Moniz: Saturday Was A Good Feeling, But We Aren’t Safe Yet

26 April 2015

Manager Ricardo Moniz was delighted to claim his first Notts win, but is cautious that the job hasn’t been completed yet…

The Dutchman’s squad claimed a vital three points with a 2-1 win over Doncaster Rovers, a win that helped lift them out of the drop zone and a step closer to League One safety.

He told the local media post-match that his side nearly gave him a heart-attack as they conceded a late goal, but admitted his side was more efficient despite having less possession than recent games.

He told Magpie Player: “The defence deserved the win. They responded. 

“The early goal was needed, we had the initiative, but they came back into the game after 30 minutes. We weren’t organised and we must do that better.

“They had two distance shots and they can play, we made it 2-0 and didn’t do what we said and we concede and almost gave me a heart attack!

“We had a free-kick and we must stay behind the ball, we lost our discipline. 

“The second goal was crucial, both goals set up by Burke. Creativity is always important. He showed everyone he can play football, but he has a lot to learn. He was efficient and deciding for us. 

“We didn’t have much of the ball, but we were more efficient.

“Everyone must be on board for Sunday, we must wait to see what happens in midweek, today is a good feeling, but we aren’t safe yet and we have to remain focussed.”
