Momentum building

27 September 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan wants to see his side continue to build momentum following tonight's win at Exeter City.

Sheridan oversaw a 2-0 victory at St James Park, courtesy of two goals from Jon Stead, and hopes his side's latest hard-fought victory will propel his players to future successes.

He said: "I think you could see in the first half that we're a strong outfit. We got the game won.

"To be fair to Exeter they came into the game in the second half. They changed their shape and gave us problems.

"But, when they did give us problems, there were some excellent blocks - you could see the desire to get our first clean sheet. I'm pleased that monkey's off our back, but the most important thing is to get the three points which puts us in a position we want to be.

"We're closer to the top of the table and everyone's chuffed to bits. We've just got to keep this momentum going."

Notts, positioned fifth in Sky Bet League Two, now head into this weekend's match at Meadow Lane with a fourth consecutive victory in their sights.

Sheridan said: "We move on to a home game against Morecambe - a team who started really well.

"Confidence is pretty high and we go in with the belief that we're going to win - and that's what I want the supporters to believe, and the players more than anyone.

"We don't get carried away - I think one or two of the lads looked a bit tired in the second half. We'll get as much rest as we can going into Saturday's game - but tonight was an excellent result."
