Now that the ‘home hoodoo’ has been lifted, the Magpies can become a force at Meadow Lane, says Alan Judge.
Notts had been without a win on home soil since the 3-0 triumph over Portsmouth in September.
Judge netted the winner in Saturday’s clash with promotion rivals Swindon Town to lift County back into the Play-Off places.
The Irishman was delighted to give the home fans something to cheer about, following six home games without three points.
He told Magpie Player: “I think more than anything it’s relief, we needed that and the changing room was completely different from when we won our last game, to be honest.
“I think it can be the start of something but they didn’t come here and play like other teams and you’ve got to give Swindon a lot of praise for that.
“Teams usually come here and sit of us, and although it wasn’t the best of football games but you’re going to get that.
“They had a lot of chances and we rode our luck at times, and if we didn’t have Bartosz in net we could have been a few down.
“But, we had a lot of chances in the first half and we worked hard.
“Everybody has two sides to their game and I felt that we deserved it.”
