Building confidence

27 January 2017

Notts County goalkeeper Adam Collin hopes this weekend's game against Crawley can be the catalyst for a change in fortunes for the club.

The Magpies are seeking their first win under the management of Kevin Nolan and the stopper wants the squad's efforts to be rewarded with a good result.

"It's frustrating that we haven't got more than a point from the two games under the new manager," Collin said.

"He is still young, enthusiastic and he backs all the players, whether they are youngsters or senior pros. He just wants us to be a really solid unit to try and turn things around.

"I thought we did well against Mansfield considering we were coming off a run of 10 straight defeats. We started well at Grimsby but got caught for the second goal as we went chasing an equaliser.

"It's a different manager but the same group of players. We're trying to buy into what the new manager wants to bring in. The lads are really enjoying it and hopefully it will turn and we can start picking up points.

"A win on Saturday would help to build confidence within the squad and hopefully lift us out of the bottom two so we can push on up the table to where we should be."

A crowd of 11,328 was in attendance against Mansfield and Collin is hoping for another strong turn-out this weekend. 

"It was a good game and a great atmosphere to play in," he said. "To make a couple of important saves and keep a clean sheet was pleasing.

"All the players commented in the week after the Mansfield game what a great atmosphere it was and we wish it could be like that every week.

"It does make a massive difference to the way the lads play and you could see they responded to it with the performance."
