Halsall: Despite The Win, Plenty Of Work To Be Done

20 October 2014

Head of Academy Coaching Mick Halsall is looking for further improvements despite the 7-1 away win against York City…

The Magpies made it three wins in a row with an emphatic 7-1 win at the weekend.

Two hatricks from Colby Bishop and Lartey Sarpong, with the other from Rhys Myers gave Notts their biggest win of the season and pushed them further up the league.

Despite the scoreline, Halsall believe there is plenty that his side can do to improve.

He told the Official Site: "It was an okay performance, there's still lots to do and lots to improve on.

"The 7-1 scoreline doesn't mean it was a great performance.

"We actually went a goal behind, as early as the second minute, so that was poor. It was poor defending from a set-piece, so we need to work on that and tighten that up.

"Our passing at times wasn't good enough and we tried to rush the play too much, looking for the killer ball too many times in the first half.

"It also took us too long to get ourselves on the ball and into the game. We just got to be better at keeping the ball and went to move it on forward. 

"We were holding onto the ball too long and we will be going through the video and stats to see how we can improve it.

"We had a lot of shots and chances, it must have been in the region of 31 shots, so it will be interesting to see how many were on target.

"We went three up and the opposition lost confidence and fell away a little. There's loads to improve on."
