Manager pleased to see training ground work put into practice at Brunton Park…
Keith Curle was delighted with the way his team bounced back from two consecutive defeats on Saturday afternoon.
Notts fully deserved to claim all three points at Brunton Park after a dominant performance resulted in a 4-0 thumping of the Cumbrians.
In the build up to the match, the coaching staff had placed an emphasis on getting more players into the danger area and it paid dividends, with the Magpies’ first two goals coming from midfielders, Jeff Hughes and Neal Bishop.
“We’ve been working a lot throughout the week, because we’ve been coming up against systems of play that affected us and the way that we play,” explained Curle on Magpie Player.
“We’ve been working a lot on our midfield players making the extra striker and getting into the box.
“It’s very pleasing for myself and the two coaches, Colin Lee and Colin West, when our two goals are advanced, free-flowing midfield players making entries into the box and getting on the end of crosses.
“It shows that what your work on throughout the week does bear fruits at the end.”
Curle paid tribute to the fans that made the long trip north to cheer on the team and was pleased to send them home happy.
He continued: “The pleasing thing, I’ve got to mention, is the travelling supporters, they were excellent.
“It’s a difficult place to come to and I think they were rewarded for their efforts for coming here by a fantastic team performance.”
