Curle: We'll Get Our Luck

27 December 2012

Notts County were unlucky not to take all three points from the Boxing Day clash with Shrewsbury Town, says Keith Curle.

Notts dictated much of the play at Greenhous Meadow but went behind against the run of play when former Magpie Luke Rodgers found the net with a neat finish. 

County struck back through goals from Lee Hughes and Jamal Campbell-Ryce, only for Jon Taylor to level late on with a heavily deflected cross. 

Curle was pleased with his team’s overall performance and felt that it warranted more. 

“We went back to basics and tried to make it as simple as possible for the players,” he said. 

“The players needed to be brave and needed to and they needed to make decisions, and I thought the performance levels were excellent.

“They scored against the run of play in the first half but we showed good mentality to continue what we were doing.

“A lot of hard work got the rewards, not only for the first goal but for the second goal as well.

“I thought we were comfortable in the game and I don’t think that Bart was really tested in the second half.

“With their second goal, it’s a cross that took a deflection and the ball’s swirling and it could have gone anywhere. 

“Unfortunately it wrong-footed Bart and the only place he could steer it was into his own net, rather than around the post.

“You get that bit of luck but I’m a believer that at the right time we will get the luck that we deserve.”
