Hollis: A Massive Achievement For Myself

21 September 2014

Defender Haydn Hollis spoke to Magpie Player about being captain for our 0-0 draw with Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

Hollis, who was awarded Man Of The Match for his performance in the game, told BBC Radio Nottingham's Colin Slater how delighted he was to have been handed the captain's armband.

"That’s a massive achievement for myself, I was so, so proud to do that," he explained. "I’ve captained the club at youth team level and reserve level and that was a totally different experience out there today.

"I didn’t really think about it too much to be honest. I like to be a leader out there anyway, I think we’ve got a team of leaders, no matter who’s got the armband on really."

Focussing on the team's performance, the 21-year-old added: "This time last year we would have not played well and we’d have got beat and we’ve not really played well today and we’ve got a point, so that unbeaten run goes on."

And he reserved special praise for veteran goalkeeper Roy Carroll, who pulled off a wonder save in the final moments of the game to seal a point, exclaiming: "What a save! He let me know about it as well, he said I should’ve blocked the shot! But no, he’s been unreal since coming in, he’s a proper leader, he’s very loud and you can see by the saves he made today, you need someone behind you like that."
