Match report courtesy of Coventry Telegraph;

Nuneaton Town got their Skrill Conference Premier campaign off to a flying start with a win at Moss Rose thanks to a Louis Moult header.

The former Northampton Town striker got the only goal of the game midway through the first half when he connected with a James Armson corner and headed straight past the stranded Macclesfield goalkeeper.

Macclesfield did start the better and nearly went ahead after six minutes when Connor Jennings latched on to a cross but was denied by Boro’s Bulgarian keeper Dimitar Evtimov.

Nuneaton woke up on 22 minutes when Armson’s free kick found Andy Brown but his header was tipped over by the home keeper Rhys Taylor. It was from the resulting corner that Moult found the net.

With 37 minutes gone the Silkmen went close to grabbing an equaliser when midweek signing Danny Whitaker fired over from close range after finding some space in the box.

In the second half, Kevin Wilkin’s men nearly doubled their lead on 63 minutes when Armson put a free-kick into the box which pinged around the area before being cleared by Macclesfield’s Jennings.

Nuneaton captain Gareth Dean and Theo Streete formed a solid barrier in front of Evtimov’s goal, limiting the home side to a few half chances.

However with four minutes left on the clock, Macclesfield were presented with a glorious chance to claim an unlikely point when the Boro defence missed a corner and Scott Kay headed powerfully towards goal only for the keeper to deny him with a smart save.
