Dearden Livid After Shocking Defensive Display

Dearden was once again angered with more shambolic defending which cost Notts in their 3-2 loss at Mansfield on Saturday.

"When a team is 3-0 down they know they have nothing to lose and start doing things they should be doing at 0-0, which disappoints me" Dearden told the clubs website.

"Good teams don't come back they play well from the beginning, and instead of chasing the game you should be 2-0 up."

Notts' next 3 games see them come up against three of the divisions high flying sides, with Notts facing Bristol City, Oldham and Luton Town over the coming weeks. An improvement at the back is desparately needed, or Notts could end up coming out of those games with 0 points.
