The red hot Capel Plough, riding a seven-match winning run, missed the chance to move to the top of the SIL Senior Division after they were beaten 4-2 at home by a lively Coplestonians.

The home side made the better start when Sean Webb slotted home a corner from Gunn with three minutes played.

However the visitors fought back to equalise five minutes later when Will Davies headed in a free kick from Jordan Godbold.

Godbold put the visitors in front just before the break, shooting low into the corner after a defensive error.

Houchill then saved with his feet from Webb before Perrie Soanes scored the visitors’ third from a tight angle after 65 minutes.
