Notts County manager Kevin Nolan praised his side's perseverance after seeing them earn a late point against Forest Green Rovers this afternoon.

Rob Milsom's first Notts goal deep into second-half stoppage time preserved the Magpies' unbeaten home run, which stretches back to Easter Monday.

And, while disappointed with the overall performance, Nolan was pleased with his players' determination to take something from the match.

"I'm relieved," he said. "Fair play to the lads, they persevered and got their rewards in the end with a well-worked goal.

"I don't think we turned up today, which is disappointing. A lot of lads didn't have one of their better days but the togetherness they showed got us over the line and earned a point, which they can take a massive lift from.

"A lot of people would have been coming here today expecting us to win 3-0 or 4-0 but this is a very tough league and anyone can beat anyone.

"We weren't great – we know that – but we kept ourselves in the game and put the chance away when it came to turn a defeat into a point.

"I'm frustrated because I know we are a lot better than what we've shown today but when you score in the 94th minute, it shows the lads have an inner steel about them and I am delighted with that."
