Nuneaton Town 1 York City 0
Ashley Chambers nets winner in the 75th minute to push Boro' in to the top half of the table.
Gary Charles continued his impressive start to his management career with another victory. A well-deserved 1-0 win at the LDJ Solicitors Stadium against a York City side, that are pushing for a playoff place, perhaps belies the measure of the performance as Nuneaton Town gave one of their best performances of the season. Top-scorer Ashley Chambers scored the only goal of the game, his 19th in the league this season, on a night where Boro' created enough chances to cruise to victory.
The first talking point of the match came in the 9th minute when midfielder Tom Elliott's shot was well saved by York's Adam Bartlett. Nuneaton's players appealed that the ball had crossed the line, however, Referee Dean Watson disagreed and waved away their appeals.
Daniel Parslow might consider himself lucky to have only received a booking for his lunge on George Green on the half-way line. Moments later the combative midfielder was felled again, this time inside the box, but once again, Boro's pleas fell on deaf ears as Watson didn't agree with their penalty appeals.
Daniel Nti, who scored the winner against Southport at the weekend, was the end of a beautiful Elliott through-ball, but steered his shot narrowly wide. The second half continued with a similar pattern to the first, James Ferry's effort hit the upright and Elliott's goal-bound shot was deflected for a corner.
The breakthrough finally came in the 75th minute, Chambers raced in to the box rounding Bartlett, who diverted him away from goal, turned and blasted in to the net. The Minstermen will probably be a little disappointed with their response as Nuneaton easily dealt with their threat andlooked more likely to add another than concede an equaliser.
Kelvin Langmead was once again instrumental at the back, his partnership with Ryan Johnson looks formidable and the full back pairing of Luther Wildin and Niall Heaton rounds out a backline that has served Boro' well this season. A second successive cleansheet means that Nuneaton now boast the sixth best defensive record in the division.
