Chris Kiwomya wants the Magpies prove that they have what it takes to make it into the top six by beating high-flying Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday night.
Notts travel to Prenton Park to face Ronnie Moore’s third-placed Rovers on the back of a 4-1 win over Bury.
County head into the match 10 points adrift of the Play-Off places but are unbeaten in three under the new boss, having also picked up draws against Walsall and Crewe Alexandra.
Kiwomya says that his side need to start registering more victories if they are to close the gap on the promotion contenders and has every faith that they can come away from Tranmere with a positive scoreline.
He told the press: “It will be a tough game, especially at their place, but I think those are the teams we've got to get something from away from home if we're going to be in the mix at the end.
“I think we can get something and if we can go there and get a win, it would send out a signal.
“This game’s important because we’re going into it on the back of a good win and we need to try and get some momentum going.
“We’ve drawn two, and I think we could have won one of those, but we need to try and get wins now.
“Draws aren’t going to be enough, because we’re 10 points behind, so I want to try and get as close to the pack as possible to give us a chance with three or four games going into the end of the season.
“If we can get a good result against Tranmere, that would set us up well for the weekend.”
