Derry: We Continue To Make Strides

28 September 2014

Shaun Derry was delighted with his team who continued their great form away from home…

The Manager spoke to the local media shortly after the impressive 1-1 draw at Chesterfield on Saturday and again praised his squad.

Notts can now boast a four-game unbeaten run, the best defensive record in League One and continue to be unbeaten away from Meadow Lane.

Derry admitted that it was a back against the walls at times after the interval, but praised his goalkeeper Roy Carroll.

He told Magpie Player: "I'm proud of them. I sound like a broken record at times, saying the same things, but the lads in there are an absolute pleasure to work with. 

"The lads have the character and what a game that was.

"We got the first goal and perhaps should have scored a second at a crucial time, had half chances where we should have been a bit ruthless, but I've got no complaints today.

"Second half it was back against the walls and Chesterfield were magnificent. They deserved to get something out the game.

"I've got the best goalie in the league, the saves Roy Carroll made were Premier League class and that's why he's played at that level. 

"Blair (Adams) did well for us in a new position, I thought the balance was good for us."

The boss also praised the black and white army who made the short journey north up the M1.

He added: "I think the 1,200 fans stayed right until the end and it was great for the boys to give them a clap at the end and show their appreciation.

"It's not just the boys in the starting 11, but the whole squad who work hard at training, it's the coaching staff, it's the fans, it's the club.

"We continue to make strides and we are a team developing.

"It's a big week coming up. We've made sure we stayed unbeaten before Crewe and it's job done."
