Bialkowski Hails The Defence

Bartosz Bialkowski has hailed the efforts of the team and the defence in front of him during the victory over Colchester, because he has waited quite a while to register a clean sheet again in a Notts County shirt.

With three back to back victories lifting us out of the drop zone on goal difference and really giving us a chance of survival now when hope did seem to be lost, the praise and the plaudits are flowing for performances in our last three games and Bialkowski can more than be involved in that praise given the clean sheet he kept.

Of course we last kept a clean sheet against Leyton Orient but we have to go back to the beginning of February to see the last time we kept a clean sheet and also registered a win.

Despite our goalkeeper putting in plenty of good performances this season, despite our results and league position, he was ever humble despite the saves he pulled off in our last match, and was very quick when talking to the Official Site to not take the praise himself, but make sure it was passed around the team.

'As a back five we've been absolutely rock solid and I'm so happy we've kept a clean sheet because it's been a while. If we're going to play like that and keep winning everyone is going to be happy, especially the fans. Winning the games is the best feeling in the world and the clean sheet has given us massive confidence and we deserve that.'

It wasn't just the Colchester victory though, it's been a fantastic week that has returned a maximum of nine points from an available nine over the last three games and Bart knows we could well have kept clean sheets over the previous two as well, but it wasn't to be, and picking up three points from the matches was far more important in any event.

Like the gaffer though, he also acknowledges the fact that in many ways given the quality we do have in the team - and that's not to say we should be vying for titles - we certainly shouldn't be languishing as we have at the bottom of the table, so we have just got three results in a row that we should've been doing anyway this season, so nothing is achieved yet. We're still in the mire, but we have now given ourselves a real chance, so nobody can get carried away and this has to be the first three of those games we have remaining.

Make them count for something and we can really celebrate. Make them count for nothing, and well, they won't count for anything and we'll be back in the hole we have just dug ourselves from.

'There's six games left and it's not over yet.'
