Notts County preview

29 October 2013

Into the Magpies' nest

Magpies are birds which are renowned for thieving, but tonight Latics will be looking to pinch three points from their Sky Bet League 1 match at Notts County.

Latics travel to the division's bottom club on the crest of a wave which has seen them suffer only one defeat in their last five league and cup games as fortunes have improved in October.

That contrasts sharply to County who have lost their last three league matches and have amassed a measly seven points from 13 league matches, something which cost manager Chris Kiwomya his job on Sunday. 

Lee Johnson is looking for his side to continue its good run, but is warning his players to be on their guard at Meadow Lane.

Latics' manager is aware of the danger of playing County two days after they dismissed Kiwomya.

Latics have a decent record at Meadow Lane, though they have lost 1-0 on each of their last two visits.
