Nuneaton Town 1 Worcester City 1

A1 Gas Force Arena… Saturday February 20th… 3pm

Attendance: 825

Ticket: £13 – Programme: £3

My first trip to Nuneaton in a couple of months, and a very welcome break from Newcastle United…

Nuneaton’s form hasn’t been great recently and coupled with teams around them winning games in hand, they’ve dropped from top of the league to the fringes of the plays-offs. As a result, today’s game was really a ‘must win’…

Pre-Match: Worcester City Warming Up…

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way. Neither side really had a shot on target for much of the match before Nuneaton took an unexpected lead late on. It didn’t last for long though, as Worcester equalised in the 90th minute, taking a point from a game that neither side really deserved to win…

It was a result that keeps Nuneaton in fifth place in Conference North, the final play-off place…

Second Half Action: Nuneaton Press…

I considered the trip to Corby next Saturday but decided against it. For such a sort journey it involves rather a lot of trains and a great deal of standing on platforms. Not really something that I want to be doing in February…

I’m not a fan of free Saturdays though, so following a quick look on the BBC website I managed to find myself a game. I’m off to the Hawthorns to watch West Brom play Crystal Palace, didn’t get there with Newcastle this season and last season’s trip was rather rushed so it’s an ideal opportunity to have another look…
