Kiwomya: Stay In Touch

12 March 2013

'Stay in touch' is the message first team manager Chris Kiwomya has delivered to his players ahead of an important two matches for the Magpies.

On Tuesday night, Notts face Preston North End at Meadow Lane, ahead of another important home clash against Scunthorpe United on Saturday. 

County remain seven points off the top six, despite dropping four points in the last two games, meaning that the Play-Off dream is very much still alive heading into the remaining nine matches. 

Kiwomya knows that Notts' chances can slip away very easily if his side do not start converting draws into wins.

Although seven matches unbeaten, County have tied five of those games - a familiar story throughout the season. 

The boss feels that if the Magpies can remain within touching distance of the leading pack, the pressure will be cranked up on their Play-Off rivals for some massive end-of-season encounters. 

"It's always a good thing when you're not getting beaten but if we just turn even one of those draws into a win it'd look even better," Kiwomya told the press in his pre-match press conference. 

"We've got two opportunities here really to try and find that back-to-back win that I think will get us back in it and hat's what I'm asking the boys to do.

"It might be like Carlisle - a difficult game - but you've just got to try and grind them out.

"It is close and if we, in the next two games, can get something and go into the Swindon and the Brentford games with them looking at us and going 'Notts County have gone nine unbeaten' it makes them think that we might be getting close to them.

"We just need to be there or thereabouts in the run-in and I think if we can get that extra body in that gives us that boost, that can help as well."
