A match for anyone

14 February 2017

Kevin Nolan says Notts County's recent home performances prove they can be more than a match for high-flying Exeter City on Tuesday night.

The Magpies beat Cheltenham Town on Saturday to claim back-to-back home successes following victory over Crawley Town in their previous Meadow Lane encounter.

And the manager is confident his team can complete the double over the Grecians, who come into the match on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Devonshire rivals Plymouth Argyle.

Nolan said: "They'll want to bounce back. When you win a game, the first thing you want to do is get back out on the pitch and it's the same when you lose because you want to eradicate that defeat.

"Exeter have been on a fantastic run of form. I've watched a lot of videos over the last 48 hours and they play well. They do things right more often than not and that's why they've had so much success.

"But, if we do what we did on Saturday, we can certainly win this game. We're looking forward to what will hopefully be another good spectacle that goes in our favour."

The manager has seen the spirit in the squad improve since the upturn in home form.

He said: "The players know if they get to the levels they did on Saturday, they can beat anyone.

"They are starting to believe what I believed when I first came through the door - that this team is well capable of staying in this league."

Tickets for Tuesday's match are £20 for adults and free for under 12s. Click here for more information.
