Richard Duffy: 'Consistency will be key for Notts County'

Joe Jones

New Notts County defender Richard Duffy says he aims to bring stability and experience to the squad and believes consistency is the best trait in the "grind" of League Two.

The former Wales international put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Meadow Lane after rejecting a contract offer at Port Vale.

Duffy also told the Nottingham Post that, if he and the rest of the team can keep up their game evenly across the 46 games of the season, the Magpies can enjoy success come the end of the campaign.

On what he will bring to the team

"I'd like to bring a bit of stability and experience (at centre-back). It's like anything in football, you've got to earn it, though. I've got to earn my place.

"Hopefully I bring some consistency to the position. It's the same as with the team, it's not flash, but if you're consistent, you're going to do alright.

On Notts County

"You look at Notts and they've got what it takes to kick on. They've got the ambition and they're already building well for the season ahead.

"Some of the signings the gaffer is making are really encouraging. Hopefully we get a good pre-season under our belts and then we can kick on.

"It won't be easy next season. League Two is a grind. It's Saturday, Tuesday most of the way through, so the main thing is to be consistent.

"If you can have 10 or 11 players every week on their game then you are going to win a lot more than you lose."

"Let's take it one step at a time. The aim is League One so let's see where we are next season.

"It's a tough league and we're going to have to work hard to get out of it."
