Notts County Sierra Leone defender, Mustapha Dumbuya (In Photo) has no doubt the club are now in a relegation battle. Dumbuya who recently overcome his injury problems is concern about the club scrap for survival at the foot of League One with six games to go.
Dumbuya, 27, recognises they still have six games to save their season and they also have some tough games coming up starting from this weekend – and they need to start winning sooner rather than later.
The Magpies have only one win in their last eight and now find themselves in the bottom three, when Dumbuya was asked if he felt Notts County were now in a relegation fight, the Sierra Leone right-back – said: “Yeah, I think we’re.
“It’s been difficult as I was injured with hamstring problems not being able to help the team, but I am back and have played the last three games which have resulted in draws, and hopefully continue to help the team until the end of the season making sure we collect more points to push away from the relegation position.
“Today I met the new manager, I believe he will implement a winning mentality into the group and help us avoid the drop.
“We are professionals so we just have to stay positive and try fighting our way out of this position we are in,” Dumbuya told footballsierraleone.net
With six games to go, the Magpies lies 22nd in the Sky bet League One table and there is not where Notts County fans want their club to be.
Newly-appointed manager 50 –year-old Ricardo Moniz will be looking to turn things around when the face Yeovil this weekend at the Huish Park.
“I will say to the players, don’t change for me, be yourself, be confident, trust in your own unique qualities because you have unique qualities and enjoy the game, enjoy winning and have no fear,” Moniz told the media on Tuesday.
Chairman Ray Trew has said Moniz’s arrival would bring a new level of enthusiasm, hoping they would get the result that could save them from relegation.
The Magpies fans have seen their team unable to take home maximum points in eight-match sequence and some of those in attendance against Coventry expressed their frustration by booing at the final whistle.
