McCann: I'm no diver

Notts County defender Austin McCann has dismissed suggestions that he dived to get Mansfield Town midfielder Matt Hamshaw sent off during the 2-2 derby draw at Field Mill. Hamshaw saw red early in the second half of the game for a second bookable offence, with the Magpies taking advantage to battle back from two goals down to earn a point. McCann told County's official club website: "I think I expected their guy to say that to protect himself a little, but I have a cut down my leg where he caught me and I can definitely say I didn't dive. "I'm a little disappointed with what he said, but that's nothing to do with me. "To be fair he was playing well for them and he caused us plenty of problems throughout the first half."
