First team manager Chris Kiwomya has told his players to prove that they are worthy of being part of the Notts County squad in the new season.
Kiwomya is yet to make decisions over his players’ futures and insists that it is not too late for them to earn new deals.
Notts take on second placed AFC Bournemouth this weekend with the hope of bouncing back from defeats to promotion chasing Brentford and Yeovil Town.
The boss is eager for the Magpies to end the season strongly, starting with a positive result at the Goldsands Stadium, and wants to see the kind of commitment worthy of the black and white stripes.
“I’d like to get wins because winning breeds confidence and, most importantly, that’s what I want to do,” he said in his pre-match press conference.
“It’s probably one or two players’ last games for Notts County so I want them to give the fans a good impression and leave on a good note.
“There might be some of those players that might stay so they’ve got to fight for their contracts so that I can give them that contract.
“There’s still three or four players that I’ll look at, because I never say never.
“Somebody might go out there in the next two games and really find their goal-scoring boots or bring something else to their game that I haven’t seen so far.
“I haven’t spoken to any of the players [about their futures], all I’ve asked is for them is to give 100 per cent for the supporters, try to win games and stick together as a group.”
