Guiseley AFC 2-1 Nuneaton Borough

Nuneaton Borough fell to a fourth consecutive defeat at Guiseley, despite holding a 1-0 lead at half time, their first lead of the season.

Enoch Andoh had put the Boro’ ahead after a neat one-two with Dior Angus as Nicky Eaden’s side utilised their pace to hit the Lions on the break. Second half goals, both as a result of set-pieces, from Alex Purver and Kaine Felix saw the hosts come from behind for a 2-1 win as Boro’ Captain Ash Carter was dismissed in a lively final few minutes.

The match was slow to develop as both sides cancelled each other out, Cam Belford, making his debut between the sticks was the busier keeper, saving well from Rowan Liburd a couple of times. With 20 minutes gone Andoh forced Joe Green in to action a direct free kick looked to be creeping under the crossbar before the Guiseley ‘keeper got his hands it.

A few minutes later and Andoh was at the heart of the action again, this time he gave Green no chance, sliding the ball past him and in to the bottom corner. The goal came from a Guiseley free kick as Boro’ cleared and Andoh and Angus broke, the latter playing the former in to score his second of the season.

It could easily have been 0-2 moments later as an errant back- pass lobbed Green, forcing him in to an acrobatic overhead kick to clear off his own goal-line. Boro’ had another chance to add a second in first half stoppage time, Harry Panayiotou headed a ball back across goal that found Danny Burns, but the rangey centre-half couldn’t keep his volley down.

The hosts made a double substitution at the break, introducing Purver and Kayode Odejayi, to give them more options going forward, and the change paid dividends as Guiseley controlled the opening 20 minutes of the second half, culminating in Purver’s strike as Boro’ struggled to clear a long throw. The ball dropped kindly for the sub on the edge of the box and his rasping low strike found the bottom corner.

There wasn’t another shot on target in the match until Felix scored almost a carbon copy in the 94th minute, just 30 seconds from the end of the match. Carter was sent off in the aftermath as Boro’ were left to travel home, rooted to the foot of the table. Eaden doesn’t have much time to change things as Brackley Town head to Liberty Way on Bank Holiday Monday for a 15:00 kick-off.
