Lewis Alessandra: 'Notts County fully professional during festive period'

Joe Jones

Lewis Alessandra has stressed that Notts County will not lose focus over the busy festive period and will look to build on their Boxing Day 4-1 away win over Morecambe.

The 28-year-old scored a goal in each half at the Globe Arena, along with Jorge Grant's brace, to help keep the Magpies entrenched in the top three, while Callum Lang claimed a late consolation for the hosts.

Up next for Notts is the weekend trip to Swindon Town and the New Year's Day home game with Port Vale, and Alessandra says the players and staff are being "thoroughly professional" during this period.

“I’ve been a professional player for 10 years now and Christmas is always the same,” he told the official Notts website.

“It’s all the sweeter when you come away from home and get a win and a couple of goals, as I have done today.

“The games come thick and fast over the Christmas period and the gaffer reiterated to us that he wants us to detach ourselves from third and fourth.

“He wants us to be thoroughly professional and you will get that from all the lads.

“It’s about recovery now, then we’ll do game preparation for Swindon, looking at them in detail as we do for all our opponents. We’ll be looking to go there and put in a performance to keep this unbeaten run going.”
