Notts County goalkeeper Stuart Nelson spoke to BBC Radio Nottingham after his side's 1-0 League One defeat at home to Carlisle, Nelson disappointed that the eight match unbeaten run the Magpies were on has come to an end :

" I am disappointed because the team has been on a good run, and I have come back into the team, only a little run, just a couple of games, and I had only really conceded a penalty since I had come back. So, it was disappointing to concede today. But, all the lads in there are very disappointed, the run has come to an end, but luckily we have got a game on Tuesday where we can bounce back.

" I think as a team we defended well again as we have in so many of the last few weeks. We restricted them to the one save that I made in the second-half and a couple where I have come out at someone's feet, but apart from that the boys have defended different class from the back. We were knocking at the door really for the whole of the game but we just couldn't convert any of our chances.

" You can always be disappointed but the positive thing to come out of today is that we did have chances, we did create chances, and a team that is creating chances is always going to be a good team and is always going to have something to build on for future weeks. Because, as long as those chances are there, there is always going to be someone to put them away.

" Some days it doesn't happen, some days they just don't go over the line. Alan Gow's first one in the first-half where it was going in and then it just bent away, and then the one in the second-half where the keeper (Adam Collin) has made a great save, on other days that bends in and the keeper doesn't get a hand on it. That is just how it goes in football.

" He has made some good saves and it has obviously ultimately won them the game. I think I came up here earlier in the season after a 1-0 win and said to you that it is the perfect result, and that is what the keeper will be happy with. He has kept his clean sheet and his team has scored one and they have won 1-0 away from home, so they will be delighted and he did make some good saves, you have got to give him credit for that.

" We are going to Hartlepool on Tuesday now but they won't be easy to beat. We are going into their backyard to try to get a result but we have still got to be positive. Yes, we have lost today and it was eight games unbeaten but one loss isn't going to end that feeling we have got. We have got to turn it back round, it is only Tuesday so that is not far away and that is a positive thing as well. We need to keep creating the chances and I am sure on Tuesday we will put them away. "
