County slide to defeat at Nuneaton
Saturday 17th November/3pm
County slid to their third successive away defeat with a disappointing 2-0 reverse at bottom club Nuneaton Town.
Andy Brown gave the home side the lead just before half-time when he outmuscled Jordan Fagbola to nod Simon Forsdick's cross past Ian Ormson, coming after a first half in which a lethargic County threatened very little and never really looked like scoring.
That was aside from new boy Connor Jennings, signed on loan from Scunthorpe Utd as we revealed earlier this week, who spurned a glorious chance to open the scoring in the first minute of the match when his free header from Sean Newton's cross floated wide.
The game was taken beyond County's reach when James Tunnicliffe hauled down Gareth Dean in the box, and Adam Walker smashed home the penalty.
County's play improved in the second half, dominating the majority without creating anything in terms of scoring chances or anything to trouble Boro stopper Adam Smith.
The defeat sees The Hatters slide to 13th in the division, with a frustrated Jim Gannon looking for a reaction from his players in next Saturday's FA Trophy tie with Ossett Town at Edgeley Park.
