Nuneaton Town 1-0 Tamworth

Emmitt Delfouneso scored his first Nuneaton Town goal as they kept alive their play-off hopes with victory against struggling Tamworth.

Delfouneso's early dipping effort from 30 yards slipped through goalkeeper James Belford's fingers and into the top-left corner.

Wes York nearly added a second, hitting the post with a volley.

Adam Walker was next to go close for the home side, but his 25-yard effort was tipped around the post by Belford.

Nuneaton move up one place to fourth in the Conference Premier, while Tamworth remain five points from safety.
