Notts County have their ‘mojo’ back, says Carl Dickinson


Carl Dickinson insists Notts County have some of their “mojo” back and says their quality over the last two games proves they are no long ball team.

The Magpies were sensational in their 4-2 win over Bristol Rovers on Friday night as they came back from two goals down to win the FA Cup first round tie against all the odds.

The result came on the back of a 3-0 win against Newport and in both games Notts created a stack of chances which could have seen them score at least six or seven goals in each game.

With some opponents and their fans labelling Notts a long ball team, left-back Dickinson said recent victories proved they were anything but.

“Over the last few weeks I think people have seen that we have got a bit of our mojo back,” he said.

“Sometimes we get labelled a long ball team, but if you had come to watch the last two games you would see how much quality we have got.

“You would see how many chances we created and how we put teams under pressure here at Meadow Lane.

“It doesn’t hurt our feelings when people talk about long balls because at the end of the day it’s all about scoring goals and winning.

“Some might call it a long ball, we call it a long pass. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest.”

Notts’ victory over Rovers was one of the best performances in the FA Cup over the weekend and they will now await the second round draw on Monday night.

Dickinson said it was a comeback which ranked highly in his career given Notts were 2-0 down after 12 minutes.

“It’s definitely up there,” he said.

“It was a great reaction from us in the first half and to come in equal at half-time after being two down so early on was great.

“To then go on and dominate the second half, and create the chances that we did, it could have been six or seven.

“To do that against a team in the league above speaks wonders for where we are.”
