finishing line in sight, leaders Nuneaton Boroughs margin above the chasing pack has
been trimmed, so they will not want to let anything slip at Salisbury tomorrow.
Second placed Gloucester City who have had games in hand on the Borough, won on Monday
night, to cut the margin to twelve points. It is still a massive lead for Nuneaton, but
two weeks ago they led the league by eighteen points and manager Brendan Phillips will be
anxious that it is not pruned further.
Nuneaton have nine games left to complete their fixture list and among the visitors to
their Manor Ground will be Gloucester in early April.
Phillips would prefer it if that result were not crucial. Borough have led the pack
magnificently throughout the season and it would be a huge disappointment if promotion to
The Conference were denied them.
The manager said:
"Six or seven weeks ago they did a smash and grab on us and beat us 1-0 on our
pitch. I dont want to come back with anything less than three points from
Borough have a full squad apart from goalkeeper Richard Williams who is serving the
last game of a three game suspension.
