Net Gains for Boro’s Jor­dan

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Rob Hughes

GAINS­BOR­OUGH lost at home for the first time since Septem­ber, against rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals Nuneaton Town.

It was a dis­ap­point­ing dis­play for the home side in a game that was set­tled in the 17th minute by Boro’s Jor­dan Nicholson.

On loan for­ward Nicholson was given time and space ten yards out and made no mis­take con­vert­ing from James Ferry’s cut back.

Trin­ity strug­gled to keep the ball and rarely threat­ened Dean Ly­ness in the Boro goal, his op­po­site num­ber, Hen­rich Ravas the busier keeper.

Ravas saved the home side with some strong blocks at the feet of former York City and Da­gen­ham & Red­bridge at­tacker Ash­ley Cham­bers on two oc­ca­sions and then again at the feet of goalscorer Nicholson be­fore the break.

Ravas de­nied Tom El­liott with a fine div­ing save, be­fore Ryan Beswick tested the Slo­vakian with a strike from dis­tance as the vis­i­tors went in search of a sec­ond goal.

Ash­ley Wors­fold then had the best chance for Trin­ity, latch­ing onto a de­fence split­ting ball from Bradley Wells, but Ly­ness was off his line quickly.

As the game wore to a close, Dino Maam­ria’s Nuneaton re­mained res­o­lute and sti­fled Trin­ity’s threat to seal a cru­cial three points in the bat­tle to beat the Na­tional League North drop. STAR MAN: Tom El­liott (Nuneaton) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
