Notts Respond In Style

9 February 2014

Manager Shaun Derry felt that Notts County’s 3-0 win over Coventry City was his side’s most ‘complete performance’ since he took charge in November.

Notts dominated from the first minute and gained a two-goal lead through a Hayden Mullins header and a Jimmy Spencer wonder strike. 

Alan Sheehan secured the points late on from the spot, as Notts ended a run of three consecutive defeats to lift themselves out of the Sky Bet League 1 bottom four.

Derry was thrilled with his team, who played with confidence against a Coventry outfit that would have been placed in the Play-Off places prior to kick-off had they not been deducted 10 points. 

He said: “I was pleased with the way we reacted from three real bad defeats, we didn’t want to get too concerned by the fact that we’d lost three on the bounce.

“You kind of go into the home games and put a little bit of pressure on yourselves and I felt we didn’t play with pressure on us and all of the work we did in the week we transferred into the matchday.

“That really makes me happy seeing that because it’s pointless doing your work in the week if you can’t do it on a Saturday and I though there were some really good performances as well.”

He added: “I think that was our best display in general since we came in.

“We’ve had some fantastic results, some great wins, but if you look at the whole performance, that was a proper, proper team performance.

“We let ourselves down massively here at the last home game and I thought the lads wanted to show what they were made of.”
