There were three midweek fixtures in the Vanarama National League North this week, including a six pointer at the bottom end of the table as Telford United played host to Curzon Ashton. For the second time in four days The Nash raced in to a three goal lead away from home, but, they seem to have learned from their experience in Lincolnshire, where Boston United hit back for a 3-3 draw, as they held on for a 3-0 win that lifted them two places to 17th.
Brackley Town were comfortable winners at home to North Ferriby United as they beat The Villagers 3-0. With just 12 games to go, North Ferriby now sit 23 points from safety, whereas Brackley pull to within six points of top spot. In the other game Tamworth entertained Blyth at the Lamb. A 3-0 victory for the Spartans lifted them to fifth and consolidated their current position in the playoffs. Tamworth are now six games without a win, since their victory over Nuneaton on New Years Day.
The Boro' fell another place to 18th, just two points above the drop zone, but they do have a game, or two, in hand on the six teams above them, as well as three of the four teams below. Victories in those games in hand could see Nuneaton rise to 12th. The first of those games comes next Tuesday with the re-arranged trip to Stockport County, with the other the following Tuesday away to Telford United.
