Nuneaton Town skipper Kelvin Langmead believes that their home defeat at the hands of Bradford Park Avenue last month acted as a ‘wake-up call’.

Since then we have won at Boston United before coming from behind to beat Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday.

“Our first half performance against Gainsborough wasn’t good enough,” he said without hesitation. “It was very similar to the previous home game against Bradford Park Avenue, but we knew the importance of coming out for the second half with a positive attitude to turn things around and in the end we deserved the win.

“It was a big three points for us; that defeat to Bradford Park Avenue was a real wake-up call and since then we’ve managed to win two games in a row and now we’re looking at breaking into the top half of the table.

“We’ve reacted in the right way over the past couple of games and now the challenge is to make it three wins in a row with the visit of Worcester City at the weekend.

“We’re feeding off each other right now; Joe [Ironisde] and Jordan [Nicholson] are back amongst the goals again and we’re limiting teams to very few chances as a defensive unit.”
