Kevin Nolan gutted to see Shaun Derry lose Cambridge United job

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan was sad to see Shaun Derry lose his job as Cambridge United manager but has tipped the former Notts County boss to be back in the game sooner rather than later.

The Magpies head to the Abbey Stadium on Tuesday to face the U's, who are currently being managed by Joe Dunne on a caretaker basis.

Cambridge have experienced an upturn in form under Dunne, having won two games under the 44-year-old and Nolan believes they will be tough opponents.

“It will be tough because Cambridge have hit a bit of form,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“I was gutted to see Shaun lose his job and I haven’t had chance to call him yet, but I will. We are close off the field so it’s unfortunate what happened.

“But their team are doing well and we have to go there and put a stop to that.

“I don’t think Cambridge have changed too much because when I last spoke to Dezza in the office after the game at our place, he was talking about how he had to patch up a lot of things.

“He was finding it difficult because a lot of his experienced and top players were out.

“But he will be back in the game no doubt because of how good he is as a manager.

“We have done our homework on them and nothing much has changed because the majority of the players were all under Shaun anyway.

“They might tweak a few things here and there, but very rarely will it massively change.

“But they will be full of confidence because they have won two on the bounce.

“It’s going to be difficult, but if we stick to our game plan I feel we can can come away with another positive result.”
