First Round

Coalville Town 2 Ilkeston FC 1

A YOUTHFUL Ilkeston FC side were knocked out of the League Cup at the first attempt on Tuesday night as Division One South rivals Coalville emerged victorious.

Robins boss Kevin Wilson rested many of his first team regulars, giving other fringe members of the squad a run out.

Ilkeston were disappointing in the first-half and fell behind after 32 minutes when Matt Moore found the net.

An improved second-half performance was rewarded on 69 minutes with an equaliser from Tyrell Waite, but Moore struck again with ten minutes to go to seal Coalville’s passage through.
