Developing consistency

29 September 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan hopes to see his side continue to develop consistency this weekend.

The Magpies are looking to extend their winning run to four matches when Morecambe visit Meadow Lane on Saturday.

And, while his side are in good form, Sheridan isn't satisfied yet.

He said: "It's a funny league. I've said many a time, 'consistency' is the magic word. There's only two points between us and 12th place, so it's very tight.

"We've seen, with us winning the last three games, it gets you in a healthy position. We're in the mix, where we want to be, and it's important we carry on to try and stay up there.

"We're up against a good team in Morecambe. I love the way the manager works - I think he's done a brilliant job to get them where they are at the moment.

"I watched them against Barnet and they were excellent - they could have been two or three-nil up in the first half. They're nice and bright going forward, they've got some good players and I fully respect them.

"They've started the season really well so I expect a tough game."

Key to Notts' recent good form has been the exploits of Jon Stead, who has scored five goals in three games, including two in Tuesday's win at Exeter.

Sheridan said: "He's just playing with confidence. I don't think he played great the other night but he got his goals - he's in the right place at the right time.

"They were probably his two easiest goals because he usually works hard to create them himself.

"He's in good form and I think he believes he's going to score in every game he plays."
