Pleased for the fans

21 August 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan declared himself 'pleased for the supporters' after today's win at Hartlepool.

Notts came from behind to win 2-1, with Louis Laing and Jon Stead's goals both coming in front of the 216 travelling Magpies.

And Sheridan was happy to see the fans' journey rewarded with a first win of the season.

The manager said: "I'm pleased for the supporters - they got right behind the team today.

"We knew the importance of getting three points and, coming from a goal behind, it's good character - even in the Plymouth game we came back strongly. Fair play to the players. I'm just pleased that their efforts were rewarded with the result we were after.

"We could easily have scored three or four today. We've had really good opportunities to do a lot better but we got two good goals."

Hartlepool came into the game in free-scoring form but, after overcoming today's tricky test, Sheridan hopes his players can now develop some consistency in their performances and results.

He said: "Hartlepool are a decent team - they scored three at Crewe. I knew it would be a good test and it's always a difficult place to come.
 
"We've just got to continue this by trying to win as many games as quickly as possible and get in and around where we want to be.

"It's a really tight division - you don't know who's going to beat who. The magic word is consistency.

"If we get the three points next week at Crawley it gets us back on track a little bit. It's another tough game but we go there confident."
