[19 DEC 98] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Cambridge City (0) 1
Nuneaton Borough (1) 1
[DR MARTEN'S PREMIER LEAGUE]

Borough missed a great opportunity to increase their massive lead at the top of the division when they missed a penalty kick in injury time.

The runaway leaders were forced to settle for a draw when most of their rivals for the championship were defeated.

Nuneaton, who face a tough group of holiday matches, had the perfect start when they took the lead after just seven minutes. Joey O’Connor skipped past two tackles and crossed the ball for Coventry City youngster Gavin O’Toole to slot the ball home.

Borough threatened to run up a big score but Cambridge switched around their playing pattern and the game became more even. They equalised in the 63rd minute from the penalty spot when Steve Prindiville was forced to concede a corner kick from which Terry Angus handled the ball. Andy Kiwomya converted the spot kick.

But Nuneaton thought they had reclaimed the points in the fourth minute injury time when O’Connor was fouled in the penalty area, but Nicky Rust dived to his left to save Ian Muir’s penalty.
