[28 NOV 98] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Nuneaton Borough (1) 4
Halesowen Town (2) 3
[DR MARTEN'S LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION]

Two goals in stoppage time enabled Nuneaton Borough to get out of jail, but this victory stretches their lead at the top of the table to a massive fourteen points.

It appears the other clubs are now competing for second place as Borough go from strength to strength. They have now gone eleven games undefeated as they power on to promotion to the Conference league.

But Halesowen came within a whisker of an upset after Barry Williams headed Nuneaton into the lead after only three minutes play from Steve Prindiville's corner kick.

Halesowen levelled it within four minutes however when Paul Birch curled in a free kick and shortly before half time Delton Francis shot them in front from Ian Reed's pass.

A penalty from Ian Muir after Phil Wood was fouled made it all-square and Halesowen were at a disadvantage when Matt Gardner was sent off for a second yellow card.

But the ten men looked right on course for an upset when Francis scored his second goal with just sixty seconds left.

Incredibly however Borough snatched it out of the fire.

Muir equalised in stoppage time and with the remaining seconds ticking away Muir combined with Rob Straw to open up Halesowen's defence for Shaun Wray to grab a last gasp winner.

Nuneaton Borough: Shoemaker; Everitt, Prindiville, Simpson, Williams, Angus, Wray, O'Connor, Thomas, Muir, Gardner. Subs: Crowley, Wilkin, Straw."
