Nigel Clough: “We deserved the win”



Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough admitted that despite a nervy end to the game against Gillingham, they deserved their win, reports the club website.

The game was settled by a fantastic solo goal from Jamie Murphy after the Blades fell behind to a Luke Norris screamer for Gillingham, before Michael Higdon quickly equalised.

Murphy’s goal right at the death means four wins on the trot at Bramall Lane in all competitions and Clough spoke after the match, saying to the club website: “We could and should have won the game comfortably, but in the first-half we didn’t play with the same intensity as we did after the break.

“It is another win though, a thoroughly deserved one and the eventually manner of the victory shouldn’t disguise the fact that we produced a very good performance and had enough chances to win two or three matches.

“We didn’t have that bit of luck with the bounce of the ball off the woodwork, but Stephen (Bywater) who we know from our time at Derby produced several good saves as their goal led a charmed life.

“It was a totally domination for long periods, particularly in the second-half but you see a lot of games like that then a screamer goes in at the other end and often you don’t get what you deserve, thankfully we did on this occasion.”
