County priorities in place

26 January 2010 11:31
Notts County captain John Thompson has insisted the priority for the club this term is to gain promotion from League Two despite their FA Cup exploits. County grabbed a 2-2 draw at home to Premier League outfit Wigan Athletic at the weekend to further consolidate their interest in the season's competition. However, Dave Kevan's men have a tough clash at Dagenham & Redbridge to deal with on Tuesday and Thompson insists the squad are concentrating on their league aspirations. He said: "The Dagenham game is huge and it's a great game for us on the back of an excellent performance and good result at the weekend. "Our performance on Saturday has boosted confidence - to play against a Premier League team and match them the way we did was a great effort. "But now we have to build on that - we have to start beating the teams around us in the League because that's what's going to decide whether or not we get promoted."
