Entertainment expected

26 August 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan envisages an 'entertaining game' at Crawley, with his side targeting a second successive away win.

Sheridan guided Notts to an impressive victory at Hartlepool last weekend and now has another three points in his sights, although he recognises Crawley will present tough opposition.

The manager said: "They have some good players who I've managed before and they have got off to a really good start.

"They're the home team so they'll think it's an opportunity to get three points, but they'll be wary after watching us.

"We'll be going there to try and win. Hopefully it'll be an entertaining game."

Jonathan Forte picked up a knock at Hartlepool and Sheridan says he has a 50% chance of making this weekend's game.

Adam Campbell played a key role in the victory and, after being impressed by his performance, the manager plans to include him once again for the trip to Sussex.

Sheridan said: "He's a good player - a very intelligent footballer. He knocked on my door and asked why he wasn't playing - I told him.

"He's trained well, got his opportunity last week, didn't let himself down and he'll be playing on Saturday. That's the response I want from any player.

"He probably didn't expect to play last week but I know he's from up there (the north-east) and his family will have wanted to go and watch him, so on the Friday I told him he was playing.

"I thought he was probably our best player. I want him to be bright and really believe in himself."
