Shola Ameobi hails Notts County change of mentality

Joe Jones

Shola Ameobi has played down the significance of Notts County's 1-1 draw with Luton Town but insists that the Magpies could still be in the hunt for automatic promotion at the end of the season if they keep up the level shown at Kenilworth Road.

Notts are still second in the table on goal difference, level on points with the impressive Hatters following the draw in Bedfordshire, in which Ameobi scored to cancel out Johnny Mullins's opener.

Although there are still 25 games to go, the former Newcastle United striker says the team is enjoying the way things are at present and feels they can get a result at top teams, a 180 degree switch from how things were just last year.

“We are not getting ahead of ourselves,” Ameobi told the Nottingham Post.

“There is a long, long way to go yet. From where we were when I first came in, to where we are now shows we’ve done a tremendous job.

“We are enjoying it. We went to Luton determined to get the win and that shows the mentality that has changed over the last few months.

“We’ve gone to the top teams thinking we can get a result. That’s very positive for us going forward and if we can keep this level there’s no reason why we can’t be up there at the end of the season.”
