Despite a slow start, first team manager Chris Kiwomya says that the Magpies’ objectives for the season remain the same.
Notts have endured a difficult opening to the Sky Bet League 1 campaign, not helped by a series of injuries to key players.
This has seen the Magpies take one point from the opening five fixtures and they head into this weekend’s trip to MK Dons looking to lift themselves off the bottom of the table.
After a one-week break due to international call-ups, County are refreshed and Kiwomya remains confident that the team can gain a positive result at stadiummk as they strive for a top-half league position this term.
“My targets were to be in the top half of the table and I still think we can achieve that,” he told the press.
“We’re looking at the situation of difficult results but I haven’t seen us beaten by four – I’ve seen other teams in this league beaten by fours and fives.
“It’s just the one goal here and there and, although performances haven’t been as good as what I wanted, if we can get one or two players back in the team who are big influences, I think the performance levels and the confidence will go up.
“We have to play the football that will bring the fans back, be competitive and take our chances.”
He added: “If we win we go up the table so psychologically that doesn’t concern me at the moment.
“What concerns me is getting a full team performance from all 11 players out on the pitch.
“We’re giving the players the confidence to go out there and win a game.”
