Kristian Dennis says the Notts players were disappointed not to earn three points at the Globe Arena on Saturday.

The striker scored the opening goal of the game but it was cancelled out by Morecambe substitute Kevin Ellison in the 88th minute, meaning the Magpies had to settle for a draw.

Dennis was frustrated his header wasn't enough to earn his side an important win.

“We did well as a unit and defended strongly to limit their chances so it’s devastating to concede late on," he said after full-tiime.

“We’re one point better off but we’re gutted because we should have seen it out and had all three.”

After a challenging start to life at Notts following his summer move, Dennis is pleased to be playing regularly and feels his performances have improved as a result.

“I’ve had a run of games which is what I needed and now I’ve started to score goals,” said the striker.

“I got the hat-trick against Doncaster in the Checkatrade Trophy and that helps boost your confidence but it’s also little things like a good touch here and there.

“The biggest thing is playing regularly, though. As soon as I came here I pulled my thigh so I was playing catch-up but now I’ve had my chance and scored some goals so hopefully I continue to play.”
