Liddle: The Chase Is On

27 February 2013

The Notts County squad are going to give everything they possibly can to earn a Play-Off place come the end of the season, says Gary Liddle.

Notts closed the gap to nine points on Tuesday night with a 1-1 draw against high-flying Tranmere Rovers.

The Magpies created enough chances to win the match but Chris Kiwomya’s side had to settle for a share of the points at Prenton Park. 

In the final 12 games, County face a number of their top-six rivals but Liddle believes they have nothing to fear, after more than matching one of the division’s top outfits. 

He told Magpie Player: “We’re creating chances and that’s all that matters, because when you can go to places like that, which they’ve made a little bit of a fortress themselves over the season, and get something it bodes well. 

“There certainly isn’t a gulf in class between the two sides and we absolutely destroyed them, I thought. 

“It’s just about finding that momentum and if we can do that then we’ll find ourselves aiming for that Play-Off place.

“That’s what we’re striving for and we’ve got 12 games to try and do that.”

He continued: “We’re a point better off than where we were before the game and we’ve got a group of games now where we can pick up wins. 

“Bury have won away at Swindon and Bournemouth have lost at home to Coventry and as long as teams around us are losing and dropping points, we’ve just got to make sure that we’re winning our games.

“We’ll keep on chasing them and hopefully keep picking up the points to catch them.”

Notts are next in action on Saturday, when the team take on Carlisle United at Meadow Lane (3pm kick-off).
