Great news for the struggling Mariners this week was the arrival of Danish striker David Nielsen who affirmed that he was looking forward to playing at the hallowed Blundell Park. The 23-year-old attacker has joined the Mighty Mariners on a three-month loan, and hopefully will make his debut against Huddersfield Town this weekend.
Daryl ClareDanish Nielsen concluded the paperwork for his move on Wednesday before telling reporters: "It's fantastic to be here. I've got to go and take a look at Blundell Park and I'm looking forward to playing here very much. My strength is my speed, I'm a good runner and I've got a good heart and I'll be running my balls off here," confirmed the Dane. Judging by Nielsen's grasp of the English Language he should fit right in with his new Cleethorpes unit. "I've played for Copenhagen for three-and-a-half years and I've been doing well, I've been golden boot winner for three years, but I need a change and I'd like to come abroad and play."

Also revealed, although unfortunately for Town manager Lennie Lawrence, was that Nielsen hopefully would not be the only international addition to his squad. Lawrence is attempting to broker a deal to bring 27-year-old Chinese national captain Zhang Enhua to North East Lincolnshire.

Huddersfield Town have made a similar appalling start to the season as the Mariners, but Steve Bruce judges that the 1-1 draw with Barnsley might prove to be the crucial turning-point of thier season.
Before the Barnsley game Steve Bruce appealed to his men to stand up and be counted. This seemed to do the trick when his side's sterile home run of eight defeats finally came to an end. The pressurised Huddersfield Town boss exclaimed: "There was a lot of edginess in our play at times but I know if we keep playing like that then we will not be near the bottom of the League for long. We're just not getting the breaks and that showed again tonight when we went 1-0 down. There was nothing Rob Kozluk could do as the ball just hit him on the chest and it went in. It meant we were chasing the game at that stage, but we came back strongly and got the point and that's credit to the effort and application of the players."
The ex-Man Utd man made clear that it was a regime of toil and sweat that had assisted in turning measures about at the Mac. He went on to explain that they had all worked hard in the last few weeks and the side was beginning to settle down.
