[09 JAN 1999] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Ilkeston Town 0
Nuneaton Borough (1) 1
[DR MARTENS PREMIER DIVISION]

No club surely can have had such a commanding lead at the top of the Dr Marten’s League with so many games still to play.

Borough now are nineteen points ahead of their nearest rivals and showing no sign of taking their foot off the accelerator.

They were so much in control in this match against fifth placed Ilkeston that their goalkeeper Richard Williams did not have to make a save.

At the other end of the pitch Borough caused plenty of problems for the full stretch home defence and the biggest surprise was that they did not score more goals. Anton Thomas should have been on the scoresheet but he fluffed the easiest chance of the match.

Fortunately for Ilkeston their goalkeeper Chris Marples was at the top of his game but he had no chance in the 35th minute when Borough’s defender Terry Angus rocketed a fierce header into the net.

The result stretched Borough’s lead at the top with their main rivals unable to match their consistency and now the championship is almost a foregone conclusion.
