A pleasing finish

5 December 2016

Notts County defender Louis Laing was pleased to score but even happier to secure an Emirates FA Cup replay against Peterborough United yesterday.

The defender struck deep into second-half stoppage time to complete the Magpies' comeback from a two-goal deficit.

And, while he was pleased to get on the scoresheet, ensuring his side's inclusion in tonight's third-round draw gave Laing the greatest satisfaction.

He said: "It's always nice to score but it's better to get the replay. We've got another chance to get to the next round.

"It took a deflection but you take them however they come. I'm really pleased with it."

Laing admitted there was a hint of disappointment that Notts didn't secure victory, although he acknowledged the importance of a positive performance given the team's recent run.

He said: "After being 2-0 down it was a good result. I felt we could even have gone on and won the game - we had quite a few chances in the second half.

"The last month has been pretty tough on everyone but that's football - sometimes you go through these stages.

"There are still a lot of things we need to work on but, especially against a League One team, it was nice to get into the hat for the next round."
