JCR: We’re Desperate To Bounce Back

3 October 2012

Players already focused on making amends for Boro defeat…

Although frustrated by the 2-1 loss to Stevenage, the squad will not waste their time sulking, says Jamal Campbell-Ryce.

Campbell-Ryce gave the Magpies a 71st minute lead from the penalty spot on Tuesday night but late goals from Lucas Akins and Robin Shroot saw Boro steal all three points. 

The defeat marked County’s second loss of the season and ended a seven-match unbeaten run. 

With another tough encounter at Meadow Lane coming up on Saturday against npower League 1 leaders Tranmere Rovers, the winger is eager for Notts to bounce back with a positive result.

“Obviously everyone’s disappointed but we’re not going to slit our wrists and nobody’s going to kill themselves,” he told Magpie Player. 

“We’ve got another game at the weekend so we’ve got to recover well and rest well and get our heads up, because there’s another 30-odd games left in the season.

“We’re not going to cry over one bad result.”

He added: “It’s frustrating but that’s part and parcel of football, and when you’re a good footballing side, teams are going to want to come here and frustrate us.

“Obviously, being a passing team, Stevenage came here and sat back and it was just a frustrating game.

“We’ve got to understand that teams are going to do that and once we got our goal we needed to just go back to basics and just see out the game.

“Things happen in the game and we end up losing and not getting anything from it, which is frustrating.

“We’ve just got to get on with it, because we’ve got a game on Saturday to rectify the result.”
