Confident of victory

8 April 2017

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan says the team travel to Carlisle United confident of picking up another three points.

Notts have won their last three matches and are looking to prolong their streak against the seventh-placed Cumbrians.

Nolan, who has a fully-fit squad to pick from aside from the suspended Mark Yeates, said: "We’re looking forward to it. We’re really enjoying our football at the minute because we're playing well.

"We feel if we play to our strengths and get at their weaknesses we'll have another good away day. We're on a good run and we're very confident we can go there and get the three points.

"We want to build momentum now for next season. We're looking up rather than down and if we get the win it puts us mathematically safe, which is the most important thing for us.

"I've got a lot of lads out of contract in the summer so they've got a lot to play for. They've got to prove to me they want to be here next year  - that they can handle it and continue to take this club forward.

"We're trying to build something that's going to take us on a brilliant journey."

With the club moving in the right direction on the field, Nolan is looking forward to this summer's planned pitch renovations.

He said: "We want the best possible surface for next season. We've got to pride ourselves on being a good football side who can hopefully entertain week in, week out.

"We know we're going to have to battle our way through some games but we're trying to build an identity here.

"As long as it's winning football I think everyone will be happy but we want to try and do it with a bit of class."
