Tuesday 12th April, 2016;

Boro were held to a goalless draw for the second successive home game as they finished 0-0 against Harrogate Town.

After the free-flowing football of Saturday it was back down to earth with a bump for the Boro boys against a Town team who are looking good for a top five finish themselves.

True, the pressure was on both teams – and it showed – as neither was able to put together any real momentum or breakdown the opposition defence with any regularity.

Nuneaton did try, especially early on, as Vamara Sanogo and Elliott Whitehouse both sent shots flying towards Peter Crook, neither caused the keeper any trouble though.

Those efforts were not the start of a half to remember, though, as Harrogate covered any defensive holes that may have been there, and the Boro remained resolute.

The match was turning into a midfield battle with hopeful crosses taking the place of any well-worked attacking moves.

It was clear that both managers had asked for more in an attacking sense during the half-time break as Brendon Daniels went close for the visitors and Shane Byrne saw a fierce drive blocked on the edge of the box – both efforts coming early in the second half.

Unlike the first half, the chances continued to come after the initial flurry. Paul Clayton was guilty of missing one of the best of them as he rode a couple of challenges before stroking his effort just past the post.

Harrogate kept knocking on the door, though, and if the chance for Clayton was close, the one Tom Platt had was even closer.

The visiting number four rose highest to meet a corner from the left hand side and was only denied the opener by Cieron Keane on the line.

Boro had a penalty appeal waved away ten minutes from time when Tom Elliott went down in the box, but the referee saw nothing wrong with the challenge despite the appeals of the home fans and a number of disgruntled players.
