Gary Charles got off to a positive start in his first game, as the newly named boss saw his side take a point in their match away at Alfreton.

Gary was only confirmed as boss until the end of the season on Thursday but he did not waste any time as he saw his new team come back from 1-0 down to earn a point in Derbyshire.
And it could have been even better than that. Charles named an unchanged team for the game and his team repaid him for the show of faith with a bright start.
We were unable to make anything happen clear cut chance wise, but Nuneaton were giving a strong account of themselves.
It was a surprise then when the home side went into the break in the lead after grabbing a goal just before half time.
It was scored by Brendon Daniels as he put the finishing touches on a move involving Craig Westcarr.
Gary Charles earned his money during the half time break as he did not let heads drop during the 15 minute interval.
Nuneaton came out buoyed in the second half and dominated proceedings.
Once again they were unable to turn that into anything clear-but but they did continue to test Viktor Johannson in the home goal.
The keeper denied Daniel Nti with one effort but he could not do so again with 10 minutes to go as the Nuneaton striker headed home a long throw from Niall Heaton to draw the sides level.
Nti had a great chance in the last minute to make it a first game to remember for Charles, but it was not to be as he headed over when well placed.
