Youth Team Narrowly Lose Out To Millers

8 September 2014

The young Magpies were unfortunate again not to get a result away to Rotherham United...

Notts Youth Team lost to Rotherham United 1-0 on Saturday, but Head of Academy Coaching Mick Halsall believes his side aren't too far away to getting the first win on the board.

The Magpies are still awaiting their first three points of the campaign, but Halsall saw plenty of positives again to take into their next fixture.

Notts' best chance came from the spot, but returning striker Colby Bishop's effort was well saved.

Halsall told the Official Site: "We did alright again. We conceded off a free-kick which was a bit naive and they score from that.

"Out of position we looked okay, but we got caught out on the counter-attack.

"The biggest concern for me is going forward and the lack of goals. We improved in the second half with Jack McMillan and Paolos Beraki coming on and I thought we looked more of a threat.

"We got a penalty and the keeper made a great save down to his left, if we would have got that, I felt we were in the ascendancy to go on and win it. 

"We aren't far away to getting a result, getting a win and then go forward as a team. We just need to tie down the lapses of concentration and that creativity, with people stepping up and score some goals."
