Tilson: Shrimpers needed victory

The 34-year-old striker hit the winner after 57 minutes when he latched onto a pass from debutant centre-back Dorian Dervite and looped the ball over goalkeeper Steve Phillips before heading in from a yard out.

The veteran forward's strike gave the Shrimpers their first league victory since late October.

"We desperately needed a win, so I'm glad to get the points," said Tilson.

"We thoroughly deserved the win because we created a lot more chances than they did. We should have got more goals but I'll take the 1-0."
