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