Loan pair Lee Burge and Aaron Phillips play part in Boro win...

Coventry City’s loan pair Lee Burge and Aaron Phillips was involved in Nuneaton Town’s 2-1 win over Barrow.

Kevin Wilkin’s side moved into 20th place in the Blue Square Bet Premier with the win despite Adam Boyes’ 48th minute strike to put the home side ahead.

However, Town rallied late on and secured the win thanks to Andy Brown and James Dance netting within the last two minutes. 

City’s on-loan keeper Lee Burge was credited with many fine saves during the game, including a double stop to keep out Danny Rowe and Efe Sodje, and a fine save to tip Boyes’ drive over the bar. 

Burge’s performance saw him placed in the Non-League Paper’s Team of the Week as his vital stops helped the side move level on points with relegation rivals Gateshead.

Right-back Aaron Phillips also played the full 90 minutes as Nuneaton record an impressive away-day victory.
