Thomas: 'We've transformed'

Winger delighted with team's recent progress

2 October 2018

Nathan Thomas says Notts have transformed into a completely different team from the one they were at the start of the season.

The winger got the third goal of the 3-1 win over Crawley Town on Tuesday night which extended the Magpies’ unbeaten run to four matches.

And after winning back-to-back games, Thomas feels the side have changed for the better.

“We look the opposite to what we did six weeks ago,” he said.

“You can see from the performance against Crawley that we look like a proper team now, not one that was third from bottom prior to kick-off.

“Mistakes that were costing us are few and far between now and we have become more ruthless at the other end.”

Now the 23-year-old says the side need to continue to make progress after picking up six points in four days.

“Two games aren’t going to change a season,” said Thomas. “We need to go on a run now and that is definitely the plan.

“We have another massive game coming up against Macclesfield on Saturday and if we make it three wins in a row it kick-starts our season.

“We’re good enough to go there and put a performance on again so hopefully we can pick up three points, put the start of the season behind us and look towards the right end of the table.”

Thomas came off the bench against Crawley to score his first Notts goal and says the competition for places in the squad means you are under pressure to play to your potential.

He added: “When you have our array of talent among the substitutes, anyone can improve the team at any moment.

“It means no one can rest on their laurels and it breeds a competitiveness within the group that can only make us better.

“In attack we have pace and goals, which is half the battle for success in this league, and we look frightening going forwards.”
