Nuneaton Town 1-0 Hyde

Nuneaton maintained their play-off hunt with victory over strugglers Hyde.

It took the rock-bottom visitors just 69 seconds to concede when James Armson found the top corner from 12 yards.

Nuneaton goalkeeper James Belshaw made a series of saves to deny Hyde, first turning Scott Spencer's shot around the post before tipping Adam Thurston's long-range effort over the bar.

Both Andy Brown and Louis Moult missed late chances to seal victory, but Boro held on for the three points.

Nuneaton's third straight home league win lifts them a place to fourth in the Conference Premier table.
