Bring The Anfield Desire Back Home

30 August 2013

Notts County need to take their performance from Tuesday night’s trip to Anfield into this Saturday’s fixture if they are to take maximum points, says manager Chris Kiwomya.

Buoyed by a vocal away following, Notts completed a two-goal second half comeback against Premier League Liverpool in the Capital One Cup and almost claimed a historic scalp. 

County played with bags of confidence and desire, which will be required once more against a Rotherham United outfit that are unbeaten in the league so far this term.

Kiwomya told the press: “This is our bread and butter, Saturday will tell me a lot more about the players than Anfield.

“I said the to players that I could have played at Anfield with the adrenaline buzz going through you, it’s these games – the Rotherhams and the Stevenages - [where we need to perform]. 

“If we’d have played like we did at Liverpool against Stevenage we’d have won by four - but we didn’t.

“If we’d have played the same we that we’d played against Galatasaray we’d have won by four - but we didn’t. 

“It’s the mental things and they’ve got to go out there and play like that, because Rotherham will be a hard team.

“I went to watch them against Aston Villa and they’re a big, physical team and they make it hard for you.

“They are similar to Stevenage but, not being disrespectful, they area bit better at this moment in time.”
