Harry Kewell has claimed that Notts County seem to finally be moving in the right direction although "time, blood, sweat and tears" will continue to be needed in pursuit of the upper reaches of the League Two table.
The Magpies have now won their last two league games and are unbeaten in four, a stark turnaround from earlier in the season when they looked unfit for purpose in the fourth tier.
“It’s looking good especially in the opposition half,” Kewell told the Nottingham Post after the 3-1 home win over Crawley Town in midweek.
“We had a spell of about seven minutes on Tuesday when we dominated possession and created about three or four chances.
“We kept on moving, kept on switching it, got crosses into the box and I think Matt Tootle missed a simple header which he had to get on target.
“I am happy that we are creating chances and happy we are heading in the right direction.
“It’s exciting, but it’s not just down to me. I have got a great staff, the owner is very comfortable and very supportive.
“We had a great turnout from the fans which was excellent and we all want this club to get it to where it should be.
“It’s going to take time and blood, sweat and tears. That’s what we’ve got to work to.”
