Neal Ardley believes Notts County have been a “joy to watch” at times this season, but insists there is still room for improvement.
The Magpies are currently five points behind leaders Bromley in the National League in what has been an impressive start to the campaign with Ardley’s side having lost just three of their last 17 games.
Ardley has implemented a possession-based style of football this season and it has culminated in some fine performances particularly in the 4-0 win at Woking last Tuesday.
They had to show a different side against Hartlepool at the weekend, however, as they showed tremendous character to fight back from 2-0 down to snatch a point against a team who were well organised.
Ardley feels he is making good progress with how he wants his teams to play, but maintains there are still facets of Notts’ approach that can get better.
“We are trying to build a philosophy here and I think at times, we have been a joy to watch,” he said.
“Teams have come here and shown us respect and I am sure Hartlepool worked on their system all week.”
