Nolan: An enjoyable game

Boss reflects on final-day draw

5 May 2018

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan enjoyed the Magpies' draw with Luton Town as his side completed their regular Sky Bet League Two season.

In a game featuring plenty of chances at both ends, Notts were unable to capitalise on their man advantage after Danny Hylton had been red-carded.

The stalemate left the Magpies fifth in League Two and, while there were no goals to be had, the boss was nevertheless pleased with the occasion.

"It was an enjoyable game for the fans," he said. "There were plenty of chances, 'oohs' and 'aahs'.

"It was always going to be a tough game today, whether they were up or not, but we’ve kept a clean sheet and we’ve had chances.

"I thought we could have put them under more pressure when they went down to 10 men but it’s something to learn from and it’s a positive result going into a big two weeks."

The manager now turns his attentions to a two-legged play-off semi-final against Coventry City.

"It’s a knockout competition now," said the boss. "We’ve got to be better than them over 180 minutes and if we can do that then we will be going to Wembley.

"I’ve got great belief in these lads and what we’ve done all season long."
