Armson red leaves Boro with no hope; FC HALIFAX 2 NUNEATON 0.

TWO goals in the final 15 minutes condemned Nuneaton Town to a 2-0 defeat at FC Halifax Town after James Armson had been sent off.

In a tight first half, Nuneaton held their play-off chasing opponents, with the hosts' best opening coming right at the end of the half, as a goal-mouth scramble saw a save from Christian Dibble, before goal-line blocks from Ben Starosta and Theo Streete.

Dibble denied Scott Boden after the break before the match turned when Armson was sent off for leading with an elbow when jumping for the ball on 64 minutes.

Halifax took the lead ten minutes later as Jamie Jackson's cross was glanced into the bottom corner from close range by James Bolton.

A man down, there was no way back for Boro and in the final minutes the hosts made sure of the points, when Dibble allowed Lois Maynard's header to slip through his hands and into the net.

James |Armson, left, was red carded.
