Nuneaton Town 1-0 Welling United

Nuneaton grabbed a vital win in their battle to avoid relegation from the Conference against Welling.

A lacklustre first half demonstrated why both teams are at the wrong end of the table, with few chances created.

Andy Walker rifled in the game's only goal from the edge of the area to stretch Nuneaton's unbeaten run to three games as they fight for survival.

Welling have now lost their last seven league games and are only above the drop zone on goal difference.

Forward Samuel Akinde made a substitute appearance for Welling after signing on non-contract terms on Friday.
