In the build-up to the weekend’s encounter with Crewe Alexandra, Chris Kiwomya’s focus will be on improving the Magpies’ cutting edge in front of goal.
Missed chances once again cost Notts, as they were condemned to a second away defeat in four days by Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium.
County camped in the Boro half for most of the game but failure to convert chances once again cost them dearly.
“I think we had more shots, more crosses but you can have as much as you want, because, at the end of the day, it’s about putting the ball in the back of the net,” Kiwomya told the press.
“We had a lot of half chances, balls were going into the box from crosses, corners and free-kicks, but we just couldn’t get anyone on the end of them.
“It’s very frustrating but it’s been something that’s the problem with us and we need to try and find a way to start turning those half chances into full chances and goals.”
On the whole, Kiwomya was pleased with the desire shown by the team, following a difficult few days that saw former boss Keith Curle and coaches Colin Lee and Colin West relieved of their duties.
He continued: “There were a lot of disappointed players so I had to try and pick them up.
“They were committed for me, they worked hard for me, but it’s hard to play against a team like that.
“Overall, I felt that we were the better team, they were just playing counter attacking football against us.
“They changed their shape to stop us and dropped back, so it was just one of those games.”
Kiwomya has brought in former Tottenham Hotspur defender Dean Austin as a coach to assist him with first team duties.
