Curle: A Never-Say-Die Attitude

30 September 2012

Manager pleased with how his team stuck to the gameplan...

Keith Curle felt that his side deserved to take a point from Saturday's clash with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The Blades, who are yet to be defeated this season, took the lead early into the second half through frontman Dave Kitson but Lee Hughes came off the bench to give Notts a share of the spoils.

Curle was pleased with his team's performance, which extended the Magpies' unbeaten run to seven matches.

Speaking on Magpie Player, he said: “Make no mistake, it’s a very difficult place to go and play.

“We had to try and quieten the crowd, play the game at our tempo and slow down any momentum that they had.

“That meant we had to try and keep the ball away from them as much as possible, and it the first half I thought we did that.

“In the second half, they got the break and got the goal, but, again, it was great character, great commitment, great belief from our lads.

“We stuck to our game plan and it was a great ball in from Judgey, and Lee Hughes, that’s where he comes alive, in the box.”

He continued: “There is a never-say-die attitude that’s growing game-by-game in the changing room.

“I don’t know how many games it is now away from home that we’re unbeaten but we don’t roll over.”
