Impdom Expects: Old School Boro Basement Battle
Nuneaton Town, reformed in 2008, should be seen as a club on the rise, with this seen as a season of consolidation in the BSP. Naturally Boro will see the game against us as a key opportunity to launch the home stretch of a triumphant survival bid. Oh yes, this is a six-pointer if ever there was one. The Imps may be four points ahead of the hosts, but the foe have two games in hand and will have home advantage. The travelling Imp hordes will say otherwise and Simmo has been building that siege – none shall pass – mentality since the day he put his Sincil yellow socks. It has been raw meet all week. We will have to be mindful of Brown and new boy James Dance as well as Kyle Perry who has a habit of turning it on against us. Nat Brown is fit and set to start for the Imps, he is chomping at the bit and wants it at .

Town aka The Boro sit 22nd whilst the Imps sit 19th. This one will see both sides going for the win although our bet would be on a 1-0 win to Save The Mighty Imps
Nuneaton’s form is not as bad as it looks at first glance. Although Boro have failed to score in the last 3, a 0-0 against Luton and in-form Hereford, as well as a slender 1-0 defeat against Kidderminster, the form of the foe is none too shabby. Prior to that Boro did the job against Alfreton and Barrow. Postponements curtailed February, ending a run of two defeats. So Nuneaton have won 2 and lost just 1 of the last 5, the 7th most in-form side in the league over the same period (yet 22nd at home). Not too many goals scored here either.

Keeper corner- Lee Burge
Lee, on-loan from Coventry, has steadied the ship between the sticks. Boro have used 4 keepers this season but Lee has kept 3 clean sheets in his 6 games, two in the last 2 games.
