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.”
