Husin: We have nothing to fear

Husin confident ahead of FA Cup clash with Swansea

26 January 2018

Noor Husin says Notts County have 'nothing to fear' as they host Swansea City in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup this weekend.

The Magpies have overcome Bristol Rovers, Oxford City and Brentford to reach this stage of the competition and the midfielder, who moved to Meadow Lane earlier this month, says the team are looking forward to their latest challenge.

"It's great for us to be able to test ourselves against a Premier League team and see what we can do," said the 20-year-old.

"They're a good team who'll be on a high after beating Liverpool on Monday night but we have nothing to fear.

"We beat Brentford, a good Championship team, in the last round so there's no reason why we can't beat Swansea.

"We have to go into it with confidence and do our best. It's a huge game and we'll all be up for it."

Some may have presumed Husin's decision to leave Premier League side Crystal Palace to sign for Notts was a difficult one.

But the Afghanistan-born midfielder insists it was quite straightforward.

"I scored on my league debut for Accrington against Notts County last season and the manager kept an eye on me and watched my games.

"They rang me and said they wanted me to come here so I was delighted to make the move.

"I'm at an age where I want to be playing games and, while it's good to be in and around it, if you're not involved you're not developing.

"I've come here to play, develop and move forward in my career."
