A Danny Gordon goal direct from a corner saw Carlton Town draw 1-1 with play-off bound Coalville Town in an entertaining draw at Stoke Lane.

The equaliser was no more than the Millers deserved as they more than matched their opponents throughout.

In a first half of few chances Carlton’s only effort on goal saw Sean Bowles comfortably save from Josh Rae, whilst the Ravens went closest when Calum Woodward’s fierce shot was well-held by Jack Steggles.

Coalville took the lead on 49 minutes when Nathan Watson headed home Aaron Hooton’s pinpoint cross.

Carlton hit back and after Anthony Dwyer’s effort went just wide, Gordon’s corner flew past Bowles after Liam Walshe tried to head away.

The Millers poured forward looking for a winner and almost got it on 82 minutes when a 25-yard Gordon free kick crashed against the crossbar, but Coalville were able to hold on to their point.
