Wow. Now I have had time to drink it all in and let the dust settle somewhat, the sense of pride that I held upon the full-time whistle hasn’t faded in the slightest. We travelled to Meadow Lane expecting a difficult game against an organised Notts County side, but we simply blew them away. Yes, there were perhaps a few more contentious refereeing decisions on the night, but we can only control the controllables. To a man, we more than matched them and the result was fully deserved.
From start to finish, we were excellent, and we thoroughly deserve to be heading to Wembley on Bank Holiday Monday. Every single player deserves huge credit for their part in the victory, but the supporters were formidable themselves – the atmosphere created was quite special. We all know that the Sky Blue Army are desperate for success, and you could sense that last night. The level of unity was quite astounding which made it feel like a home fixture.
