First team manager Shaun Derry is desperate for Notts County to put the disappointments of 2013 behind them with a positive opening to the New Year against Bradford City.
The Magpies ended 2013 with back-to-back away defeats to Port Vale and Crawley Town, which leaves the team at the foot of the Sky Bet League 1 table.
But, with a New Year comes fresh optimism ahead of a big few months for Notts, as they aim to climb out of the bottom four in the second half of the season.
Derry, although disappointed with the last two results, remains positive and is eager for the home faithful to turn out in force to get behind their team in the 2014 curtain-raiser.
“We have made strides both on and off the field and I’m hoping people will take notice of that,” he said.
“It’s a different place from the place from the club we came in eight or nine weeks ago.
“They’re the positives and we’ve got to make sure that the second half of the season a lot more enjoyable.
“For it to be enjoyable we need to be producing how I know we can produce and not like the last couple of games.
“We’ve got to react and get ready for the game.
“We need to take the lessons that we’ve learnt from the [Crawley] game and make sure those days don’t happen too frequently.”
