AFC Telford United 3-1 Nuneaton Borough

The Boro’ slipped to a second consecutive 3-1 defeat as AFC Telford United were the beneficiaries of some good fortune.

The hosts came flying out of the traps and had several early opportunities, however, Boro’ should, perhaps, have taken the early lead when Dior Angus was adjudged to have been fouled in the area by Theo Streete. The Referee pointed to the spot but Carl Baker’s penalty was easily saved by Andy Wycherley.

Moments later Cam Belford pulled off a remarkable save to deny Brendon Daniels who had put in what looked like a perfectly placed header. Boro’ had begun to play themselves in to the match as the game headed towards the break but Daniel Udoh’s speculative 43rd minute effort took an enormous deflection off Nat Kelly to leave Belford stranded. The hosts might have felt fortunate to lead at the break as Boro’ had defended well.

Things turn a dramatic turn for the worse as Lee Hildreth was pulled up for a foul when it looked as though he’d clearly won the ball in a 50/50 challenge with Daniels. The former picked himself up to curl a sublime effort inside the post direct from the resulting free kick.

Darryl Knights added to the Boro’s Boxing Day blues with another goal that took a wicked deflection and Jimmy Ginnelly’s side found themselves 3-0 down in the 54th minute. The Boro’ didn’t lie down and gave plenty of effort as they tried to fight back in to the match.

Nuneaton had 19 shots on goal and finally found the break through as Mike Calveley got a boot on the end of Nat Kelly’s knockdown, steering his effort inside the post with virtually the last kick of the match.

Ginnelly doesn’t have long to lift his troops as they head to Brackley Town on Saturday, for a fifth meeting of the season with the Saints, then the Boro’ head home for a New Year’s Day clash with this same Telford side in a 13:00 kick-off at Liberty Way.
