Notts assistant boss Mark Crossley praises Stanley Aborah for "good response"

Joe Jones

Mark Crossley has praised Stanley Aborah for his "good response" to being left out of the Notts County lineup in the wake of Michael O'Connor's absence.

The Belgian made a rare start against Morecambe on Saturday, a game which was abandoned after 10 minutes because of torrential rain.

Aborah, who replaced rested captain O'Connor, went close to scoring on two occasions before ref Dean Whitestone called a halt to the League Two match.

"Michael picked up a groin strain at Exeter and it's only a strain," Crossley said.

"We just felt that – and Michael did too – that if he did play it could have put him back three or four weeks.

"We decided that Stanley has been champing at the bit to get back in the team so we felt it was the perfect time for Michael to step aside and Stan to come in.

"He started really brightly and showed a really good response to being out of the team.

"And that's what we want. We want a good squad with people ready to come into the team when needed."
