Report courtesy of Nuneaton News;

Nuneaton Town are top of Skrill Premier after they beat Hereford United 2-1 and Cambridge United drew at Alfreton Town.

Boro and Cambridge started the night locked on 20 points, but goals from Wes York and the league’s top scorer Louis Moult moved Nuneaton two points clear after the U’s drew 1-1.

York scored his first of the season as he rediscovered his form before going off injured in stoppage time.

Hereford levelled through Rod McDonald after 53 minutes, but Moult earned a fifth straight win in the 61st minute with his eighth in nine games.

There was one change to the team which beat Dartford 2-1 as James Belshaw was replaced by Dimi Evtimov in goal, the on loan Nottingham Forest keeper returning after two games out of the side.

He was called on to make a brilliant last minute save onto the bar to preserve the points.

Midfielder Phil Trainer was not involved having been loaned to Skrill North side Worcester City for a month.

After a quiet opening 10 minutes, Boro seized the advantage gradually. Andy Brown made a lot out of an average York cross to force Rhys Evans to tip over his header.

A minute later James Armson went close with a great left footed strike from 20 yards which the keeper did well to turn away.

The opening goal came in the 23rd minute and it was all about York. He showed his blistering pace by racing away from two opponents before releasing Danny Sleath in the left hand channel of the box.

He hit a low shot that skidded on the surface. Evans could only tip it out and York was there to slam in the rebound from eight yards.

Moult must have fancied his chances of a repeat of his free kick heroics at Darftord soon after, but his shot from a similar distance hit the wall before he blazed the rebound comfortably wide.

Hereford chances were rare before the break. Evtimov had to come out quickly to dive at Smith’s feet before keeping out a swerving shot from distance by Frankie Artus.

The visitors started the second half much the better as Evtimov did well to keep a Sam Smith header after 50 minutes.

There was nothing he could do three minutes later though as substitute Kingsley James whipped in a cross that begged to be headed in – and it was by McDonald from six yards.

The Bulls had a brief spell of dominance, but it was Boro who surged back in front after 61 minutes. Armson sped away from Paul Green before releasing Andy Brown down the right of the box.

He fired a low shot into the near post and Moult showed his goal scoring instincts to get across his man and stab in from close range.

Just like against Kidderminster Harriers there was a late scare as Chris Bush’s shot was brilliantly deflected onto the bar by Evtimov. The rebound sat up for Luke Graham but he scuffed it wide.

Boro held on though for another deserved win to go top.
