PRESS | Defender George Nurse Looks Ahead to Morecambe Away this Weekend

20 December 2019

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

George Nurse has been pleased with the amount of playing time he has received recently and is aiming to continue his run in the team for the trip to Morecambe tomorrow.

The Bristol City loanee has featured in the last five games – starting the last three – and followed up his match-winning assist in the Emirates FA Cup triumph at Maldon & Tiptree by providing the cross for Jamille Matt’s last-gasp equaliser against Stevenage last weekend. 

The draw against ‘Boro ended a run of four consecutive league defeats and Nurse insists the squad can build on that by bringing the three points home.

“I think every game is a must-win game, we’re going up there to win," he said.

“We haven’t been in the best run of form recently and we’re looking to put that right tomorrow. 

“We’ve had a lot of injuries and illness, that’s not really helped.

“It’s given me a chance to get into the team and I appreciate that and I’ve got to try and keep my place now. 

“I think I’ve performed reasonably well and hopefully I can stay in the team. 

“I’m playing a bit higher up the pitch, which is always nice. It gives me a chance to try and create something for the boys. 

“It’s always something I’ve worked on, to try and beat my man and get that yard to get the ball in the box.”

The 20-year-old has certainly impressed in the final third with three assists and one goal – a 25-yard screamer against Carlisle United – in his 14 appearances for County this season and he will be hoping to add to those tallies at the Globe Arena.
