Salisbury City scored two late goals to inflict a first defeat of the season on Nuneaton.

The hosts broke the deadlock on 73 minutes when James Armson's cross was turned in by Louis Moult.

Ben Wright equalised with a penalty, awarded after Gavin Cowan had brought down Dan Fitchett in the box.

And the Whites snatched a winner when Elliott Frear drilled home with his left foot to extend his side's unbeaten run to seven games.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Salisbury City manager Mikey Harris told BBC Wiltshire:

Post-match: Salisbury boss Harris

"What a fantastic level of resilience today. We fought back from 1-0 down and I don't feel we deserved to go 1-0 down. I think we just shaded the game.

"Winning away games are like gold-dust. Credit to the team today, I thought it was a fantastic team performance.

"I'm just over the moon that we've come here and picked up three points against the in-form team and the team that were top of the table."
