STILL WARY OF NOTTS THREAT

11 September 2015

Boss looks ahead to Saturday's test against new-look County

A break from the Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday-Tuesday routine this week could give the Hatters an added boost when they travel to Notts County this weekend.

For the first time since the season began there has been no midweek game for the Town, which has included three cup ties.

"Personally, I like the games but when you're on such a run because we've had a little bit of success in the cups it doesn't give you as much time on the training ground,” manager John Still said at his Thursday press conference.

"On Tuesday and today [Thursday] we were able to do a bit more so from that point of view it was ideal."

The Town aim to make it back-to-back wins in League 2 when they make the trip up the M1 to take on a Notts County side who contain 17 new faces following relegation last term.

In charge at Meadow Lane is Ricardo Moniz, a Dutchman who managed and coached in Holland, Austria, Hungary, Poland and Germany before setting foot in Nottingham.

And while Still confesses to know little about his 51-year-old counterpart, the Town boss is well aware of the threats that Moniz’s side possess.

"It takes time but they've got some good players in,” Still said. "In Jon Stead and Izale McLeod up front they've got two decent forwards and they're probably a club that will probably be disappointed to have come down and they want to get back up as quickly as they can.

"They've made some changes staff-wise and I think at this stage of the season everyone is still trying to settle down.

"But I know that if they perform to the quality that they have in their team then they'll be a force this year along with quite a few clubs."
