[12 MAR 99] NUNEATON BOROUGH NEWS
Nuneaton v Salisbury - Preview

With the finishing line in sight, leaders Nuneaton Borough’s 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 don’t want to come back with anything less than three points from Salisbury."

Borough have a full squad apart from goalkeeper Richard Williams who is serving the last game of a three game suspension.
