Jamie Turley says Notts need to use the clean sheet against Oldham as a springboard for future performances.
The defender was in fine form during Tuesday’s 0-0 draw, making a goal-line clearance and putting in a last-ditch challenge to deny Ishmael Miller when he looked set to score.
And Turley feels the result could prove to be a catalyst for a change in form, much like the clean sheet at Northampton was in September.
“Getting a clean sheet was massive for us and we have to build on it now,” he said.
“When I first signed here we had the same situation – we got a draw at Sixfields and then we went on a good run, so hopefully we can do that now.”
Turley was pleased with his own performance, but insists it was just another day at the office.
“I enjoy defending and that is what I’m out there to do,” he explained.
“I was asked to stop crosses and I think I did my job well but it’s just another game for me.
“I’m there to defend and work back to help my team-mates out and I hope the fans can see I’m a player that leaves everything out on the pitch.”
