Kiwomya’s Forward Priority

2 April 2013

First team manager Chris Kiwomya has already started work on strengthening his strike force for next season.

Kiwomya felt that the Magpies’ lack of cutting edge cost them once more in the Bank Holiday Monday clash with Yeovil Town. 

Alan Judge grabbed Notts’ only goal of the game from the penalty spot but strikes from Paddy Madden and Matthew Dolan gave the Glovers a 2-1 win. 

County carved out a series of fine opportunities that could easily have resulted in reversed fortunes but, again, the home fans were left frustrated.

“In the summer, my priority will be in the forward area, because in the final third that’s we’ve come up short all season,” he said. 

“We fell short on that situation against Yeovil, the lads tried to play on a hard pitch, made the right decisions and we had three good chances to score.

“If you do that, then you’re talking about a different game.”

He continued: “There’s small margins in these games and if you look at both the Easter games we’ve lost by one goal.

“The difference has been that we haven’t had a goal-scorer to score in the box.

“In other departments we’ve been okay but it’s just that killer touch and we needed that on Monday.

“That was going to be the difference, because we were creating chances and getting balls into the box but we just needed somebody to finish them off.”
