Ahead of tonight’s encounter against the Magpies, Steve told crewealex.net: “We need to enjoy winning at home and playing in front of our supporters again.
“We know how important these two home games against Notts County and Coventry could be and the fans have an important role to play. We need them getting behind the lads to help with our performance.
“We know we didn’t give them much to shout about against Oldham in our last home game, but when things aren't going well is when you need the fans the most.
The boss added: “There will always be good spells and poor spells in all the games and the players will make mistakes. All I can ask is that they stay with them, stay with the players, we will need them tonight and on Saturday. Be patient and support them, that's what we need. Any booing certainly doesn't help their performances. “
