Imps V Nuneaton – Will it be Thrills Or Spills Without Mills?
After 3 promotions in 4 years, Nuneaton Town manager Kevin Wilkin, is as shrewd as you get at non-League level. Reformed in 2008, the phoenix club aka The Boro, are unbeaten in two, after draws against Hyde 2-2 and Macc 3-3. This suggests they have what it takes to consolidate this season, with the part-timers just one place above us and better travellers than they are in front of their own (14th against 18th and 20th overall). Kyle Perry has joined then from us, whilst Captain Mills, who came our way, will be kicking himself at missing this one. He starts the first of his 3 match ban for his violent conduct sending off against the Lambs.

After leading the club back from the dead, having been liquidated in 2008, can one of non-league football’s shrewdest bosses pull off the unthinkable?

Keeper corner – Neil Collett
Neil has played 6 to new signing Ben McNamara’s 4 and looks likely to start tonight. He has 2 clean sheets to his name and is a solid, if unspectacular keeper. The 2-2 draw against Hyde on Saturday and the 3-3 thriller against Macc saw the good and bad in him as th Boro conceded to late ones at the death. Good communicator and brave, not great aerial command of his area, but an above average shot stopper for this level. Was Mazza’s understudy at the Stags in 2010/11.
