Backe calls for more incisiveness

County spurned plenty of chances at Meadow Lane as they drew a blank in front of their own crowd for the first time this season.

The Magpies threw everything at the visitors in the second-half, with Lee Hughes' volley brilliantly saved by the Shots stopper Jamiez-Ruiz , who also denied Johnnie Jackson with a double save.

Backe said: "We created more than enough half-chances to win the game but we struggled to break them down as they constantly got bodies in front of the goal.

"Although we controlled the game it's not easy to get the right tempo going when teams defend so deep but that's a challenge we need to be able to deal with in future.

"We struggled to find a way though past their defence and they stifled our movement going forward."
