Notts were 2-0 down at half time to the struggling Hatters, but a 2nd half fightback by The Magpies somehow saw them take all 3 points and vitally move up to 15th in the table.

"We will have to be a lot better than that, I am not sure if it was the worst 45 minutes of football of the season, but it was certainly close," Dearden told the Evening Post.

"You have to give the lads tremendous credit for bouncing back in the manner that they did.

"But they don't half like to put me through it.

"There was possibly only one player who came out of that first half with any credit, the goalkeeper, Steve Mildenhall.

"To be fair he probably kept us in it, because it probably should have been 4-0 at the break. We couldn't have complained if it had been, because we were awful."
