Richard Duffy has admitted that he would relish being handed the Notts County captain's armband permanently but says he will back whoever is given it.
“I’ve spoken to the manager but nothing about the captaincy,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“Whoever it will be will be and if it is me then great. If it’s not then I will be back whoever gets it.
“Obviously I wore it for the majority of last season until Occy (Michael O’Connor) came back and that was because he was club captain. But if the manager gives it to me, then I will relish it.”
Duffy also thinks Notts must not be afraid to have moments of playing hoofball if they are to change their philosophy and become a passing team.
“Being easy on the eye isn’t easy,” he added.
“You’ve got to do the dirty things and you’ve still got to put the ball in behind and play it long whatever people say.
“If you look at Man City and Arsenal they will do it and then teams will start to drop off then they start to play.
“Luton did it. They are a passing team and get the ball down but have a look at how many times Bris (Shaun Brisley) and I were chasing back to our own goal.
“It was quite a few times and however good you are, they will put it in behind and make you drop off, then all of a sudden the holes appear and that’s when they start playing their stuff.
“You’ve got to work yourselves into games and we did that in the first half.”
