Curle: We'll Learn From Mistakes

3 October 2012

Manager determined to put things right after defeat...

Notts County will learn from the errors made in Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat to Stevenage, says Keith Curle.

Despite Notts taking the lead courtesy of Jamal Campbell-Ryce’s 71st minute penalty, Boro were able to grab two late goals to take all three points away from Meadow Lane. 

Curle was hurt by the nature of the loss and the coaching staff will be working hard ahead of the weekend’s clash with Tranmere Rovers to put things right on the training ground. 

“I don’t like being beat, especially at home – mind, I haven’t been beaten away from home yet – but I don’t like it,” he told Magpie Player. 

“It was a difficult result to take but you have to give them credit, they came with a game plan.

“It wasn’t to play entertaining, expansive football, they came to nullify and frustrate, and they did that.

“But, again, we go a goal up and we’re comfortable in the game, they’re not causing us any problems at all, and then we have players vacating certain areas that are dangerous areas on the pitch.

“Not dealing with dangerous balls as we should do, balls out from the back - mandatory balls out from the back - you’ve got to deal with them.

“It’s a learning game, that’s what we’re all in the game for.”

He added: “I’m lucky, I’ve learnt my mistakes as a player and sometimes is more frustrating when you’re stood on the sideline and you see players making mistakes. 

“That’s why we’ve got myself and the two coaches, we’re there to educate the players, so when things happen we learn from them.”
