The Ducks take it to seven unbeaten
Coalville will rue their chances missed in the first half as Shaw Lane continued their unbeaten run.
The Ducks are now seven unbeaten as they keep pushing for a play-off place.
But it was the Ravens who had the better of the play and chances in the first 45 Minutes.
A double save by Ed Wilczynski on 21 minutes kept the home side level.
A curling shot by Cleveland Taylor stung the keeper’s chest while the follow up was held from Nathan Watson’s miscued shot.
Daniel Creaney had an effort palmed away for a corner three minutes later by the Polish keeper.
Another effort, on 39 minutes, was saved by Wilczynski following a long range effort by Kyle Dixon.
After the break it was a different story and it didn’t take long for the home side to find the back of the net.
Paul Clayton tucked home from five yards after an Alex Byrne cross from the left was deflected in front of the target man a minute after the restart.
Top-scorer Damian Reeves made it two nil on 54 minutes with a header inches out.
A corner by Byrne was flicked on by James Pollard over keeper Elliott Taylor and Reeves couldn’t miss.
Coalville still had chances and Watson smashed an effort onto the crossbar from a free-kick on 68 minutes.
The Ducks could have put the game to bed but were also denied by the crossbar.
Reeves headed against the frame from a Byrne cross on 78 minutes and then, heading into added time Byrne did the same with his shot from the left side of the box.
Coalville eventually became frustrated and a poor challenge on Byrne by Kyle Dixon a minute later saw the midfielder shown a straight red.
