Not at the races

10 September 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan admitted his side's performance against Accrington Stanley 'didn't merit any appreciation'.

The Magpies were beaten 2-0 at Meadow Lane and their manager was brutally honest in his appraisal.

Sheridan said: "I’m very disappointed with the way we went about the game. Sometimes it’s hard to understand how you give a performance like that.

"We were not at the races. We didn’t play well at all – we were well beaten. Unfortunately at this level these performances do come along – I hope there won’t be too many.

"I totally understand the supporters – the performance didn’t merit any appreciation.  We’re a lot better than what we showed today."

The defeat leaves Notts still searching for their first home league win of the season.

Sheridan said: "It’s up to me as a manager, and the players as well, to be strong and make things better by playing better and winning games at home.

"I’ve got to keep faith in my players – there’s no way I’ll turn my back on them – but I’ve told them I’m not going to stand for that performance.

"I expect a lot better, especially at home."
