Judge gets verdict from Curle

NOTTS COUNTY have hailed the impact made by former Ireland U21 man Alan Judge this season.

Dubliner Judge scored and won the man of the match award for the Magpies in their 3-0 hammering of Portsmouth and boss Keith Curle believes that Judge deserves to be playing at a level higher than League One.

"He's an excellent player," Curle says of former Blackburn man Judge, capped 17 times at U21 level. "He has bought in to what my staff and I are trying here. He's got that willingness, that devilment in his play. He knows how to hurt the opposition and plays one- and two- touch football and I honestly believe he is a Championship footballer."
