[05 MAR 99] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Nuneaton v Bromsgrove Rangers - Preview

Nuneaton Borough manager Brendan Phillips hopes his side will be jolted out of any signs of complacency by last weekend’s defeat at Merthyr Tydfil.

All their main rivals won while Borough were losing in South Wales and their points margin at the top of the league was reduced from eighteen to fifteen in ninety minutes of football.

Phillips said:

"It was disappointing. We did not play as well as we have been. The pitch conditions were very heavy after a lot of rain and Merthyr have just undergone a change of manager and a change of ownership.

"Their players were up for it and we did not start well. It took us too long to get into the match and we got back into it too late to force a result."

Borough hope to make amends and to reassert their superiority over the other premier division sides by beating Bromsgrove Rovers at the Manor Park ground tomorrow.

They despatched Rovers by 4-0 in the away fixture but they go into this game with injury and illness concerns centred on two of their strikers.

Joey O’Connor has had influenza and Anton Thomas collected a groin strain at Merthyr. But Dave Crowley is back after suspension.
