Get That Momentum Going

25 January 2013

Notts County can kick-start a run of form with another three points this weekend, says Keith Curle.

Notts have a chance to record back-to-back victories for the first time since November in Saturday's npower League 1 encounter with Leyton Orient.

A 1-0 scoreline against Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night marked the Magpies first win of 2013 and followed up an impressive draw with promotion chasing Sheffield United. 

Curle feels that another triumph can give the Magpies some momentum, as they prepare for a busy run of fixtures.

He told Magpie Player: “We need to go on a little run ourselves, I can’t remember the last time that we put back-to-back victories together. 

“That was the message that got translated to the players after the game on Saturday.

“It was a fantastic effort against Sheffield United, a good result against Oldham but let’s build on that and get back-to-back victories.

“Then, let’s go on a four or five game winning run that can get us back up the table and you never know what can happen.”  

Notts head into the fixture just six points outside the Play-Off places, with two games in hand. 

The manager is well aware of the challenge that awaits at the Matchroom Stadium, as Orient recently enjoyed a patch of positive results themselves, having recorded eight consecutive wins across November and December.

“I think we’ve got to be respectful rather than wary, because we know every team has strengths and weaknesses," he continued. 

“I think we’re a goal threat and I think that they’re going to have to cope with us and stop us from playing the kind of football that we want to play.

“They’ll be a very competitive team, they do better at home than they do on their travels, so it’ll be a hard-fought game and we’ll have to earn our right to play football."
