A goal in each half condemned Gainsborough to defeat in their trip to Nuneaton. Strikes from Aaron Williams and Shane Byrne were enough for the hosts as Trinity struggled to deal with conditions at Liberty Way. Gainsborough started the game with their first choice centre back pairing returning to action. Adam Quinn and Jake Picton had missed the last two games. Matt Wilson who had deputised at the heart of the defence, injured his back in training in the week and to compound that Stephen Brogan, who was meant to start at left back, injured a groin in the warm up.
