Nuneaton Town V Imps – 6 Points in 96 hours or Bust For Simmo’s Dogs of War

Nuneaton Town and Southport in the next four days could well get our season back on track. Unbeaten in two the Imps will test any lingering hopes of a play-off flirt against two teams that will not be push-overs despite their form. Nuneaton have a new boss in Liam Daish a miracle worker in Conference circles, Have we met him and them at just the right time?

The Challenge

Liam Daish is no mug, indeed I actually tipped him for the job for another site I write for and praised the wisdom of the Nuneaton board. If anyone is going to fill promotion guru Kevin Wilkin’s boots it is Daish, not reid who failed abysmally after just five months.  Liam had a stand named after him at Ebbsfleet and did fantastic things with a budget even worse than the one Simmo has and he was funded by a shambolic website that was about as consistant as the old school dinners custard. The Fleet did sink under him due to a parlous financial position and, when the new guys came in they decided they wanted a fresh set of ideas. He then took some time out waiting for the right kind of challenge. This guy with backing and a regular,  sustained budget, could get them into the Football League.

The Boro can feel themselves unfortunate after battling hard until Sole got a last minute set-peice wonder-strike to settle matters.  Daish has been making plenty of loan enquiries  during his first week with winger Dawson arriving from Leicester City (he graduated through the Wigan academy before becoming a Fox last summer.  He should start, Dawson and Armson will be trouble for Miller and Newton tomorrow as they come forward.

As you would expect in that neck of the woods the Coventry connection is strong, ex-Sky Blue Lee Fowler (played for Harriers too) makes the midfield tick, with a 4-3-3 formation used last time out to good effect. Streete, the centre-back is a clever player too and would do a job in League 2 at the right club.  Keeper Reice Charles-Cook  is on loan from Coventry until January, he is useful with good positioning reactions and distribution.  Ex-Imp Nicky Eaden  is also involved behind the scenes at a club that has some very ambitious plans if they can stay up.
