[15 SEP 98] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Nuneaton Borough (1) 4
Kings Lynn (0) 0
[DR MARTENS PREMIER DIVISION]

Borough showed their competitive spirit by wiping out the memory of the first defeat of the season at Gloucester City, with the clinical destruction of Kings Lynn.

Nuneaton made it seven victories from eight matches in glorious style before another crowd in excess of 1,500 and the strikers Malcolm Christie and Anton Thomas were again among the goals.

There was no sign that Borough might let the season start to drift after the stunning defeat at Gloucester. They were at their best against the team they had already scored four goals against in the away match early in the season.

Manager Brendan Phillips said:

"This was an exceptional display. We needed a positive result to regain some of the lost confidence and at times we looked brilliant. Once again we showed our attacking qualities, but I thought we were also superb in defence."

It needed just sixteen minutes for Borough to get the breakthrough. Midfielder Simpson found Thomas and he fed the teenager Christie who cheekily lobbed over the goalkeeper into the net.

From then on Borough swarmed all over their opponents and could have scored several more goals before half-time.

As it turned out they virtually settled the match in a two goals in four minutes spell immediately after the interval. Christie and Shaun Wray combined to set up Thomas for the second goal in the 47th minute and four minutes later Thomas supplied the cross for Simpson to score with a diving header.

Steve Prindiville then shot against the crossbar as Borough went into cruise mode but with nine minutes left Statham glanced a centre into the net from the left.
