Carl Dickinson: 'Notts County win over Bristol Rovers proof of progress'

Joe Jones

Carl Dickinson has described Notts County's 4-2 win over Bristol Rovers as proof of how far the Magpies have come in a short space of time.

Friday night's FA Cup first-round encounter at Meadow Lane began in the worst possible way for Notts, who found themselves two goals down by the quarter-hour mark.

However, Ryan Yates struck a quickfire brace - assisted by Dickinson for both goals - to edge the hosts level, before Jon Stead and Jorge Grant completed the turnaround by full time.

"We were gutted with the first 15 minutes but we showed what we are all about after that," Dickinson told the official Notts site.

"We showed our togetherness, our spirit and our quality. It was fantastic from the boys. We reacted brilliantly.

"Once we got it back to 2-2 there was only going to be one winner. With some of the football we played in the second half and the chances we created, it could have been five or six.

"To beat a team from the league above, who will be comfortable at that level, shows how far we've come.

"If we can take that type of performance into the league I don't think many teams will beat us.

"We had a couple of results which didn't go too well for us but in the last few weeks we have got our mojo back.

"Sometimes we get labelled as a long-ball team but if you look at our past two games you will have seen how much quality we have."
