Nicholls relishing No.1 opportunity

16 April 2017

Lee Nicholls is enjoying his chance to shine and has stressed his desire to keep hold of the No.1 shirt.

The 23-year-old has started the last four games for Robbie Neilson’s men after initially being given an opportunity following an injury to David Martin.

"I want to keep hold of it, there's nothing I want more than to play in the league," he said.

"When you're a kid, it's what you dream of. Hopefully I can stay in there.

"I know Dave will push me day-to-day, but I know he will support me too. Myself and Dave are close, but it's a competition and we push each other and help each other along.

"Earlier this season, Dave did well and I sat behind him and supported him all the way. I got the chance against Gillingham, I'd like to think I took it and I'm thankful for to the gaffer for the opportunity.

"All you can do is come in every day, work hard and be around the boys. You do whatever you can to help the team win."
