WATCH: Man of the match Nellis says Terriers have improved under Innes

Bedlington Terriers defender Keelan Nellis believes the side defended well especially where they had their ‘backs against the wall’ in the second half of their 1-1 draw with Marske United.

The visitors left Welfare Park with a share of the points after equalising with a late own-goal

Nellis said: “I am disappointed, we have defended very well for the whole game, especially in the second half where they threw everything against us.

“It’s just dissapointing to concede with the last kick of the game.”

Terriers had gone in front through substitute Andrew Keenen with 13 minutes to go, but conceded a last second equaliser after Stephen Little headed into his own net.

Nellis, who has impressed critics this season, was awarded Bedlington’s man of the match for his brilliant performance in the contest.

He added: “I think the results are speaking for themselves under the new manager, we have had three great performances since he came in and I am happy with the way things are going, it is a massive improvement.“

Bedlington go into games against Newton Aycliffe and Sunderland RCA in high-spirits after a brilliant performance against a title-chasing Marske outfit.
