Nolan: It's a fantastic point

Boss reacts to Luton draw

9 December 2017

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan was pleased to take a 'fantastic point' from the trip to Luton Town.

The manager saw his side perform strongly in a 1-1 draw at Kenilworth Road and was pleased with how his men handled their hosts' potent attacking threat.

"We limited them to very few chances," said Nolan. "Ross Fitzsimons pulled off a great save at the end, but overall we had a lot of opportunities - especially in the first half.

"They hit us with a sucker punch, but that's what they do with the quality they have. You can't switch off for a minute.

"Luckily enough we hit them back and it's a fantastic point.

"We respected the fact Luton had really good attacking threats and I thought we thwarted them very well."

The boss hopes his side will still be closely competing with the Hatters come the end of the season.

But, for now, he's just happy to have taken a step closer to securing Notts' EFL status for another season.

"We're ever-closer to that 50-point mark now, which is very pleasing. We've just got to make sure we get there as quickly as possible.

"Let's see if we're still going blow-for-blow with Luton in March/April, because I'm sure they're going to be challenging for the title come the end of the season."
