John Sheridan not making excuses for poor Notts County form

Joe Jones

John Sheridan has admitted that he is sick of Notts County's poor form and refuses to make excuses.

The Magpies fell to a second consecutive heavy league defeat on Saturday as they were ran ragged by struggling Newport County at Meadow Lane.

The 3-0 home defeat came a week after an embarrassing 4-0 thrashing at Blackpool, while a 2-0 win over non-league Boreham Wood in the FA Cup barely restored optimism prior to yesterday.

"It is worrying because of the way we are playing," Sheridan told the Nottingham Post. "I am not going to come out and make excuses – it was far, far, from good enough.

"Whatever is thrown at me and the players, we've got to accept it. It wasn't good enough at all.

We were missing one or two, but that's no excuse. It gave an opportunity for players to come in and perform and give me a problem by giving a good performance.

"Again, we were way off it. I am repeating myself, but it's not good enough.

"It's something I need to sort out very quickly because if not then we all know the consequences.

"I have to look at myself because I've picked a team that I thought would win the game.

"I've got to try to look after my players but I am getting sick of it. I am answering all the questions, but it's down to me because I am picking the team."

It's not good enough at all , its been this way for to long , different managers same outcome , so what is the problem ?? The players just simply aren't good enough , most are probably national league players , until a revamp of playing staff is undertake then this will continue , JS is a good manager at this level but the tools at his disposal are poor .
