COVENTRY Alvis could well spend this week repairing their goalposts after they were repeatedly struck by Studley during their 2-2 draw in Midland League One.

Studley struck the woodwork on no less than five occasions and manager Vaughan Pearshouse said: "I just couldn't believe it. Some of the shots were striking the inside of the post and still staying out."

But Pearshouse admitted to his side making a poor start against bottom of the table Alvis and soon found themselves 2-0 down courtesy of a couple of Mike Healey goals.

Andy Nicol clawed a goal back for Studley from the penalty spot before half time.

Pearshouse added: "The second half was just one way traffic. We managed to equalise through Chris Cowley but it was extremely disappointing as we would have expected to have got more".

Studley were due to visit Littleton on Wednesday night, weather permitting, before travelling to Boldmere-based Paget Rangers on Saturday when Pearshouse hopes to add former Hinckley and Black Country Rangers marksman Jake Healy to his squad as a replacement for recent signing Billy Garvey who has opted for a return to former side Redditch Borough.
