Boss Pleased With Resilience

25 November 2012

Keith Curle was proud of the way that his side fought for their lives to hold onto all three points on Saturday afternoon.

Alan Judge’s first half wonder-strike proved to be the difference, as Notts overcame Swindon Town with a 1-0 win at Meadow Lane.  

Goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski and the County rearguard were in fine form to keep the Robins at bay, particularly in the second period. 

Curle was delighted to see the Magpies record their first home win in two months and felt that they deserved it. 

He said: “I think the first half showed the football traits that we’re trying to bring into the football club, we played our style of football and it caused them problems.

“In the second half, we showed the resilience that we’ve got in our away form and we needed that in abundance, because they put us under pressure but were able to stand up to the task.

“The home win was important but the first thing I look for is the performance level, because if that’s right and we’re able to attain the right standards in the key areas that we’re looking for results will follow.

“I think everyone’s been saying we need those results at home with the away form that we’ve got, and we will be a threat in this division.

“I think we’re undefeated in six games now and that’s the start of a run to some degree.”
