Coalville Town left it until the 90th minute to secure a win against Macclesfield FC in their Second Qualifying Round FA Cup clash at the Mander Cruickshank Stadium.

A tense match saw Coalville fail to convert a penalty, after the away side had gone close a couple of times during early breakaways.

Following the break, Coalville grew more into the game, but late on the tie was looking like it would end in a stalemate and another midweek cup replay was on the cards.

Brought on as a substitute during the second-half, Tendai Chitiza had made an immediate impact, which seemed to re-energise the home side.

But it was his last minute goal, headed in at close range, that sent the home fans among the 1,070 crowd into rapture and got the party started in the Shed End.

The draw for the next round will be made on Tuesday (Sept 20),
