The draw earned Kewell his first point in charge of Notts since taking over.

His League Two club went ahead three times but couldn't close out the contest.

Notts took a 3-2 lead on 49 minutes, but a 73rd minute strike from Danny Newton ended the match with the spoils shared.

Kewell believes the draw is something his team can build on.

''I don't want too many games like that - we had a plan at the start of the game to get some confidence back in to the team," he told the BBC.

''I'm disappointed that we are ahead three times and we couldn't hold out - but again it's a point and it's something to build on.

"After we took the lead we had another couple of good opportunities to wrap the game up - it's just one of those things - overall I'm delighted with the point.

"Once you do the hard work on the training ground, it should be fun out there. All the players dug in deep, it's just a shame we didn't get the three goals.

"You have to have a willingness to defend - there is a problem and we need to fix it - that doesn't just come in games it also comes in training.

"We are heading in the right direction - I knew exactly what I was stepping into - I had come and watched a couple of games beforehand.

"The way that you've seen us in glimpses, we are looking good and looking strong."
