WE HAVE TO KEEP CALM; Wilkin warning as unbeaten Boro keep up pace at top.

Byline: Geoff Berkeley

NUNEATON Town boss Kevin Wilkin says his side must not get too carried away after they produced an impressive display to defeat ten-man Grimsby Town 2-1 at Blundell Park.

Gavin Cowan and Andrew Brown scored either side of the half hour mark before Aswad Thomas was sent off for an off-the-ball incident just before the break.

Substitute Andy Cook got one back for the Mariners late on, but the visitors held firm to seal a victory which leaves Boro level on points with leaders Cambridge in third spot.

Wilkin, who has yet to taste defeat since the new campaign got underway, was delighted to pick up a fourth win of the season. But the Boro boss insisted his players must remain focused if they are to continue their unbeaten run.

"We are delighted with the result. To come away to Grimsby and take the three points is fantastic," Wilkin said.

"We moved the ball well in the first half and worked incredibly hard. Without a shadow of a doubt we were value for the three points.

"But you can never get too carried away with things. Yes, we are playing well at the moment, but if you get an injury or suspension to the wrong players all of a sudden the dynamics can change.

"We are playing well and the lads are very confident, but we need to make sure we maintain that and take it into the next six games and we will see where we are then."
