Sheehan: "We're A Big Team For This Division"

2 November 2015

Man of the match Alan Sheehan spoke to BBC's Colin Slater after scoring the winner in the Magpie's 2-1 victory over Portsmouth.

"When the ball goes into the area you're told to aim for the back post, and obviously it crept in, so I was delighted to get my first goal back here and it turned out to be a big goal in the end."

" I can't say anything but praise the whole team, and everybody from start to finish gave a 110% against a very very good team who had a lot of possession today, but I thought we stayed strong today and we rode it out - it was an absolutely brilliant win for us."

"We haven't crumbled the last couple of games and you're only as good as your last few games. We had two good points away at Exeter and Bristol and a great win today, with a good crowd - yeah, it was a good day at the office!"

"It gets to the stage where obviously we're picking a point here and there but we said beforehand 'Look, we're a big team for this division, we've got the team to do what we want, so it's time we started pushing up the league table'."

With the defender having returned to Notts on a loan deal that sees him at the club til Christmas, Sheehan admits he's enjoying his time back at Meadow Lane: "I've no regrets about coming back. I'm 100% focused on it here, it's great at the moment and hopefully we can keep pushing up the league. It's enjoyable at the moment, especially when you win games - it's very enjoyable."

Notts will head to semi professional Salford City FC this Friday in the FA Cup, and Sheehan knows that the Magpies can't get complacent when it comes to facing the Class of 92 owned underdogs:

 "Obviously we turn our focus to Salford straight away, it's an FA cup team so everybody starts level and I think it's important we show them respect and we go out and try and play our game and obviously win."

" We can't take anything for granted at this stage, we've got to battle our way through games because the team who've worked the hardest gets the end product."
