ASHLEY Chambers might be Nuneaton Town’s 23-goal top scorer this season, but it’s another former York City attacker that is currently hitting the target on a more regular basis.

Three goals in four games means Daniel Nti has been the man to watch during recent weeks for the Warwickshire outfit, scoring Saturday’s only goal to secure victory at Southport, following other efforts in draws against Alfreton and North Ferriby.

Nti only managed to net once in 19 outings for the Minstermen last season and also got on the scoresheet just twice during his first 26 Nuneaton matches.

But he has hit a prolific streak of form ahead of entertaining his old club while Chambers, whose 2017/18 haul includes a pair of hat-tricks, has gone five games without a goal since a 1-1 home draw against Chorley in February.

Despite Chambers’ exploits throughout the season, Nuneaton’s home tally of 24 goals is the second-lowest in National League North behind bottom-of-the-table Ferriby (ten).

But goals have been in short supply at both ends of the Liberty Stadium pitch all season with only the division’s top-two defensive teams – Brackley and Chorley – having conceded fewer than Nuneaton’s 18 in front of their own fans.

Both statistics are evident in Nuneaton’s climb from the lower reaches to mid-table since the turn of the year, with 13 goals scored in 14 matches during 2018, but six clean sheets also kept in that time.

Town have lost just one of their last 12 games – a 1-0 defeat at Leamington last month – winning seven of those matches and, at home, they are unbeaten in five contests, taking nine points from a possible 15.

The Minstermen’s visit will represent former Nottingham Forest right-back Gary Charles’ first home game in charge, having taken four points from a possible six on the road.

Charles is in his first managerial job and is Nuneaton’s third boss this season with his predecessors Tommy Wright and Dino Maamria having left for Darlington and Stevenage respectively.

He has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
