Liam Noble is hoping for better fortunes against Crawley Town tomorrow evening as the Magpies look to respond to their first defeat of 2018.
Exeter City ended Notts’ unbeaten home record on Saturday with a 2-1 win thanks to first-half goals from Jake Taylor and Jayden Stockley as Jon Stead’s penalty proved to be little more than a consolation.
And the midfielder says the quick turnaround for the game against the Red Devils is perfect for the players.
“We were disappointed to lose the home record the way we did and it would have been a long week if we didn't have this game,” he said.
“We need a reaction from everyone and I'm sure we will get it. There are 18 games left and there will be a lot of twists and turns to go along the way.
“You're always going to get two or three weeks where you look at the scores after a defeat and everyone around you has won but there's no point looking at it or worrying until there are a few games left because it will keep changing.
“Teams will continue to take points off one another and plenty of them still have to play each other too.
“We just need to keep going because we have the squad to bounce back.”
The 26-year-old is refusing to take Harry Kewell's 14th-placed side lightly, however, warning that anyone can beat anyone in League Two.
“It doesn't matter who we play at home because every team is going to come here and give it their best shot.
“They need the points for their own reasons and ambitions in the same way we need them for ours.”
