Braintree Town 2-0 Nuneaton Town

Nuneaton's winless start to the season continued as they had Ben Hutchinson sent off before conceding two late goals at Braintree.

Boro have failed to score in all five of their Conference games this season and had Hutchinson sent off in the second half for a foul on Ryan Peters.

Mitch Brundle put the hosts in front with 12 minutes to play with a low free-kick.

Sub Michael Bakare sealed the win in the 88th minute with a powerful strike.
