Jamal Campbell-Ryce feels the Magpies need to get back to what they are best at if they are to respond positively to the weekend’s loss.
Notts were defeated 2-1 by promotion rivals Brentford on a disappointing afternoon at Meadow Lane.
Although Notts started out well, the second half saw the team resorting to the long ball far too often.
Campbell-Ryce feels that County need to stick with the passing game to get the most out of the attacking players within the squad.
The winger hopes to see that put back into force for Tuesday night’s FA Cup with Budweiser meeting with Rotherham United at Meadow Lane.
He told Magpie Player: “In the second half on Saturday, I thought we sat way too deep and we didn’t pass the ball anywhere near as well as we should do.
“We went way too direct and the bottom line was that it wasn’t good enough.
“Where going to cause teams damage by getting the ball down and playing.
“We need a massive response on Tuesday night,” he continued.
“I’m not going to accept performances like that and none of my peers will.
“We need to be better and we all know that, so hopefully we’ll get a good reaction and a good result against Rotherham.”
