Spar­tans pile on woe for Boro

The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Chris Philpotts

NUNEATON saw their trou­bles con­tinue yes­ter­day as they made it seven games without a win in the league af­ter a quick-fire dou­ble at the start of the sec­ond half gave Blyth all three points.

The Boro, whose changes off the field meant they were only able to field three sub­sti­tutes for the game, started brightly, but were un­able to make that count as Ryan Ed­munds saw a close range ef­fort well saved by Peter Jame­son be­fore Adam McGurk saw his re­bound hit the side net­ting.

The vis­i­tors made them pay for that as Dan Maguire broke the dead­lock in the 26th minute when he slot­ted home at the sec­ond at­tempt.

The Boro con­tin­ued to press af­ter go­ing be­hind and had a great chance to draw level be­fore the break, but Dior An­gus saw his ef­fort come back off the post af­ter Jame­son got a hand to it.

That miss was dou­bly dis­ap­point­ing sec­onds into the sec­ond half as the vis­i­tors dou­bled their lead.

Jar­rett Rivers flicked home a cross past Cameron Belford, the keeper pick­ing the ball out of his net twice in quick suc­ces­sion as Maguire grabbed his sec­ond of the game mo­ments later.

Boro’s Nat Kelly hit the bar, be­fore An­gus even­tu­ally got some re­ward for the home side with a con­so­la­tion with five min­utes left.
