We've come a long way

3 May 2017

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan says today's victory against Blackpool shows how far the club has come in recent months.

The Magpies rounded off their home campaign with a 1-0 victory over Gary Bowyer's men in front of more than 7,000 supporters.

And the boss was thrilled the team were able to send the Magpies faithful away from Meadow Lane happy.

"Today showed how far we've come," said Nolan. "The fans are coming out in force and it would be magnificent if we can keep sending them home happy week in week out.

"When we first came in home crowds were only about 3,000 some weeks, so to get where we are today is a great achievement from everyone.

"Alan Hardy and all his backroom staff deserve so much credit because their hard work has come to fruition, making it easier for us on the pitch."

Nolan accepted it wasn't the most exciting of matches but still takes great pleasure in the outcome.

He said: "I don't think it was a great spectacle and it could have gone either way.

"We haven't played well today but we've come out with a 1-0 - a nice clean sheet, which I'll enjoy just as much as I did the Colchester game the other week.

"Hopefully we can finish on a high next week at Newport, which is going to be tasty because they've got to win to stay up and we want to go out with a bang.

"We're looking forward to that now."
