John Sheridan praises impact of Notts subs in Grimsby game

Joe Jones

Notts County boss John Sheridan has praised his substitutes for helping the side claw back a 2-2 draw against Grimsby Town in Saturday's League Two game at Meadow Lane.

Shaun Pearson and Omar Bogle powered the visitors into a two-goal lead by the hour mark, but Jonathan Forte and Aaron Collins helped the Magpies come back to get a point.

Sheridan said after the game: "I thought we were a bit flat in the first half and I didn't think we were at the races.

"Full credit to Grimsby for that because I thought they were on the front foot a lot more than we were.

"They were picking things up a lot quicker than we were and unfortunately we went a goal down.

"But the two lads up front were a real handful and we couldn't deal with it.

"However we started the second half really well and got on top before giving away a shambolic goal.

"You think at 2-0 down it's a mountain to climb, but we responded really, really, well.

"The substitutes came on and changed the game. We peppered them and got them on the back foot.

"In the end I am gutted we have not won the game. The fans appreciated how we tried to get back into the game, so full respect to them."
