Match report courtesy of Coventry Telegraph;

Nuneaton Town moved up to third in the Conference Skrill Premier with a comfortable win over Southport.

An absorbing first ten minutes ultimately decided the outcome at the Sperrin Brewery Stadium, with the windy conditions more than playing their part.

But it was Nuneaton who coped the better of the two sides over the 90 minutes.

Kevin Wilkin made one change to the team that drew with Forest Green Rovers in midweek, as midfielder Daniel Sleath replaced Jon Adams, who was suffering from a tight hamstring.

Nuneaton got off to the perfect start thanks to Louis Moult smashing home Theo Streete’s long throw on two minutes, but Aaron Chalmers soon levelled when diverting David Fitzpatrick’s cross in off the post.

Moult didn’t waste any time in grabbing his brace, though, with a superb strike into the bottom corner.

From this point on, Boro enjoyed a dominant hold on the rest of the contest.

Nevertheless, James Belshaw needed to be on hand to tip Chalmers’ free-kick round the post on 17 minutes.

Boro then caused havoc from a free-kick of their own, as the wind almost blew Adam Walker’s delivery from the right into the back of the net.

Nuneaton continued to turn the screw and Moult’s curling attempt drifted just over the crossbar.

However, Wes York should have done better after jinking his way into the box, only for the youngster to blast his shot straight at Hurst’s legs.

The Warwickshire outfit subsequently controlled proceedings in the second-half, but were guilty of wasting a number of opportunities.

After Belshaw pulled off a smart save at his near post to deny Danny Hattersley, Hurst then flung himself in the way of York’s shot on the turn at the other end.

A third Nuneaton goal remained elusive as they struck the woodwork three times in the space of two minutes.

Headers from Gareth Dean and Andy Brown struck the frame of the goal, then James Armson’s rising thunderbolt was tipped on to the bar by Hurst.

But victory was eventually secured seven minutes from time when Walker drilled his effort past Hurst.
