Haydn Hollis looking to restore pride to Notts County's season

Joe Jones

Notts County defender Haydn Hollis wants to use the last two games of the League Two season to restore some pride before they head into the summer break.

The Magpies will travel to Newport County this weekend before ending the campaign with a home clash against Carlisle United, who are managed by former Notts boss Keith Curle.

Defeat against Cambridge United last Saturday was their third loss in a week, following on from losses to Mansfield Town and Barnet, and with neither promotion nor relegation possible, there is very little to play for.

"We want to restore a little bit of pride," said Hollis.

"The gaffer said before Saturday's game that, with the profession we are in, there are great opportunities to rectify mistakes.

"But they are not easy games against Newport and Carlisle – there aren't any easy games at this level.

"Be it the top or the bottom, it's never straightforward and in Carlisle they've got Keith Curle, another ex-manager who is going to want to beat us."

Good luck with that, I have my doubts but winning the last two games would be nice - I just don't see it happening. I am more worried about Carlisle (last game of the season).

It would be depressing to lose at home in that game.

Nice sentiment from Haydn but even 2 resounding wins wouldn't even be a start to restoring pride to this miserable season , sorry to be so harsh but that's how I see it , plus I think that's a big ask anyway, this season needs to end , and a bright new start is needed , then and only then for me anyway , pride can be restored.
