Kewell: We'll scare teams

Gaffer believes the Notts attack causes fear

21 September 2018

Harry Kewell says other teams will fear his side’s firepower after watching the performance against Stevenage last week.

Notts go into Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two clash at Northampton Town still looking for their first win of the season, but with a strike-force that has not been short of goals.

The three in last weekend’s draw with Stevenage all came down different avenues and Kewell feels that gives the opposition a lot to think about.

“We have goals from all angles and that will scare teams,” he said.

“Last week we had one from a set piece, one from a through ball and one from Enzio’s [Boldewijn] individual brilliance so the opposition will have to watch everybody.

“The strikers are scoring loads in training and we’re looking at matches knowing we can score in a variety of ways, which is a huge positive.”

Kewell says it has been refreshing to see his players so open with him when discussing their performances so far this season.

“They’ve been very truthful, which players often aren’t because they try and hide things,” he explained.

“When I’ve asked questions of them they’ve given me the honest answer and I take my hat off to them for that because they have expressed their disappointment and their desire to correct things.

“They realise where we are and are taking responsibility because they know they are the only ones who can turn this round at three o’clock on a Saturday afternoon.”

And the Australian doesn’t think his side are too far away from a change of fortunes.

Kewell added: “Everyone believes that a good run is just around the corner and it is the fine margins that will determine it.

“It can be one pass or one decision but we also need that bit of luck because we have started games positively and created chances.

“We just need to control the things that are controllable because that gives us the best chance of turning the corner and heading in the right direction.”
