Notts County 'Invincibles' deserve more credit, says boss Keith Curle
NOTTS County's record-breakers have not been given the credit they deserve, says boss Keith Curle.
The Magpies go to Scunthorpe United in League One this Saturday a staggering 17 away games unbeaten stretching all the way back to last season.
They have not lost once on the road since Curle took charge of the club nine months ago, racking up nine wins and six draws in the league to shatter a 41-year-old club record of ten league games unbeaten.
And they have also beaten the Iron in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and Portsmouth in the first round of the FA Cup this season.

Premier League giants Arsenal hold the all-time record in English Football of 27 away league games unbeaten so Notts have a long way to go to beat that.
But Curle believes the Magpies would have gained more plaudits if they were in the Premier League like Arsenal's 'Invincibles' or even in the Championship.
"I think it's a fantastic feat," he said.
"There has been a lot of commitment, application and desire shown by the players.
"We go into games with the attitude that we're not going to get beat."
The Magpies' best win during their record run was against Charlton at The Valley in March when they thrashed the eventual League One champions 4-2.
They have also claimed great draws at promotion rivals MK Dons and Sheffield United this season, sparking the belief they could go an entire year unbeaten – or even the whole season.
Curle is not getting carried away by talk of that, adding: "All we know is we're happy with what we're doing in preparing for games and out on the pitch.
"We know we go away with the mind-set of we're going to stifle the opposition's threat and expose their weaknesses."
