Kevin Nolan does not expect his team to be given an easy ride by Stevenage this weekend.

The Hertfordshire side come to Meadow Lane off the back of a 4-1 victory at home to Yeovil Town last Saturday, ending a run of four games without a win in Sky Bet League Two.

And the Notts boss, while wary of the threats posed by the visitors, is confident of a good display from his team.

“They’ve just had a fantastic result last weekend so it will be a tough ask for us,” he said.

“Darren Sarll has done a great job since he has gone in there and they have some really good players who like to play.

“They will be a good test for us to see where we are but I am looking forward to trying to get back to positive and winning ways.

“It’s a great opportunity at home because if we play to our maximum and do what we do then I feel we will give ourselves a good chance of winning the game.”

With changes to the transfer window revealed on Thursday afternooneason, Nolan said he believes those higher up the footbaling pyramid will come up with a solution to appease managers across the Premier League and EFL.

“Anything that stops the window from going on for any longer is a great idea for me!" he laughed.

“I think once you get your squad, you should have your squad and then there might be a period where you can change it if you need to.

“The speculation in and around January about players - I spent more time talking about players who weren’t mine – wears you out.

"I trust the managers higher up to get a system which is going to work. If it can work for them then it is surely going to work for the EFL too."
