[12 DEC 98] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Nuneaton Borough (2) 2
Crawley Town (1) 1
[DR MARTEN'S PREMIER LEAGUE]

Borough showed their quality by accounting for another of the title chasing sides trying to topple them off the top spot.

Nuneaton's lead at the top is now thirteen points and no one seems able to stop them running away with the championship.

Goals from Ian Muir and Barry Williams set them on the way, but the loss of Williams with a head injury shortly before half time altered the course of events and by the end they were pleased to hear the last whistle.

Muir gave them a fourth minute lead from the penalty spot after Shaun Wray was felled by Ian Payne.

Eleven minutes later Williams was perfectly placed to head in Steve Prindiville's free kick and victory looked a comfortable conclusion.

But the scorer was taken off with a head injury and Andy Taylor reduced the arrears in the last seconds of the first half.

The visitors went close on a couple of occasions in the second period but Borough showed their defensive qualities to hang on to claim the three points.

Nuneaton Borough: Williams R., Everitt, Prindiville, Simpson, Williams B., Angus, Wray, O'Connor, Thomas, Muir, Gardner.
