Early Robbins goal proves decisive
An early goal from Ryan Robbins was enough to secure leaders Coalville Town victory at struggling Romulus.
With nearest challengers Stamford drawing at Lincoln United, the Ravens now have a 13-point cushion at the top of Division One South of Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.
The visitors could have gone ahead in the second minute but Cameron Stuart had a penalty saved. They did break through three minutes later, however, Robbins heading home a Callum Woodward corner.
Coalville had chances to extend their lead with Robbins Stuart and Anthony Carney all rattling the woodwork. But they had to settle for just the one goal despite Romulus having a man sent off on the hour mark.
