Derry: Performance Not Good Enough, But We Went Until The Very End

21 December 2014

Manager Shaun Derry praised his sides's spirit...

Notts grabbed an equaliser in the final seconds against Rochdale to earn a point in a 2-2 draw.

The boss wasn't happy with the second half performance, but did praise his squad's spirit and never say die attitude.

He told Magpie Player: "It was an incredible finish, but we weren't good enough today. 

"In the first half we competed well and from the first piece of real quality football in that half, we managed to get a goal. 

"Then in the second half, we go into it with a game plan and it completely goes thrown out the window in the first few seconds.

"We were on the back foot and we didn't look after the ball at all. 

"But in the 95th minute, we went until the very end. That typifies us as a team.

"I can't comment on the goal as I've not seen it yet, but I am delighted.

"I'm chuffed to get that late goal. We kept it alive in the box and put bodies where it hurt and we didn't do that enough throughout the game.

"We lacked a little desire, but the final passage of play we kept it alive and got a goal.

"We will walk away from Rochdale and I'm delighted that this unbeaten run continues."
