Kiwomya: More Venom Needed In Attack

10 March 2013

First team manager Chris Kiwomya was disappointed not to see a valiant defensive performance earn the Magpies all three points on Saturday afternoon.

Notts battled out a goalless draw with Crawley Town at the Broadfield Stadium and although the team rode their luck at times they had a number of good chances to win the match. 

This included substitute Enoch Showunmi’s late opportunity, which saw him burst past a defender to get into the box, only to see his powerful drive turned away by a fantastic reaction save. 

Kiwomya was pleased with the way that his side coped with the Crawley pressure but spoke of the need for greater cutting edge at the other end of the pitch. 

“We played a lot of good football and I though that we passed it out but even in the second half on the counter attack we’ve got to put them to bed,” he told the press. 

“There were times where we broke three on three and two on two and we just didn’t have that little bit of quality in the final third.

“If we want to be catching the top six we need to be getting wins so that’s two games on the bounce where we’ve had points dropped. 

“It’s disappointing, because I thought we played a lot better than we did in midweek and we had a lot more possession.

“Against these teams, they’re going to put pressure on you – they’ve had good results here – but I felt we had to break with more venom.”
