The Youth Team were left disappointed as they surrendered another lead to lose 3-2 away at Hartlepool on Saturday...
Goals from Alex Kenlock and Jack Golding had put Notts in a commanding position after the break, but the hosts stormed back with two goals to claim the three points.
Head of Academy Coaching Andy McMillan praised his team, but admits it’s frustrating to go ahead in a match again and not come away with anything.
He told the Official Site: “It’s another very good passing performance. We moved the ball really well. We told the lads at half-time, the only thing that is going to cost us this game is any sloppiness in possession and sadly that happened.
“We were 1-0 down, but midway through the second-half we were in the lead, away at a strong and physical Hartlepool and it’s where the lads must learn how to shut-up shop and hold on.
“But they’ve come and if you concede three goals in any game, you won’t pick up many points.
“I can’t fault the lads for their effort, but we’ve got to start to learn how to win games, quickly. I am hoping the performances will mean the rewards will come through soon.”
Notts now face Chesterfield in the Youth Alliance Cup away at the weekend, a team they have already beaten in the league campaign this season.
“It will be a tough game. They are a decent footballing outfit, well organised and strong, but it’s a cup game and we will be confident going into it. We want to go and win it, get through to the next round and have another game,” McMillan added.
