County priorities in place
26 Jan 2010 - 11:31:10
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."
