Nolan: Let's give it all we've got

9 December 2017

Kevin Nolan wants his Notts County players to give it everything they have in the first versus second clash against Luton Town this weekend.

The Magpies travel to Kenilworth Road level on points with the league leaders, trailing the Hatters only on goal difference.

And Nolan was under no illusions as to how difficult a task his team face, but believes there is more than enough within the camp to come away with a positive result.

"They have played some lovely free-flowing football this year, and you have to give the massive respect for how they have gone about it, but with the players they have I am sure that is what Nathan Jones [Luton manager] expected.

"It is about us trying to exploit their weaknesses and we've seen some which we think we can take advantage of. If we can do that, we will give them a run for their money and go toe-to-toe with them.

"Let's enjoy it, go there, have a proper go at them and give it all we've got."

While the game is being billed as a heavyweight clash within the division, the manager was keen to retain perspective as Notts approach the halfway stage of the Sky Bet League Two season.

"We don't go anywhere to try and not win the game - I think that's important," he said. "We have to be respectful because Luton are a good side with quality players.

"But it's about making sure we take this next game as it comes. This match won't win the league, keep us in the play-offs or get us relegated; it will leave us first or second in the table, no matter what happens.

"That is a testament to the boys and how far they have come in such a short space of time.

"It will be a tough ask but one we are all relishing and looking forward to."
