No pressure on us

Collin in relaxed mood as end-of-season showdown approaches

27 April 2018

Notts County goalkeeper Adam Collin is relishing the final two matches of the season safe in the knowledge a play-off place is secure.

The Magpies guaranteed themselves a top-seven finish with an emphatic 4-1 victory over Yeovil Town last weekend.

And victory at Grimsby tomorrow would mean they keep Wycombe (third) and Exeter (fourth) close enough, or even overtake them, going into the final day of the season.

"We’ve put ourselves right in there with two games to go," said Collin. "If a couple of results go our way we can get automatics, but it’s nice knowing we’ve got the play-offs secured.

"Anyone can beat anyone in this league, especially when the pressure is on. Exeter and Wycombe know they’ve got to win.

"We just have to concentrate on ourselves and get six points - they can easily slip up."

Should the dream end to the season not come to fruition, Collin is relaxed about the prospect of forging a path to League One via the play-offs.

"If we can keep up the form we’re in we can go into the play-offs on a really positive note and with a lot of momentum," he said. 

"It’s been a good dressing room all season. When you win games that comes into training and it’s a great place to be. 

"Grimsby will be tough - they need another point to secure their safety. It’s always difficult going away in this league, but as long as we play as we did last Saturday we will be fine."
