JCR: Put The Frustration To Good Use

24 October 2012

Midfielder upbeat about team's home fortunes, despite disappointment of Bournemouth result...

Jamal Campbell-Ryce was left distraught at the final whistle, after seeing his late strike cancelled out. 

The midfielder terrorised the away backline with an impressive performance on the wing and got his rewards when he slotted home an 84th minute penalty, which restored County’s lead after earlier letting a two-goal lead slip. 

With the score at 3-2 in Notts’ favour, the game appeared to be over, only for Bournemouth’s Matt Tubbs to come off the bench to salvage a point for his side.

Although disappointed, Campbell-Ryce was keen to take the positives out of the match and is eager to take his frustration out on Doncaster Rovers this weekend. 

“Obviously being the home side an going 2-0 up, we were cruising,” he said. 

“We weren’t resting on our laurels but I think that early goal in the second half killed us a bit. 

“Then they got the dubious penalty but I think that we bounced back well.

“The lads showed what a good side we are and went up again.

“The manager’s said to us that the first five minutes after scoring is the most important and obviously we’ve all switched off and conceded another equaliser.

“We’re massively frustrated but we’ve stopped the rut at home and we’ll march on to another home game now.”

He continued: “This season, we’re definitely showing that we’re one of the best footballing teams in the league.

“The manager and the staff want exciting football and that’s what we’re trying to deliver.

“Hopefully it can be an exciting game but with us getting three points on Saturday.”
