Harry Kewell is preparing to take his Notts County side to Macclesfield this weekend, hoping to see them continue their push away from the bottom of the table.
The beleaguered Silkmen are without a win since being promoted to the Football league and are currently bottom of the table. It was a situation County found themselves sin just a couple of weeks ago, but back to back wins have lifted them clear of the bottom two.
Now Kewell is hoping to pass another stern test and continue his side’s push up the table.
“Wins breed confidence and happiness,” the former Liverpool player told Nottingham Live. “I am not going to sit here and say we are not happy at this moment in time. But we are fully aware that a bad result at the weekend can knock us back down.”
“We’ve got to work hard and this weekend is going to be the biggest test of the season so far because we’ve put a couple of good results together.”
County have had a terrible start to the season, but the green shoots of recovery are certainly evident as Kewell settles the side down and looks to make hi mark on the proud club.
If results go well, County could end the day in 17th and whilst it may not be their aim right now, it will be a step further away from the dreaded drop zone.
Few expect them to stay at the bottom all season, but a trip to Moss Rose is a huge test. If they win three on the spin it is probably safe to say they’re pointing in the right direction.
