Goalscorer Liam Noble felt that, as a team, Notts County did enough to deserve their 1-0 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy victory over Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night.
Noble found the net with a strike from distance in the 74th minute and told Magpie Player after the game that the opportunity seemed to present itself and he seized the chance to have a crack at goal.
“I think it just opened up for me and the Gaffer tells us to run forwards with the ball and I took it forwards about 10 yards, played a one-two with Stephen [McLaughlin] and it just opened up and I thought why not and caught it sweet and it was a good goal and we move on and hopefully take it into Saturday,” Noble said after the game.
“They didn’t really break us down, we didn’t feel threatened at any time and I thought we came here, done a job and we got the job done,” he added.
The popular midfielder also reserved special praise for the travelling Notts support on a bitterly cold evening, adding: “Great travelling support. When the Champions League’s on back home, it’s freezing cold up here and it would be nice and warm in their living room, but it was fantastic support and I’m sure a lot of people were listening on the radio and I’m glad we’re sending the fans home happy.”
