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 .

A massive welcome to the Boro fans visiting the site for the first or second time, thank you for reading the Form of the Foe courtesy of Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

Badge of Nuneaton TownThe Boro’s Form

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.
