Harry Kewell admits Notts County delivered "horrific performance" at Bury


Harry Kewell has admitted that Notts County were "very, very poor" in their 4-0 loss at Bury and will be desperate to make amendments following the "horrific performance".

The Shakers were impressive at Gigg Lane while Notts were lacklustre, a combination which meant for a one-sided game in which the hosts ran riot and scored two goals per half.

“We were poor throughout the whole match,” Kewell told the Notts website. “We knew what Bury were good at and had a process in place to counteract their style but we didn’t do it.

“We looked good in training all week but what we did at Gigg Lane did not reflect the work we had done to prepare. We were very, very poor. The boys have to take responsibility and hopefully it was just an off day.”

“What we did out there was a poor excuse for defending. We sat off them and gave them an open path through to our goal.

“The idea was for a man to sit in the middle of the park and cut their attacks off but it never happened.

“We were slow, sluggish and didn’t pick up any second balls and Ross Fitzsimons was probably the only player who did what was expected of him today.

“I give my players opportunities but they weren’t at the races today. I’ll be re-watching this horrific performance and looking at where we need to make amendments.

“I think David Vaughan did well coming off the bench, and Kristian Dennis put himself about when he was introduced.

“Thankfully we have another game coming up in a couple of days where we can put this right.”
