Mississauga’s Jackson gets his first Premiership goal

Comments Off on Mississauga’s Jackson gets his first Premiership goal

Simeon Jackson has opened his Premier League scoring account.

The Canadian national-team regular scored his first Premier League goal, Tuesday, as Norwich City had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After going on a torrid scoring spree at the tail end of last season — a spree which helped Norwich gain automatic promotion from the Championship to the Premier League — Jackson has spent almost the entire EPL campaign on the bench or coming on as a late sub. The only starts Jackson has enjoyed have come with the Canadian national team.

But the Mississauga product scored just one minutes after being inserted as a sub in Tuesday’s match, tapping home a cross from Steve Morison. That 76th-minute goal gave Norwich City a 2-1 lead, but they were pegged back thanks to a headed effort from Wolves’ Ronald Zubar.

Jackson had a great chance to score Norwich’s third goal right after he scored the second, but his effort went over the bar.

But it was a bright cameo for the Canadian — and hopefully it can lead to more appearances (as in, starts), especially with the crowed Christmas fixture list forcing sides to rotate their squads.
