffer defeats against Coalville and Royston

REDDITCH UNITED remain outside of the relegation zone on goal difference despite suffering consecutive defeats to Coalville and Royston Town respectively.


The Reds were beaten 2-0 by Coalville Town last weekend as goals either side of half-time from Luke Shaw and Billy Kee condemned Matt Clarke’s side to defeat.


Coalville had Steve Towers sent off on the hour mark after he brought down Dan Sweeney when the Redditch man was through on goal.


However, despite having a man advantage, Redditch were unable to claw back the deficit against a Coalville side who sit second in the table.


And the Reds then threw away a two-nil lead against Royston to lose 3-2 at the Trico Stadium on Monday night.


Goals from Charlie Williams on 18 minutes and Lewis Hudson on 46 minutes had Redditch in command and on their way to a first home win in the league since September.


However, Royston produced a stunning second-half comeback as Adam Murray, Brandon Adams and Isaac Galliford all struck to condemn Redditch to another defeat.


The game turned on 55 minutes when Redditch goalscorer Hudson was sent off for a late challenge moments after Murray had halved the deficit.


And those results leave Redditch in 18th place in the Southern League Premier Central table, outside of the bottom three on goal difference.


The Reds are in action again on Thursday, December 23 when they host Stourport Swifts in the quarter-finals of the Worcestershire Senior Cup.


And the club has offered supporters FREE ENTRY to the cup clash after they collaborated with Stourport and the Worcestershire FA to deliver a festive treat to the non-league football community.


Redditch’s clash with Stourport on Thursday, December 23 kicks-off at 7.45pm at the Trico Stadium.
