Match Reaction: Cambridge United 1-0 Notts County, Tuesday 20 February 2018

Joe Jones

Notts County have suffered another huge blow in their automatic promotion hopes as Cambridge United ran out 1-0 winners in their League Two clash at the Abbey Stadium.

Medy Elito scored the winner for the hosts in the 30th minute to continue their good form since the departure of manager Shaun Derry with a third win in a row, while for Notts it's a fourth league defeat in 2018.

What was the reaction to the match from Kevin Nolan and from the Black and White Army? Pride of Nottingham takes a closer look.

Kevin Nolan

"I'm deeply disappointed because I thought we were starting to get back to where we were and I feel we have come away from that today.

"There wasn't much in the game but we didn't deal with Uche Ikpeazu well at all tonight. We looked at their strengths and we didn't deal with any of them and we didn't do anything to exploit their weaknesses.

"I have said to the lads we have another quick turnaround and another big game on Saturday where we have to get three points."

The Black & White Army (PON forum and social media)

Northants Pie: I think we should just settle for the mid table finish that we are hurtling towards. Dissapointing given our start to the season but we were found out around the end of November and have only managed to get worse since. This squad nearly got relegated for a reason, we need another relatively large scale squad change in the summer to ensure we get a more dynamic defense and a more dynamic front line.

Chris: It's disappointing because you can see that they don't have the fight anymore, fans are telling the passion is gone and I'm seeing a lot of comments which fall inside with this feeling. I don't care where we finish, provided we fight. Nile Ranger would ruin us and all our progress, but we need someone up top.It's hard, but we lost one nil to a team that by the stats played much better. Oh well. :(

Alex West: Nolan needs to seriously look at himself in the mirror. Disgusting performance not even one shot on target. Well finish bottom half at this rate not alone the play offs. Seriously bottling it

Stephen Jeffery: Bubble has well and truly burst, nice while it lasted but league 2 football is best we can offer, dream on Alan if you think championship

Martin Smith: What do you think Nolan will say. The lads weren't up for it tonight thought we played better second half etc. Ffs 4 4 2 Nolan us fans do know a bit about football. I know we've come a long way and building for the future but come on do our players know what a goal looks like after tonight's stats. Saying all this I will be there in Saturday hoping for a better performance and a goal or two. Coyps

Martyn Malone: PISSED OFF BIG TIME 😡😡😡 This is what happens when you don't get players in the transfer window not just that something is not right players don't just stop playing like Notts have over the last 7 weeks if it's not sorted asap mid table then no playoffs for HARDY like he wants

Adrian Wheatley: Grant poor again think he needs a rest for a bit playing like hes not interested at the end of the day he will hi tail over the river at the end of the season. Play our players who have it all to play for

Mike Adams: 4 shots on target and no goals in the last 3 away league games-players arguing with players, players arguing with manager and players arguing with fans-talk to someone who was at Barnet or Cambridge if you want to know what’s happening at this club
