Cassidy: Important To Get Off The Mark At Home

3 September 2014

Striker Jake Cassidy scored his second goal in Notts colours to wrap up a 2-0 over Mansfield Town...

On-loan striker Jake Cassidy scored his second goal of the season as Notts made it through to the second round of the JPT.

A low strike after the the interval, made sure Notts were in the hat in the next round.

The Wolves forward told Magpie Player: "It's important to get off the mark at home as early as possible and thankfully tonight I did that, maybe I was a bit lucky in the build-up to it, but I will take them all day. 

"I just tried to put it across the keeper and as long as you hit the target you've always got a chance of scoring.

"I think it's the first time I've progressed past round one in this competition, Notts knocked Wolves out last year and it was a tough test against a big, physical Mansfield side and thankfully we are through.

"We wanted to bounceback and there's no better way to do that, than beat your rivals in a derby. I think we responded well and bounced back well.

"The heads weren't down in training on Monday and everyone was focussed. I think the game was won on Monday with the mindset we had."
