We can take on anyone

27 February 2017

Josh Clackstone says he and his Notts County team-mates feel they can 'take on anyone' ahead of the trip to Plymouth Argyle.

The Hull City loanee was part of a youthful back line which kept a clean sheet in the draw against Yeovil on Saturday and the defender believes Notts can go to Home Park and get a positive result.

"The manager has a lot of confidence in us so if we go down there and do what we can do and stick to the game plan, we can take on anyone," he said.

"We have a good bunch of lads here and we know what we need to do in order to stay up. If we keep getting clean sheets, as we did on Saturday, we will move in the right direction and keep getting points on the board.

"We're on a good unbeaten run and have started to develop a consistency in our performances and the way we're playing."

After coming on during the 2-2 draw with Exeter on 14 February, the 20-year-old was handed his full EFL debut in the 3-2 win at Leyton Orient.

His full home debut came against Yeovil at the weekend and the youngster is relishing the opportunity given to him by manager Kevin Nolan.

Clackstone said: "I'd encourage any young player to get out on loan. There's a massive difference between playing at under 23 level and first team level in League Two.

"When you come into a first team the games mean something and you're playing against people of different ages and experiences, which means you learn a lot more in a quicker space of time."
