John Sheridan confident of Notts County promotion push

Joe Jones

Notts County managed John Sheridan has claimed that his side is more than capable of winning promotion from League Two thanks to the recruitment of players with strong personalities who have achieved success in the past.

The Magpies fell short last season, finishing in the bottom half of the table after relegation from League One, but the new boss has made a number of signings with experience and leadership qualities.

"I think it's important we get strong personalities in the dressing room," the former Oldham Athletic boss told the Nottingham Post.

"I am not really bothered about what happened last season. It's gone and I don't want the fans to think about it. I want to look forward. I am a really positive person.

"I really do believe we will be successful in competing for the play-offs and promotion. That's what I am drilling into my players and some of the players I have brought in have done that (won promotion).

"They have a good background. They are strong personalities. When you are a player, the last thing you want is to keep hearing the manager's voice. When I was a player it used to drive you mad.

"I've got personalities there who are not afraid of saying what they feel although it's got to be in the right way."

JS is saying all the right things and speaking very well, I would hope that this type of attitude will rub off onto his players - yet its looking pretty good. We just need to ensure we start the season well, pre-season doesn't matter - get the fitness up and players match sharp. Sign a couple more players, then let's see how it goes.
