Still a lot to play for

30 March 2018

Dan Jones has not given up hope of securing a top-three finish in Sky Bet League Two this season.

Notts find themselves four points adrift of Wycombe ahead of their game on Good Friday and the defender thinks the Magpies are still firmly in the race for automatic promotion.

"We can't afford many more bad days at the office but other teams are going to feel the pressure and have a wobble somewhere along the way," he said.

"I think we have a squad with the strength in depth and the ability to cope with anything that comes our way.

"There is still a lot to play for and a lot of games left, the key is consistency and us doing what we do best.

"We do the basics very well, are solid as a team and are very good defensively so if we get those fundamentals right we'll be fine."

The former Chesterfield man has enjoyed a strong season since rejoining the club last summer and reserved praise for Kevin Nolan for how he has handled the 31-year-old, who has been plagued by injuries in the last few years.

"I have to hold my hands up and say this is the first time I have been more or less fit for the whole season," he admitted.

"The gaffer has looked after me in a good way so I have to thank him. I feel like I have played well and affected games in the right way.

"I've made 25 appearances this season which is good for me coming off a 14-month lay-off with an injury.

"Hopefully there is more to come."
