Chuffed for the fans

24 September 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan declared himself 'chuffed for the supporters' after today's 3-1 win over Leyton Orient.

It was the Magpies' first home league win of the season and Sheridan was delighted to provide the fans with a victory to celebrate on home soil.

He said: "It was an excellent performance from the players and I'm chuffed to bits for the supporters. They could see the energy and effort from our team and got right behind us again today. I thought they were excellent - really vocal.

"I thought the performance merited three points against a team that I fancy strongly to be up there at the end of the season. We mostly controlled the game and we got the goals at important times.

"At 2-0 I was very comfortable with the way we were going about the game. Obviously the sending off gives you a little bit of a scare - they get the goal - but then Aaron scores a brilliant goal to seal the victory."

A midweek trip to Exeter now looms large before Morecambe visit Meadow Lane next Saturday.

And the manager hopes the team, buoyed by today's win, can build momentum from this point.

He said: "I said (to the players) before the game 'If you get the results you want in the next three games you could find yourselves in a decent position next Saturday.'

"But Exeter's going to be a really tough game and Morecambe are doing well again. I don't take any team for granted.

"Only two weeks ago we were on a downer with the way we played against Accrington, and we're on a high today.

"When you're winning games it breeds confidence - everyone goes home happy. We've just got to keep winning games."
