Manager Shaun Derry would like to express his feelings about reports in the local media overnight…
The Notts boss Derry told the Official Site: “Having read the Nottingham Post today it reads that we are heaping pressure on Russell Slade.
“That is not the case. The quotes used were just a minor part of yesterday’s presser.
“To even suggest and think that Russell Slade is under any pressure is almost criminal.
“Russell is a good friend of mine. He’s a good friend of Greg’s and he’s been a huge confidant to both of us throughout our career.
“He was my former Youth Team boss at Meadow Lane and he’s done a fantastic job everywhere he has gone.
“He’s a Nottingham man, a fantastic character and I’m looking forward to welcoming him back to Meadow Lane tonight.”
