Neal Ardley has launched a spirited defence of his Notts County players as he urged them to rediscover their swagger.
The Magpies entertain Boreham Wood at Meadow Lane on Tuesday night from their defeat to Aldershot at the weekend as the club suffered back to back defeats for the first time this season.
With four points separating them from the top seven, Notts fans are eager for the club to get back to winning ways in an incredibly congested National League table.
And Ardley is eager for his players not to throw the baby out with the bath water as a result of their last defeats.
“We had a bit of a swagger about us until a certain point and it’s important we don’t let doubt creep in,” said the boss.
“My message to the players is ‘don’t stop believing, let’s not become a team that scraps for points in a way that evens the playing field.'”
