The City loans report: Nurse bags first EFL goal

Your first EFL goal will always be memorable, but no more so than for George Nurse.

The City loanee raised the roof at Rodney Parade when he came off the bench and found the back of the net from 30 yards in the 94th minute to secure victory for Newport County over Carlisle United.

WATCH THE WONDER STRIKE

 

Elsewhere, Max O’Leary secured his fifth clean sheet of the season in Shrewsbury Town’s 1-0 win away at Tranmere Rovers.

Jamie Paterson played 84 minutes for Derby County as they overcame Luton Town 2-0, while Joe Morrell played the full 90 minutes for Lincoln City in their 2-1 victory.

Matty Taylor was introduced in the 77th minute as Oxford United drew 2-2 at Accrington Stanley to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches.

Liam Walsh completed 56 minutes in Coventry City’s 4-0 loss to Rotherham United and Rory Holden’s Walsall suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Salford City.

Robbie Cundy helped Torquay United to three points and Forest Green Rovers went top of League Two, with James Morton introduced from the bench.

Sam Pearson set up a goal but ended up on the wrong side of an FA Cup defeat for Bath City, with Vince Harper and Tom Harrison completing 90 minutes in Gloucester City’s FA Cup replay.

Bradley Webb and Louis Britton both got minutes in Yate Town’s 3-0 loss to Truro City, while Lochlan Robertson kept another clean sheet in Evesham United’s 4-0 home win versus Mangotsfield United.

In Scotland, Zak Vyner was an unused substitute for Aberdeen and Jonny Smith provided an assist as Oldham Athletic drew 1-1 at home to Cheltenham Town.
