Clean sheets are key

14 January 2017

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan was 'chuffed' with the efforts of his players in his first game in charge.

The new boss oversaw a 0-0 draw with local rivals Mansfield Town and believes the performance backs up what he said in his press conference earlier this week.

Speaking after the game, Nolan said: "I've been proved right that this squad is capable and good enough to get results and start moving up the table. If you can start keeping clean sheets, you start winning games.

"I thought the keeper [Adam Collin] made some fantastic saves today. We had a few half chances and they missed a glorious one. We needed that luck - we haven’t had it when I’ve looked back.

"So I'm delighted with the clean sheet, delighted with the performance and delighted with how they competed."

Despite being pleased with his players' efforts, Nolan knows much hard work lies ahead.

He said: "Hats off to them, I’m chuffed to bits, but it’s only one game.

"We got a point but we’ve got to build on it now."
