Manager Ricardo Moniz began his Notts County managerial career with an away point…
The Magpies scored late on thanks to striker Garry Thompson at Yeovil Town’s Huish Park to ensure an important draw on Saturday.
The new boss praised his team after they battled back after a lacklustre first half.
He told Magpie Player: “I will always protect the players because I am always responsible.
“I wasn’t satisfied with certain positions, it is nothing personal and after we changed it, we had much more dominance. We created more scoring chances in the second half.
“The penalty was not given, I believe it was on Spencer and that move started with a fantastic play from Jamal (Campbell-Ryce).
“When he came on, we had more depth, we had more speed, more threat. Without these kind of players and we spoke about it on my first day.
“He complemented Graham Burke and he’s a young guy who really showed him his creativity. He had a fantastic shot and of course Jordan Williams did a fantastic job coming into defence.
“I saw something from the youth players today, how mature and their presence.
“We came back second half with that confidence to score the goal. That is a very important point for the next five games.
“I think Tuesday when everybody is fit, we can be very confident for the last five games.
“We have had only three training sessions. It is not realistic to know who is really in a game situation, but after today we all saw what our best eleven is.
“It is a battle and today showed how tight it is. After the second half, and we all saw it, I was very happy.”
