Nuneaton Town 0 Bradford Park Avenue 0

The LDJ Solicitors Stadium… Saturday January 27th… 3pm

Attendance: 513

Ticket: £14 – Programme: £2.50

After a slow start, another encouraging performance. Park Avenue started well, but as the first half progressed Nuneaton began to get on top….

The game followed a similar pattern in the second half, and as legs began to tire, some interesting tackles followed. This culminated in a red card for Park Avenue’s Danny Boshell. Against ten men, the pressure became a siege, but the goal just wouldn’t come…

Positive signs though…

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…

Nuneaton Town 0 Brackley Town 2

Attendance: 532

Ticket: £14 – Programme: £2.50

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…
