Jones: This Can Be Our Turning Point

22 September 2013

Assistant manager Mick Jones believes that the 2-0 triumph over Tranmere Rovers can mark a turning point in the Magpies’ season.

After a disappointing opening to the campaign, the squad regrouped and delivered their best performance of 2013.14 in front of an impressed Meadow Lane crowd.

Goals from Joss Labadie and Marcus Haber secured the team’s first three points of the season and lifted Notts off the bottom of the Sky Bet League 1 table. 

County had been hurt by the 5-1 thumping by Leyton Orient in midweek but the result only fuelled the squad’s desire to bounce back, which they did against Rovers. 

Jones recalled a heavy defeat from his playing days in the black and white stripes and hopes that Notts can continue to respond in the same manner in the upcoming fixtures. 

He said: “My mind went back to my playing days under Jimmy Sirrel and I think we got beat 5-0 at the Valley.

“It was an unbelievable result for Notts County because we were such a good team.

“But, I remember the rest of the season and we won the league on the strength of that.

“Let’s hope it can be a turning point for these players, because we’ve displayed that we’ve got some very good players.

“There’s a lot of pace in the team and the performances of the youngsters is outstanding.

“If we can keep everything tight and together and make sure that nobody gets carried away, nobody buckles at this place, then we can turn everything around.”
