Nuneaton Town 2-0 Welling United

Nuneaton's third win in five games saw them strengthen their grip on a play-off place as they eased past Welling.

The visitors had the first shot on target but James Belshaw made a smart save to stop Harry Beautyman's shot.

Boro's first real attempt resulted in a goal when Andy Brown rose highest to head home James Armson's cross.

Dave Hibbert wrapped things up three minutes from time when he turned in Danny Sleath's cross to keep their promotion push on track.
