[18 OCT 98] NUNEATON BOROUGH MATCH SUMMARY
Bromsgrove Rovers (0) 0
Nuneaton Borough (2) 4
[DR MARTENS PREMIER DIVISION]

Borough are now five points clear at the top of the Dr Martens Premier Division as they proved there is life after Malcolm Christie.

The young striker has joined Derby County for a fee that could reach 130,000 but Brendan Phillips men carried on with their promotion push in fine style.

Borough dominated their Midlands rivals from first to last, scoring two goals in each half.

They could have taken the lead as early as the fourth minute when veteran striker Ian Muir hit the bar from 23 yards and saw Dave Crowley hit the rebound wide.

Not that they had to wait for long. Six minutes later Kevin Wilkin managed to latch on to a deft flick from Muir and beat Darren Alden at the near post.

Barry Williams probably made sure of the points in the 16th minute when Shaun Wray teed him up with a cross from the right after he had won possession and beaten a defender.

Williams could have grabbed another when a flowing move involving more than half the team, ended with his header striking the bar before being cleared.

Rovers did have a good spell before the interval when Dean Bennett’s hopeful lob flew wide.

Borough had to withstand more pressure just after the break but regained the initiative on the hour when Wilkin was put through again by Muir and raced away to beat Darren Alden with a low shot which rolled into the corner.

The icing on the cake was a goal for Richard Landon, on loan from Mansfield. The former Bedworth striker headed home from close range.
