Nuneaton win on the road...

Boro overcame Telford away from home by two goals to one on a bitterly cold Tuesday night.

The match went ahead following a number of pitch inspections, but Boro were unphased by what could have been a distraction as they extended their unbeaten run to eight matches.

A second half goal from Luther Wildin proved the winner after the hosts had cancelled out James Ferry’s opener before the break.

After a slow start with both sides settling on the tricky surface Boro began to threaten the Bucks goal.

Centre-half Ryan Johnson nearly swept home from a corner, before Ashley Chambers hooked an ambitious effort over from the edge of the penalty area.

John McAtee threatened for Telford soon after, but his volley although well struck was wide of the mark.

Boro seemed determined to break the deadlock, but whilst skipper Ryan Beswick whizzed a shot only narrowly wide it appeared possession would not be converted into a goal.

However on the half hour mark Boro took the lead. The ball was put into the area by Tom Elliott after a mazy run, and despite Chambers being initially denied from close range Ferry was on the spot to prod home for his first Nuneaton Goal.

Unfortunately the lead was short lived as Telford drew level eight minutes later. Wideman John McAtee was the provider as he centered for Amari Morgan-Smith to equalise.

Disappointed by being pegged back both Ferry and Chambers attempted to strike before the interval, but saw their efforts saved and roll wide respectively.

Reenergised by the half-time period Boro immediately pushed to restore their lead. Kennedy Digie hooked a tricky chance over before fellow defender Wildin went one better.

Having received possession from Beswick the full back strode down the right flank. Running at pace he cut into the area and having beaten at least three defenders wrong footed the goalkeeper with a left footed finish.

Keen to add a third and further assert their authority Chambers twice struck from distance, with his efforts on goal only just wide.

Telford made all their changes in an attempt to salvage something from the match, but this was in vein as Boro recorded their sixth victory in eight matches.
