Nuneaton Borough v Halesowen Town - Preview
[DR MARTEN'S LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION]

Nuneaton Borough’s goalkeeper Richard Williams will be glad to see the end of November.

In a painful month he has been transported from matches to hospitals in Burton-on-Trent and Manchester, but still he hopes to be fit to play in Saturday’s home league match against Halesowen Town.

The courageous keeper was stretchered off to hospital in Burton when his neck was damaged in a full blooded challenge and then on Monday he found himself in hospital in Manchester when he was injured in a collision during the F.A. Trophy replay at Hyde Town.

His manager Brendan Phillips said:

"He will be glad when December comes around. We think he will be fit to play against Halesowen, but Kevin Shoemaker is on stand by just in case."

Phillips will be urging his men to put the disappointments of the cup behind them. They lost 1-0 at Hyde in Monday's replay and he said:

"We should have done the job on Saturday when we were at home, but even in the replay we had enough chances to have won it.

"Now we have to put all that behind us and concentrate on our main priority which is to win the league."

Borough have a twelve points margin over the chasing pack and victory over Halesowen would maintain the gap.

"Halesowen are tough opponents," says Phillips. "They were big favourites at the start of the season. They are a big club with good resources, but have had a disappointing start. They sacked their manager Stewart Hall last week and replaced him with John Chambers. Their players will be anxious to impress the new man so it will not be easy.

"It is a long, hard season. We have played seventeen matches, but there are twenty-seven to go."
