Notts County could not beat a pub team says John Sheridan

"We were totally inept,” said Sheridan

"We could be playing the Red Lion on Tuesday and if we play like today any team will beat us.

"I've been a manager for probably over 500 games now and that is probably the worst performance under my management," the former Oldham, Chesterfield, Plymouth Argyle and Newport County boss said.

"That is harsh for me to say, but I will not accept anything that went on today.

"We were a shambles. We didn't deserve anything and we didn't create a chance. If we are not at the races and perform like today we won't win any games for the rest of the season.

"I hope they realise they need to step up big time - if they don't, then there is something wrong with them."
