[26 FEB 1999] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Nuneaton v Merthyr Tydfil - Preview

Nuneaton Borough are creeping ever closer to the date when they will mathematically be uncatchable in the race to win the Premier Divison.

Many believe they are already out of sight with a lead of 18 points over Gloucester City but manager Brendan Phillips still refuses to acknowledge the likelihood.

"We take each game as it comes and if we win most of them then we shall finish as champions," he says.

The latest club to pose a threat is Merthyr Tydfil tomorrow. The Welsh club, which achieved great things in the past, now languishes only five points above the bottom three and are expected to become the latest to be steamrollered by the Borough on their way to the title.

Nuneaton have eleven matches to play and time is fast running out for their rivals to make any dent in their lead. Phillips concedes:

"We are in the pound seats."

Borough play tomorrow without their captain Dave Crowley who is suspended for going over the limit on bookings. Goalkeeper Richard Williams also faces suspension next weekend for being sent off at Bath City.

Former Coventry City reserve player Gavin O’Toole will take Crowley’s place at Merthyr.
