LANCASHIRE: WE HAD TO STICK TOGETHER

Olly Lancashire said that the message at half-time was to simply stick together after they had to turn around a half-time deficit away at Notts County.

Kane Hemmings put the hosts one-up at Meadow Lane just before half-time but a terrific run and finish from Steven Alzate and a Matt Taylor cross turned in by Magpies defender Jamie Turley put the Robins in front.

The club captain said that they’re togetherness was the key factor in turning the game around and seeing it out.

“Stick together, that has been the message all along. We had that belief – everyone pushed each other along.

“And in the second half, that’s exactly what we did.

“Winning breeds confidence. It doesn’t matter how well you are playing, if you’re not scoring goals or getting three points, it is hard.

“To come away from home and pick up three points is good.

“Hopefully we can now have a good week of training and kick on from that.”

It was a wet and windy day in Nottinghamshire and Lancashire felt his side dealt with the conditions well.

“We had a few good chances in the first half. We understood that conditions were pretty windy.

“We had the wind with us in the second half and we took the game to them – two or three minutes into the second half you could tell that the boys were at it.

“We definitely deserved at least two goals.

“When the wind is as strong as it was, going goal to goal in one direction with it behind you helps.

“It was tough in the first half, but we definitely had two or three very good opportunities.

“In the second half, we felt like after five minutes that this was going to be our day – three points is very pleasing.”

The defender was booed by sections of the home support on Tuesday, but has been as professional as ever this week.

“Obviously, Tuesday wasn’t nice but I’m a very honest person, a very honest professional and if they want to boo me, it’s up to them. I went to training as normal on Thursday, went about my business, and I know I’ve got a lot of support from my teammates and the manager so it is what it is. I’m big enough and strong enough to deal with it.

“I was lucky enough to grow up at Southampton with some very good senior pros and always remember them telling me: don’t listen to outside noise – positive or negative. There’s no good that can come from it. If you believe outside voices, then you’re in trouble.”
