Steve Chettle was pleased with Notts County Reserves’ attacking play during their win against Rotherham on Tuesday.
Goals from Kion Etete, Noor Husin and Sam Osborne earned the Magpies their second Central League Cup victory of the season.
And Chettle enjoyed seeing the threat his side posed and feels the win will boost confidence in the camp.
"I'm pleased with the victory," he said. “We worked some very good patterns of play and could have scored a few more.
“Noor got involved from an advanced position which helped him have a few attempts on goal and convert one of them.
“Andy Kellett was another who performed well and he’s also benefitted from playing 90 minutes.
“We had a nice blend of senior professionals and youth team players in the line-up and it’s good for their morale to get that feeling of winning a game.”
Husin hopes his performance impressed manager Neal Ardley, who was in attendance at Ilkeston Town’s New Manor Ground.
“It’s always good to get on the scoresheet, especially as it had been a while,” said the midfielder.
“The gaffer wants me to make runs in behind and into the box and help to create overloads on the wing so we can cross the ball – I thought I did a good job of all those things.
“It was nice to get another 90 minutes in the tank after doing so against Carlisle and although it’s tough on the legs it helps to get the fitness up.”
