Skipper on the scoresheet in convincing win...

SKIPPER, Andy Butler, got his name on the scoresheet at Notts County once again, but it could have been more.

Butler notched the winner at Meadow Lane last season and played his part in what was a convincing victory over our East Midlands’ rivals.

“I could have had two or three,” he admitted. “But I scored one and we won well, so I am happy!

“We slacked a little in the second half, but when you are so far ahead, it happens. In truth we could have scored ten such was the chances we had.

“To go away and have 30 attempts away from home is crazy. I’ve never been involved in anything like that before.

“We clicked today and everyone enjoyed it.  The pitch wasn’t as bad as it could have been. It was wet but firm and that suited our game.”

The headlines will go to Febian Brandy for his first half hat-trick and the captain admitted that he is delighted to have him back in the fold.

“He gives us that spark and unpredictability,” he added. “The lads are buzzing to have him back. He’s getting his match fitness back now and really firing.

“We can’t ask any more from him and it’s great to have him back here.

“The big games are coming up and he will have a big role to play in them. We’re looking forward to them and it was nice to see so many fans at the game to witness a five-star showing.

“We move on now to Tuesday’s game. We did well at their place earlier in the season but we are aware of their threats and won’t be taking anything for granted.”
