Richo reserves special praise for Deeney

Last updated : 01 January 2005 By Richard Brown

A new year and a warming feeling to see out the old, cold ambience of 2004 as Glynn Hurst and Chrissy Palmer helped bring in the new year with three oh so valuable points for the Magpies’ relegation troubles.

Deeney saves the day
Although, on yet another day when the importance of stability between the sticks, Richardson took the time out to outline the worthy performance of the, as described by local press, Saul ‘star of the show’ Deeney.

"Saul has had another good game with a few saves to make in the first half," Richardson said, following the victory."

"There was one great one-handed save that he seemed to claw out and all credit to him because he didn't feel too well before the game."

"He is playing really well at the moment, he has been outstanding."

Richardson also spoke highly of the return of top-scorer, Glynn Hurst to the side.

"We haven't scored for three games which was disappointing. I brought Glynn back and I thought he responded really well and took the goal well."

Notts go into the Bank Holiday Monday fixture at home to Rochdale on the back of run of just one defeat at the ‘Lane in their last six games. Stay posted for more action and reaction over the coming days.
