Giorgio Rasulo gave United the early lead in Saturday's Premier Central clash at the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium.

But Joe Doyle-Charles hit a stunning late equaliser to preserve Coalville's unbeaten record. United finished the game with only ten men following Jack Westbrook's red card for denying a goal-scoring opportunity.

Ford said: "Over the course of the 90 minutes Coalville were the better side but my players put in a great shift and worked hard to get a point. Coalville dominated us more than any other team has so far this season but we could have been better in certain parts of the pitch.

"They were a very good side so I'm happy to get something out of the game. We scored a well-worked goal and they've scored a spectacular equaliser but we gave the ball away just before that.

"They had the numerical advantage in midfield so I had to make changes in the second half.It was frustrating because I know we can do much better than that but the real disappointment comes from conceding so late in the game."
