Goals from all over

1 September 2017

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan says he is excited by the goalscoring options he has throughout his squad.

The Magpies head into tomorrow's match against Port Vale in free-scoring form and Nolan hopes to see the whole team continue to chip in, rather than having to rely on individuals.

He said: "We've scored eight goals in four games and they're coming from all over the pitch. That's what you want – to be a threat from every situation.

"We could have been four-or-five-nil up against Wycombe and Accrington and at some point it's going to happen – and then hopefully people are going to say I was right!

"We're producing quality from set pieces, we're getting our runs right and I feel we're improving. The squad is understanding me and hopefully we'll keep progressing."

Notts have had plenty of goals to celebrate of late

Nolan, who also revealed he is in talks with chairman Alan Hardy over a new contract, offered his congratulations to Jorge Grant after the midfielder was voted Notts' August Player of the Month.

But he reserved special praise for Grant's fellow nominee Adam Collin.

"Adam's been absolutely magnificent in every game," said Nolan. "He's commanded his box superbly.

"He's a totally different keeper to the one I walked into in the first week and, working with Mark Crossley, I feel he's getting better.

"We also recruited two top young goalkeepers who are pushing him for his place."
