Pre-Match Programme: Nuneaton Borough

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

With the no more pressure on already relegated Nuneaton Borough, Mark Bower’s side won’t be underestimating this weekend’s opposition.

Having defeated fellow relegation candidates, FC United of Manchester 4 – 0 less than two weeks ago, Nuneaton looked set to take a point from playoff chasing Chester last Saturday, until an injury time goal gave Chester all three points and confirmed Borough’s relegation fears.

With the pressure off, Nuneaton will be able to play freely with no concern for the result and only honour to play for, making them just as dangerous an opponent as any in the league.

Avenue’s trip to the Aggborough last weekend ended in a misleading 3-0 defeat, despite spells of good attacking football from Bradford.

After the Game, Mark Bower said:

“We should never lose that game 3 -0. You come away to Kidderminster, they’re always going to have spells of possession and keep the ball against you. But they’ve scored from a set piece. We have defend and deal with it better.”

“We missed a free header from 6 yards and a one on one with their goal keeper. And then from a simple cross in the box they’re 2-0 up”

“In the second half made a few changes to the formation and we completely dominated for 20 to 25 minutes, we had chance after chance”

“If we get the goal there you think we’re going to get something from the game. but nothing really fell for us in front of goal and we weren’t ruthless enough in either box. And when they get the third one that’s game over.”

“Credit to them they’ve been more ruthless on the day and that’s why they won the game”
