We shaded it

Nolan reacts to Stags draw

17 March 2018

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan said he was proud of his players' efforts following the 1-1 draw against Mansfield Town.

Terry Hawkridge gave the Magpies a first-half lead but County were pegged back in the final minute as Kane Hemmings struck an equaliser from the penalty spot.

The game was played amid constant blizzards throughout the afternoon and the manager was pleased with the way his men dealt with the inclement weather.

"I don't think I've ever been involved in a game with weather conditions like that," he said.

"I'm delighted with the lads for the way they went about it in really difficult conditions.

"We shaded it, had chances and limited them to very few until the last minute, when they are going to throw everything at you.

"The way we handled everything - the occasion, the atmosphere and the conditions - was absolutely spot on.

"They deserved to win after the performance they put in."
