But the game was marred when sub Scott Rogers sustained a broken leg.although the threadbare squad took a huge knock with substitute Scott Rogers leaving the ground with a broken leg mid way through the second half.

Coleshill took the lead with an effort goalkeeper Ian Deakincouldn’t have prevented when skipper Daniel Tymon managed to rifle the ball low through the crowded penalty area.

The Lions should have been on level terms on 24 minutes when Piliero’s corner kick was nodded just over the bar from less than a yard by Ross Henshaw.

But two minutes later it was all square when Kieran Wells headed home after being picked out by Gary Ricketts.

Coleshill went ahead again on 31 minutes when Matthew Brown managed to control the ball and beat both Hawes and Henshaw before he beat Deakin.

Just on the stroke of half time, Heanor could have again levelled the scores when a Debrouwer free kick deflected away for a fruitless corner.

Heanor started the second half well and levelled four minutes after the restart when Ricketts headed home.

On 53 minutes Kieran Wells was replaced by Scott Rogers, Courey Grantham moving into the forward line out of the midfield berth he had been occupying.

The visitors went ahead again shortly after when midfielder Craig Milligan collected the ball after a hesitant Heanor defence didn’t close him down, he side stepped and hit a shot into the back of the net.

Gary Ricketts seemed to be on a one man mission to keep Heanor in the FA Vase as he levelled with another header.

Shortly after we saw in incident that nobody inside the ground will want to remember as Scott Rogers suffered a broken leg following a rash challenge from Coleshill’s Luke Edwards.

The instant response was to care for the injured player, involving a 25 minute stoppage as the paramedics attended then took Rogers from the field to go to Derby hospital.

When the referee restarted the match, Edwards received his marching orders and Ollie Naylor came on to replace Rogers, making his first team debut at just 17.

With emotions running high in the ground it would always be one goal to break hearts. That goal came from Courey Grantham, who had been back to his best throughout the match.

Piliero completed his hat-trick of assists with a super cross to Grantham on 85 minutes who hit a flying volley into the top corner.

Heanor: Deakin, Marriott, Shaw, Hawes, Henshaw (Gregory 69), Strzyzewski, Wells (Rogers 53, Naylor 78), Piliero, Ricketts, Grantham, Debrouwer.

Man of the match: Paulo Piliero.
