A deserved victory

28 January 2017

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan was delighted to claim what he felt was a deserved first victory as manager of the Magpies.

Nolan oversaw a dramatic 2-1 win over Crawley Town, despite seeing Curtis Thompson sent off in the second half.

And, while the boss is delighted to have claimed his first win, he was keen to pass the praise on to his players.

He said: "It feels good, but I’ve got to praise the lads. They’ve taken on board what we’ve worked on this week and they were brilliant.

"I think you’ve seen today that we’re all together and I think we deserved what we got.  

"We’re trying to keep our league status and if we continue to play like that we’re going to be in League Two next season.

"Then it’s about building the mentality around the club with everyone on board."

Notts exited their transfer embargo yesterday and Nolan will now be working hard to strengthen his squad.

He said: "We can look at the market and bring lads in who are going to make this squad stronger going forward.

"[The chairman] hasn’t worked so hard to not try and make us better. I’m very happy with this squad - it’s not just about getting people in for the sake of it. They have to want to come to this club and work hard."
