Kelvin Wilson believes Notts County are determined to end their poor run of form.Notts County defender Kelvin Wilson believes his colleagues are determined to put the club's poor run of League Two form behind them.
The Magpies are currently on a three-game losing run and have slipped just eight points above second from bottom Kidderminster Harriers.
The 19-year-old has written off the club's hopes of achieving promotion this season, but is hopeful next season can be more successful.
"I don't know what the problem is, but as soon as we do we'll be okay," said Wilson to skysports.com.
"I think all the players are [determined to turn the club's form around]. We know we can.
"I don't think promotion is possible this season now, realistically, but hopefully next season it could be."
Wilson broke into the club's first team last season and the young defender reserved special praise for former manager Gary Mills.
Mills handed the Nottingham-born stopper his debut as a substitute against Hartlepool back in April 2004 and Wilson has not looked back since.
"I never thought it would happen [breaking into the first team] to be honest, but as soon as Gary Mills came in as first team manager he gave me my big chance," he added.
"I thank him a lot. Even though we lost I thought I did well and I enjoyed it to be honest. Strangely, I enjoyed it even though we lost.
"There are a lot of experienced players in the side and they are helping me all of the time."
Wilson scored in County's 3-2 League Cup defeat to West Ham earlier this term and the defender is eager to get forward on set-pieces and contribute up front.
"I'm a tall lad and from corners I've had a few chances but I haven't been able to put them away, but I'd love to score more goals."
Due to Wilson's impressive displays fans have begun chanting 'There's only one Kelvin Wilson' and the youngster was surprised when he heard the applause.
"When I heard that the first time I couldn't believe it. It was at Hartlepool I heard that, I was just shocked," he concluded.
