Match report courtesy of Coventry Telegraph;

Nuneaton Town were left to rue a day of defensive errors as their winless run continued with a comprehensive home defeat to Gateshead.

Nuneaton created more than their fair share of chances but came up against a resolute defence, while the same could not be said for Boro after four soft goals saw them out of the contest by the hour mark.

Louis Moult did grab his tenth of the season late on, but Kevin Wilkin’s side continue to slip down the Skrill Premier table, the flying start becoming a distant memory.

The visitors took the lead on 15 minutes as James Marwood’s shot squirmed under the outstretched arms of James Belshaw, and five minutes later the lead was doubled as a long ball over the top found Jordan Hugill with plenty of room to slide the ball past Belshaw.

Boro started to dominate as the half wore on, and were unlucky not to get on the score sheet before the break as Adam Walker saw a shot narrowly miss the top corner.

Gareth Dean also put a header wide, while from a corner David Hibbert and Louis Moult were both denied by goal-line clearances in quick succession.

Boro continued to press after the interval, Moult seeing another effort blocked, before the visitors’ keeper produced a wonderful save, diving at full stretch to tip Walker’s powerful volley onto the bar.

That would prove to be crucial as shortly after Gateshead struck the decisive blow. They were again aided by Boro as Delroy Gordon fouled Colin Larkin inside the area, Larkin picking himself up to convert from the spot.

And the visitors were out of sight three minutes later as Dean was dispossessed far too easily, and from the resulting cross Rob Ramshaw headed in from close range.

Moult did get Boro onto the score sheet on 73 minutes, after being sent clear by Louis Briscoe, but by that stage the damage had been done.

James Armson had a chance to further reduce the deficit from the penalty spot with seven minutes remaining after being chopped down inside the area, but his effort was weak and easily saved by Barlett.
