Stockport County 2-2 Nuneaton Borough

Ten-man Boro' fight back for deserved point in dramatic draw at Edgeley Park

An 80th minute equaliser from Boro' captain Miles Addison was enough to secure a point for the away side despite Curtis Obeng’s second half red card. Nuneaton dominated the first half and took the lead early on, as the Boro' caught Stockport on the counter-attack and forward Adam McGurk drove the ball home beautifully from 18 yards.

The Boro' almost doubled their lead minutes after the opening goal as a Dior Angus header was well saved by Stockport ‘keeper Ben Hinchliffe. Addison could have scored after half an hour, as he found himself unmarked, following a well-rehearsed corner routine, but Hinchliffe was again on hand to deny the Boro' as they would have been disappointed to only be a goal up at half-time.

The Hatters came out in the second half a different side and equalised in the 58th minute thanks to a fine flick from winger Adam Thomas following a low cross from Darren Stephenson. Just ten minutes later, Stockport took the lead as Obeng handled on the line, resulting in a sending off and Walker slotting away the penalty.

Despite the setback, Boro' didn’t give up and Addison’s near-post header from a Devon Kelly-Evans corner with ten minutes ago sealed a well-fought point. The draw wasn’t enough to move Nuneaton out of the relegation zone, but the gap is now two points following Hereford’s 3-1 loss to Boston United.

The draw follows yesterdays positive news that director’s loans had been written off, paving the way for the club to be more attractive to prospective new owners. The Boro' return to Greater Manchester for Tuesday’s away fixture at Altrincham and will look to push on following today’s point.
