Kingsley Williams grabbed the only goal of the game late in the second half after plenty of Boro chances went begging.

Just three minutes later Liam Ellis brought the ball down well and fed Tyrese Sinclair. The youngster found Ben Wharton but he couldn’t get the ball out of his feet to fire goalwards.

Moments later it should have been in the lead. Wharton forced a smart save from Hall from very close range.

The ball was in the back of the net on 26 minutes. Rick Smith fired a great shot back towards goal but it was ruled out by the linesmans flag for offside.

Hall was called into action once again by Liam Ellis, his header looked to open the scoring but for a great stop by the man in the Nantwich goal.

Substitute Vlademar Schouboe had the Dabbers best chance but his header went narrowly wide of Martin’s goal.
