Jake Cassidy Happy To Upset A Few People It Brings Notts County Success

14 August 2014

Striker Jake Cassidy does not mind upsetting opposition supporters this year if it means that Notts County are successful in Sky Bet League 1.

Last weekend, Cassidy’s second-half strike almost clinched an opening day three points at Deepdale despite Notts being written off by the bookies ahead of kick-off. 

The Magpies made life difficult for the Lilywhites and looked a much tougher outfit to beat on the road than at times in 2013.14.

Cassidy is willing to dig deep again against Fleetwood Town if required but hopes to take the game to the League 1 new boys and give the Meadow Lane faithful plenty to get excited about. 
 
“You’ve got to do whatever it takes to win and if that means disrupting the game and slowing things down then you’ve got to do it,” he told The Mag. 

“At home, it’s a bit different because you’ve got your fans with you and you can be a bit more attacking.
 
“At the end of the day, you’ve got to win games and if we win by playing how we did on Saturday, then so be it. 

“But, if we play like that ever week, we’ll have a right good chance of a successful season.”
 
He added: “We just need to be confident on the ball - just like we were in the second half against Preston. 

“We need to get forward more and take our chances, because we missed a few against Preston and we could’ve been out of sight. 
 
“With a home crowd behind us, we can hopefully push forward more and be more of an attacking force. 

“We caused what was classed as an upset at Preston and hopefully we’ll do the same in the league this year.”
