MATCH PRE­VIEW: Nuneaton Town v Macc Town (Sat, 3pm)

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

A trou­bled sea­son for Nuneaton con­tin­ued on Satur­day as they were un­able to see off Hemel Hemp­stead in the cup.

GOALS have been hard to come by for Nuneaton, who’ve won two and lost six in their last eight league games.

THE loss of man­ager Kevin Wilkin to Wrex­ham saw their play-off chal­lenge fal­ter late last sea­son.

THE Boro were fourth as March came to an end but fell away to close the cam­paign in 13th place.

THIS time around – their third sea­son back in the Con­fer­ence – they’ve strug­gled and cur­rently sit third-bot­tom with four wins.

LOUIS Moult and Wes York fol­lowed Wilkin to Wrex­ham and the loss of those key at­tack­ing play­ers sees them the di­vi­sion’s low­est scor­ers, with 13.

THEIR cause won’t be helped by a re­cent bro­ken jaw to star striker Andy Brown.

NUNEATON are also the only team in the league with­out an away win to their name.

THEY’VE only taken one point from nine games away from Lib­erty Way.

BOSS Liam Daish has made moves to cover Brown’s ab­sence, bring­ing in Cardiff City young­ster Dane Grif­fiths and Onome Sodje, nephew of Macc as­sis­tant man­ager Efe.

DAISH, who took over from Brian Reid in Septem­ber, spent eight years as Ebb­s­fleet man­ager and led them to FA Trophy suc­cess in 2008.

ALTHOUGH the 2012/13 sea­son’s meet­ings both ended in draws, Nuneaton did the dou­ble over Macc last term, with two 1-0 wins.
