Nuneaton Town 1-1 Chorley
Boro claim point on home turf...
Nuneaton Town came from behind to claim a valuable point at home to Chorley.
The draw sees Boro extend their unbeaten run to seven matches, following back-to-back away victories at Spennymoor and Stockport.
Dino Maamria’s side drew level through Ashley Chambers after Josh Wilson struck for the visitors before the break.
The game failed to get going in the opening stages as both teams acclimatised to the blustery conditions at the LDJ Solicitors Stadium.
When opportunities did arise for Boro both Tom Elliott and George Green saw efforts well blocked, whilst at the other end Chorley’s Alex Newby was well denied by Ross Etheridge in the Nuneaton goal.
The home side came close to opening the scoring when Green sent a free-kick whistling narrowly wide of the post.
But it was unfortunately the visitors who drew first blood just five minutes before the break. A neat move was converted by number nine Wilson as he headed home from close range.
As with the first, the second period failed to instantly ignite and it was not until the 70th minute that there was any goalmouth action.
On both occasions the opportunities presented themselves to centre-back Kennedy Digie, but he was twice unable to keep his headed efforts under the crossbar.
However as it appeared Boro may be facing their first defeat in six they struck an equaliser.
Daniel Nti seemed set to score but his header was well saved, yet fortunately Chambers was on hand to put the loose ball home and extend Boro’s impressive unbeaten run.
The result unfortunately sees Boro’s winning run come to an end but the team return to action on Tuesday night as they travel to AFC Telford United.
