There is no time for anyone in the Notts County squad to feel sorry for themselves after Saturday’s disappointment, says Alan Sheehan.
The Magpies threw away a two-goal lead and were defeated by fellow strugglers Shrewsbury Town at Meadow Lane, which makes the battle against the drop even tougher.
Sheehan, who has taken on the captain’s armband in the absence of the injured Dean Leacock, agreed with boss Shaun Derry’s post-match comments that the team was embarrassed by the result.
Rather than sulk about decisions that have not gone their way and what could have been, the County number three has seen a determination in his teammates to make amends in the upcoming clash with Play-Off contenders Rotherham United.
“There’s 13 games left and 39 points so there’s a lot to play for,” he explained.
“Saturday was a game that we needed to win but so is every game at this stage of the season.
“We’ve come back in and the manager hasn’t let us be down because there’s a big 13 games for the boys, the fans and the club.
“It’s not getting any easier but we’ve got to be men about it, stand up and be counted.
“There’s no hiding places for anybody in the dressing room.
“There’s a bunch of lads here that want to put things right and the sooner we get Saturday out of our system the better.”
