Defender put Town ahead in the second half with a glancing header

Marcus Nilsson netted his first goal in Town colours this afternoon as Steven Pressley’s side drew with the Blades on the Fylde Coast.

Nilsson put through his own net in the first half as Matt Done’s cross took an unlucky deflection off the Swede, but he made amends after the break with a glancing header past George Long.

It was to be a feeling of frustration at the end of the game though, as Che Adams’ penalty in injury time meant the Yorkshire outfit left Highbury with a share of the spoils.

Nilsson said: “It’s really disappointing that we didn’t win because the guys fought really hard during the whole game and I definitely didn’t think it was a penalty.

“Their first goal came off me which was a bit unlucky, but Ash equalised with an amazing goal and we played quite well until half time.

“In the second half after we took the lead they came at us and pushed us more, but unfortunately the referee decided the game in the end.

“It was a great feeling to score my first goal for the Club. It was a great ball in from Jimmy and I just got my head to it and it went in.

“We were defending a lot towards the end but we were used to that because questions were asked of us during our last couple of games too, but we coped well.

“We’ve had a good go at it recently and have picked up a lot of points, but we would have been even happier with another three points today.”
