Jarvis was dismissed, presumably for something he said, after seeing a late headed ‘goal’ disallowed.

It was a first draw of the season for Sports who remain third, four points behind second-placed Coalville, but with two games in hand. Coalville drew 1-1 at play-off rivals Alvechurch last night.

Sports have a tough game at fourth placed Rushall Olympic on Saturday (January 8). Rushall would move above Sports with a win.
