Gary Charles got his first league win as manager of Vanarama National League North club Nuneaton Town on Saturday as Daniel Nti’s deflected effort was enough for all three points at the Merseyrail Community Stadium.
Southport, who boast the league’s top scorer in Jason Gilchrist, were shut out by a battling Boro side that showed great determination as they picked up their sixth away win of the season.
Charles told the club`s official Pitchero website: “It was a great result for the lads that showed a lot of spirit. The shape improved after the first 5 or 10 minutes and we made enough chances that I think we thoroughly deserved the win.
“We’ve got a good group here, with Ashley Chambers and Daniel Nti up top, and young Kairo Mitchell came on as well, it gives us a good chance of scoring goals. I thought the centre-halves were excellent today as well, it’s nice to have big Kelvin Langmead back he’s looking strong and fit again. He’s experienced and that helps the players around him.”
On his thoughts for the big week ahead, Charles added: “We’re not safe yet, I’m watching videos on York City and Salford City and they’re good sides, but Southport look a good side in the videos I’ve watched as well, sometimes you forget what a good side you can be.
“We’ve got a good group of lads and I know we can match anyone. The most important thing for us as a group is getting the points on the board, when we heard that the Southport game might have been off we were very disappointed because we wanted to play. We’ve gone and played and got a result in a hard place to go. They’re a good side and they’ve spend a bit of money so that result should give the lads a lot of encouragement”.
