Nuneaton Borough have another target in their sights. The cockahoop players are aiming to
get as close as possible to 100 goals for the season in their remaining two matches.
At the moment the total stands at 88 but they play third from bottom Rothwell Town
tomorrow and they have shown no signs of slackening the pace since they raced to the
championship with plenty to spare.
They are unbeaten since they were declared champions three weeks ago and manager
Brendan Phillips says:
"It has been surprisingly easy to keep them motivated since we won the league by
beating Atherstone United.
"Twelve goals in two matches to reach a century is a tall order, but you never
know with my side. They have risen to every challenge they have been set this
Nuneatons last match of the season is at Tamworth so the match against Rothwell
at Manor Park will be the last time Boro fans can pay tribute to their championship
winning team. A big crowd is expected to make a festival of the occasion.
Anton Thomas is fit to play for Borough and Lee Everitt returns from suspension while
Wayne Simpson serves the last match of his ban.
