[07 NOV 98] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Nuneaton Borough (0) 1
Boston United (1) 1
[DR MARTENS PREMIER DIVISION]

Borough left it late to rescue their unbeaten home record and Manager Brendan Phillips will not be happy that two points were let slip against the mid-table side.

With championship chasing Gresley Rovers and Hastings United getting beaten it was a glorious chance for Borough to extend their lead at the top of the league.

But while they had the better of the play they could not translate their superiority into goals and the Boston goalkeeper had few moments of anxiety.

An appalling defensive mix up let in Boston for a 31st minute goal. Barry Williams and his goalkeeper Rob Wood made a hash of a clearance and Andrew Stanhope was left with an easy lob into the empty net.

Ian Muir should have scored in the second half but he shot against the goalkeeper after he was played clean through and it was left to Williams to get the equaliser with eight minutes to play.

Steve Prindiville took a corner kick and Williams supplied the scoring header.

Nuneaton Borough: Wood, Everitt, Prindiville, Simpson, Crowley, Angus, Wray, Williams, Landon, Muir, Gardner.
