Attendance: 51,444

Ticket: £41 – Programme: £3

Two points dropped i suppose, but at 1-0 down on the hour, we’d have settled for a draw…

An afternoon that just confirmed what we already knew. So, the second half wasn’t great, but we had more than enough chances to have been out of sight by half time, and just lacked the quality to convert them. After an awful run though, that’s one league defeat in five…

Attendance: 365

A much improved performance from Nuneaton, resulting in a well deserved win…

Boro started strongly, eventually taking the lead in the 18th minute through Jordan Nicholson. There were chances to increase that lead, but as the half progressed Harrogate improved. Their pressure told on the stroke of half time, with Tom Kennedy levelling from close range…

Pre-Match: Nuneaton Town Players Warming Up…

The second hald began scrappily, before Nuneaton regained the lead on the hour; Ashley Chambers beating the keeper in a one on one, having been put in by Nicholson. As the game progressed though, Harrogate threw more and more men forward, and when the fourth official indicated seven minutes of injury time, most feared the worst…

But Nuneaton held firm to pick up a much needed three points, and lift themselves out of the relegation places…

An awful performance, on a bitterly cold day at Liberty Way. Essentially, a case of Nuneaton’s current side losing to their former side, and manager…

An early goal from Glen Walker and a second half penalty, courtesy of James Armson, gave Brackley all three points. In truth, the margin of victory should have been far wider…
