A very poor second half

13 August 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan didn’t hide his frustration with his side’s second-half performance in this afternoon’s 1-1 draw with Stevenage.

Jon Stead’s equaliser following Ben Kennedy’s opener sparked Notts into life after a slow start and they went into the break largely in the ascendancy.

But the home side failed to trouble the visitors after the break – and their manager was unhappy with a ‘very poor’ second half.

Sheridan said: “The second half was a shocking performance and I’m not happy one bit. We made it look very difficult and we were causing ourselves a massive problem. 

“I’m not having it – Stevenage totally dominated the second half.

“There’s no danger that what happened last season will happen this season with me – I will sort it out.”

Sheridan was, however, happy with how his team responded to Stevenage’s eighth-minute goal.

He said: “One plus from the game was that I thought we responded really well and for 25 minutes of the first half we had good chances to go into half-time in the lead.

“It was a good goal from Steady.”
