John Sheridan "won't put blame" on Vadaine Oliver for missed penalty

Joe Jones

Notts County manager John Sheridan has refused to blame Vadaine Oliver for failing to convert a late penalty in Saturday's League Two goalless draw against Luton Town.

A foul on Haydn Hollis in the final ten minutes of the game gave the Magpies a chance to edge ahead, but goalkeeper Christian Walton was able to make the save and help the visitors to a point.

"I am disappointed we haven't come away with three points and for any neutral watching the game they would have seen two decent teams," Sheridan told the Nottingham Post.

"They probably had a bit more possession in the first half, but they are a good side.

"But we came away with a clean sheet and I think it was a great effort from the players.

"We had them on the back foot a lot more than we did in the first half.

"If we had scored the first goal I think we would have gone on to win the game.

"We had the chance with the penalty, but I won't put blame on anybody for missing a penalty.

"But if we had scored from it then we would have won and that would have been deserved for the way we went about the game.

"The fans were excellent and got right behind the team. It's a crying shame that we haven't got the points."
