Righting the wrongs

Brisley previews Barnet trip

9 February 2018

Notts County defender Shaun Brisley says the Magpies are looking forward to getting back to league action this weekend.

Kevin Nolan’s team travel to the capital to take on bottom-of-the-league Barnet on the back of their Emirates FA Cup defeat at Swansea City.

And Brisley does not expect there to be any hangovers from Notts’ trip to south Wales.

“It’s one of those things,” said Brisley. “You have to try and put it to the back of your mind quickly and right the wrongs on Saturday.

“We’ve got a good turnaround of games in a short period of time to put it right. Obviously, it was very disappointing to bow out of the FA Cup in that way but it’s gone now – there’s nothing we can do other than look forward to Saturday.

“It will be a totally different game, and a difficult one. We saw Forest Green come here earlier in the season when they were bottom of the league and it took us until the 96th minute to produce an equaliser against them.

“Everyone is fighting for three points in this league.”

Notts signed young defender Ben Hall on loan from Brighton last month and Brisley, along with his central defensive partner Richard Duffy, has welcomed his arrival.

“It’s healthy competition,” said Brisley. “He’s a really nice lad who works hard and is champing at the bit for his opportunity.

“It’s been up to me and Duffer to keep performing and his presence in the building will only gee us on to keep performing better and better each week.”
