PRESS | Michael Flynn: "We’re not concentrating on records - we just want to win the next game"

30 October 2020

Michael Flynn insists he is still demanding more from his players despite leading the club on their way to their best ever start to an English Football League season.

County, who have picked up 22 points from a possible 27, find themselves two points clear at the top of the Sky Bet League Two after conceding only two goals in six games.

The dramatic 2-1 win over Colchester United on Tuesday evening has put the Exiles in good stead ahead of a tricky clash against Harrogate Town tomorrow.

But, despite their positive start to the season, Flynn says he still wants more from his team in front of goal.

“You can always improve. I’m not going to sit here and say we are the finished article," said Flynn.

“We could be a little bit more ruthless in the final third and we could move the ball quicker at times.

“In fact, they’re doing extremely well, I just want it to continue.”

The Exiles could chalk up a fifth successive league victory of the campaign against Harrogate, but Flynn will not be looking at the record books.  

“We’re not concentrating on records - we just want to win the next game," he continued.

“We need to keep on being realistic; we’ve always been level-headed and not got carried away or got down if results go the other way.

“If the fans want to get excited, great, that is down to them, and I can’t control that. But we are taking things in its stride because it is very early days."

County will come up against another in-form side in the Sulphurites, and Flynn is aware of the challenge that the newly-promoted side will pose.

“We have done our homework on Harrogate - they have started very well.

“They are a high energy team, and they are going to be difficult to play against.

“It is going to be a tough game, if we turn up and expect to get three points, then we’ll be turning away with none. Every game this season is going to be a tough one.”
