John Sheridan: 'Notts County would not have beaten a pub team'

Joe Jones

John Sheridan has ripped into Notts County, claiming their 4-0 loss at Blackpool was the worst of his managerial career, and that they would not have beaten a pub team with that performance.

The Magpies were torn apart at Bloomfield Road on Saturday as Kyle Vassell bagged a brace and set up goals for Colin Daniel and Jamille Matt, while Vadaine Oliver was sent off for the visitors.

"We were totally inept," Sheridan told BBC Radio Nottingham.

"We could be playing the Red Lion on Tuesday and if we play like today any team will beat us.

"I've been a manager for probably over 500 games now and that is probably the worst performance under my management.

"That is harsh for me to say, but I will not accept anything that went on today.

"We were a shambles. We didn't deserve anything and we didn't create a chance. If we are not at the races and perform like today we won't win any games for the rest of the season.

"I hope they realise they need to step up big time - if they don't, then there is something wrong with them."

Notts, who have won just once in their past six League Two matches, face National League side Boreham Wood in an FA Cup first-round replay on Tuesday.
