Youth team coach looking for his side to learn from their mistakes...
Notts County youth team are looking to improve upon last weekend’s performance against York City.
Head of youth Mick Leonard described the 3-1 defeat as ‘disappointing’ but the Magpies have a chance to make amends when they travel to Bradford City on Saturday morning.
Youth team coach Brett Adams missed last weekend’s game following the birth of his daughter.
However, he has watched the match video and is looking forward to seeing the young Magpies learn from their mistakes.
He told Magpie Player: “It was disappointing for the lads to lose after the way they conducted themselves against Hull the week before.
“I’ve watched the video and we had a right good go at York, we tried to play and we also created some chances that we should have taken.
“The game could have been a lot different if it wasn’t for certain mistakes and looking at the video we’ve tried to rectify some of those mistakes in training this week.
“Fingers crossed they won’t happen this week but going away to Bradford – a physically strong, big team – it’s going to be difficult again.
“We’ve said from the start of the season, we’re going to be patient again, because if you remember from last year it took until Christmas until we got a pattern going.”
He added: “It’s great to see when you look at the first team bench and you see Fabian Spiess, Jake Wholey, Greg Tempest got on the bench against AEK Athens.
“So to see the products of what we’re trying to produce, we’re going to be patient with these lads so that they can maybe have that path.”
