Nuneaton Town: Dance and Moult extend loans at Liberty Way

Nuneaton Town have extended the loans of front players James Dance and Louis Moult until the end of the season.

Striker Moult has not missed a game since initially arriving from Northampton Town a month ago.

After hitting a last-minute winner in successive matches, Luton Town winger Dance then injured his ankle ligaments and has missed Boro's last two games.

But, having returned to Luton for new Hatters boss John Still to take a look at him, he is free to play for Boro.

Boro's next three games . . .

  • Sat 16 March Lincoln City (h, 15:00 GMT)
  • Tues 19 March Grimsby (h, 19:45 GMT)
  • Sat 23 March Woking (h, 15:00 GMT)

Former Stoke City trainee Moult's only two goals so far this season came for Northampton back in November - and he has so far failed to find the net in six games for Nuneaton.

"The hope is he will get goals in the second month," said boss Kevin Wilkin. "But his performances have been good and there is more to his game than just goals.

"It's great to have a couple of quality options on board. I'm grateful to both Luton and Northampton for helping us out."

Nuneaton have not scored in three matches since Dance got injured, but their back-to-back battling goalless draws against play-off hopefuls Hereford United and Luton have offered hope that they will beat the drop.

Going into this Saturday's home date with Lincoln City (the first of three successive home games), having been sidelined on Saturday because of a waterlogged pitch at Braintree, they are a point adrift of safety in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Meanwhile, Wilkin has allowed forward Danny Newton to join non-league neighbours Barwell on loan.
