Notts County: Boss Chris Kiwomya demands more from on-loan Man United striker John Cofie
NOTTS County boss Chris Kiwomya has told on-loan Manchester United striker John Cofie: "I need more."
The 20-year-old's one-month youth loan from Old Trafford ends next week and Kiwomya is undecided whether to extend it.
Cofie has only scored one goal in four starts since his switch to Meadow Lane at the start of this month – and that was on his debut against Crewe.
He has drawn blanks in the Magpies' last three games in League One against Walsall, Bury and Tranmere Rovers.

And ahead of tomorrow's home clash against Carlisle United (3pm), Kiwomya is demanding more from the young forward.
"John started well and has done OK, but I still need more; I'm a demanding manager," he said.
"I'm hoping he will give a little bit more and then we'll look at his loan again."
Kiwomya will also soon have to decide whether to extend the loan of Leicester striker Jacob Blyth.
He joined Notts on a one-month loan, but has only started once.
"It's hard for Jacob," added Kiwomya.
"He's come in and if you're playing 4-4-2 he's got to play with a guy he's never played with before.
"It's one of those scenarios where if you come on you have got to grab your chance – that's what I'm saying to all of the guys."
The Magpies are unbeaten in their last four games under Kiwomya ahead of facing Carlisle on home soil and four of their next five league games are at Meadow Lane against teams below them in the table.
It is a great chance for Notts to close the nine-point gap on the play-offs and get back into the race for the top six, but Kiwomya is not expecting an easy ride.
"The teams down at the bottom are fighting for their lives and so they might come and pack their defence," said Kiwomya.
"You have really got to hit top form and have the confidence going into the games."
