GOALKEEPER ANDERS LINDEGAARD was the unlikely hero for Helsingborg yesterday as they snatched a draw away to fellow strugglers Falkenberg in dramatic circumstances.

Best known for his four-and-a-half-year spell at Manchester United, Lindegaard got his head to a 90th-minute corner to earn his side a 2-2 draw.

It was a fine finish and a significant one too, as it kept Helsingborg – who are managed by former Aston Villa defender Olof Mellberg – off the foot of the Swedish top flight.

Lindegaard joined Helsingborg last summer after nearly a decade in England, where he also had spells with West Bromwich Albion, Preston North End and Burnley.

The Danish international was brought to Manchester United from Norwegian club Aalesund by Alex Ferguson in January 2011. He made 29 appearances in all competitions while providing back-up to Edwin van der Sar and – later – David de Gea.

Lindegaard won a Premier League medal at the end of the 2012-13 season, having played 10 games during the campaign.
