Kevin Nolan says his side 'dominated throughout' against Morecambe this afternoon.

The boss oversaw a comfortable 2-0 victory and was delighted with the way his team handled the match.

"It was a lot better than last week's performance [at Port Vale]," said Nolan. "I thought we dominated throughout.

"The lads were magnificent. They followed up a hard-fought win last week with another top performance and clean sheet today.

"As a defensive unit I feel we had to get better from last year. We were leaking goals from here, there and everywhere and now we look like a really good, solid unit.

"It was a great all-round performance and I'm absolutely delighed. We're on a decent run now but the games come thick and fast.

"We've got another tough one on Tuesday night so we're looking forward to that."

Dan Jones opened the scoring before an injury to Shola Ameobi saw Jonathan Forte enter the fray.

And the forward, who added Notts' second with five minutes of normal time remaining, will now be hoping to seize his opportunity to start against Swindon Town on Tuesday.

Nolan said: "We had planned for him to start on Tuesday anyway.

"We've got to make sure we play to his strengths. We don't want him to try too hard - we want him playing his normal game.

"He finished his chance really well today and it was a well-deserved goal."
