Notts County captain Hayden Mullins said the team threw the three points away as the Magpies are relegated to League Two following a 3-1 defeat to Gillingham...
Notts had lead the game 1-0 which would have been enough to remain in League One, but an 88th minute equaliser from John Egan and two further goals in injury time saw the side lose 3-1.
Mullins told Magpie Player: “We had it in our own hands, and we threw it away. Obviously it is going to be a downbeat dressing room and a downbeat summer.
“Now we have been relegated to League Two, it is a big massive disappointment not just for us players, but the fans, staff and everyone connected with the club.
“The players share the same disappointment as everyone. Knowing that we had it in our own hands, in that situation we know it has not been good enough this second half of the season. We take responsibility for that.
“Any relegation is bad. Knowing that we start a division down is a massive disappointment knowing that we haven’t done enough on the pitch. Everything at this moment is a massive disappointment. It is going to be a tough summer.
“For the next couple of weeks it is going to be a horrible, especially as we were relegated on the last day of the season. We were winning, it was in our own hands, there’s not many worse ways to go. At the end of the day, we have to come back next pre-season ready to go.”
