Terry Hawkridge: 'I wouldn't take League Two playoff spot if offered now'

Joe Jones

Terry Hawkridge has admitted that he would not accept a League Two playoff spot now were he offered it and would rather go all out for automatic promotion.

Notts County were in the top three of the division for a large chunk of the season and, even though they slipped out, they sit third going into Saturday's game at Forest Green Rovers.

There are 10 games left for the Magpies to re-cement their position in the top three and Hawkridge is eager for his side to come out on top in the games against several of their fellow promotion chasers.

“If you offered me a playoff spot now I wouldn’t take it,” he told the Nottingham Post.

“The lads were saying that we have worked so hard this year, we don’t want to let it slip at the last hurdle.

“We all still think we can get in there (top three) as it’s still very tight. We’ve got to keep winning and hope that other teams fall away I guess.

“We’ve got Wycombe, Mansfield, Accrington and Luton all to come which are big games. But it is the likes of Forest Green away that are just as important.

“It’s so tight and that’s the good thing. If we win all our games we could finish top, but I just think we have to concentrate on each game as it comes.”
