Jamie Fullarton: 'Notts players showed character against Accrington'

Joe Jones

Notts County manager Jamie Fullarton has praised all of his players for the character they showed in pegging Accrington Stanley back to within a goal in Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat at the Crown Ground.

Three down by the 51-minute mark, the Magpies struck twice through substitutes Ronan Murray and Adam Campbell as they mounted real hopes of getting a point in Lancashire.

Fullarton said: "You can't just isolate the two players that came on. I think there was another nine on there that helped with the contribution in the second half, for us to go and score the two goals and get ourselves in touching distance of getting back in the game.

"How we started the second half gave us an insight that we were capable of coming back into the game and it was encouraging that we keep believing and pushing forward.

"I think on reflection if you are going to give two goals away when you're away from home against one of the top teams in the league, then it's a very tough task for us.

“But I think the lads showed their character to get themselves into a position where with a little bit of pressure and forcing the issue in the last five minutes we could have maybe taken a draw."

Notts travel to Plymouth Argyle in their next game.
