Men Of Steel

22 December 2013

Defender Alan Sheehan believes that Notts County's never-say-die attitude can guide the team away from trouble.

In Saturday's 1-1 draw with Bristol City Sheehan rescued a point for the Magpies at Meadow Lane with a last-gasp penalty kick to cancel out Sam Baldock’s first half opener, which was also from the spot. 
 
Under new boss Shaun Derry, the centre-back believes that the Magpies have turned a corner and are becoming a much tougher outfit to beat.
 
He said: “I knew it was a big penalty because it was a game that we couldn't afford to lose.

“There was a lot riding on it so thankfully I sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.
 
“I think it was definitely a deserved point and on another day we could have possibly got three.
 
“A few weeks ago we would have been losing games like that and now it just shows the steel that’s in the team to grind out the point.
 
“There’s a great togetherness in there now and everybody’s fighting for each other now, which is great to see.
 
“It was good to get the point in the end.”
