Match report courtesy of Nuneaton News;

Louis Moult came off the bench to earn Nuneaton Town a second straight win as they beat Chester 1-0 on Saturday.

He scored his 11th of the season with one of the few moments of quality in the game, which should probably have ended in a draw.

The first half was a scrappy affair as neither keeper was truly tested. Nuneaton struggled to break down Chester’s 4-5-1 formation with the only chance of the half falling to Freddie Ladapo.

He made crisp contact with a volley, but Danny Higginbotham proved his pedigree with an outstanding block.

Chester failed to have a shot on target and they lost two key players to injury. Both Gareth Seddon and Ross Killock were forced to come off, while Nuneaton also lost Theo Streete when he was wiped out by debutant keeper Kelle Roos.

Chester came out of their shells more after the break and should have taken the lead as Paul Linwood headed wide from six yards after 77 minutes when unmarked.

He was made to pay for his wastefulness as Boro won it with minutes to go. Half time substitute Emmitt Delfouneso had already rattled the bar with a brilliant effort when Moult scored.

He latched onto a loose ball to coolly clip the ball beyond John Danby and into the net from 10 yards. Chester surrounded the assistant referee on the far side.

They were convinced Moult had handballed it but their protests were waved away. Chester rarely threatened an equaliser, in fact they could have conceded a second in stoppage time when Dave Hibbert volleyed over having shown good strength.
