Noble: "It's A Great Three Points"

14 September 2015

Liam Noble was delighted to score the goal which earned Notts County a first home win of the Sky Bet League Two season against Luton Town.

With the game tied at 2-2, the midfielder, who had only been on the field for five minutes, crashed home an unstoppable, match-winning free-kick in added time.

And the 24 year-old admitted there was a lot of relief that his set-piece found the back of the net.

"Jon Stead scored with a free-kick against Mansfield in our last game so he wasn't very happy that I was taking it! The last thing he said to me was 'You'd better score' and thankfully I did," said Noble.

"It was a great three points for the team, which is the most important thing and it was an important goal to keep our run going after beating Mansfield in the last home game.

"It gets us up the table a little closer to where we want to be, which is in the top three."

Were it not for Noble's late intervention, County would have been ruing the loss of a 2-0 lead given to them by Izale McLeod's brace, and the midfielder knows that things still need to improve defensively.

"It wasn't a good game for us to watch on the bench because we should have been 3-0 or 4-0 up," he said.

"It went to 2-2, which was disappointing because we know we need to tighten up at the back, which starts from Jon and Izale up front, but we need to all work together to try and keep a clean sheet.

"Luton are a very good team and I think they'll be up there come the end of the season.

"But credit to us as well, a lot of teams would have crumbled when they got it back to 2-2 but we came through and got the three points."
