Haydn Hollis urges caution despite Notts County being "different class" against Colchester United

Joe Jones

Haydn Hollis has hailed Notts County's performance in their 3-1 win over Colchester United, describing every player as "a different class", but urges all the players to keep their feet on the ground.

The Magpies put in arguably their best home display of the season in seeing off the U's and remain 13 points clear of the bottom two in League Two with just six games remaining.

Hollis, who opened the scoring early in the encounter, told the Nottingham Post: It was a top performance and one of the best we have given at home this season.

"They (Colchester) are a team looking to get into the playoffs and they've not really troubled us apart from the goal which has flown into the top corner. Apart from that, I thought everybody was a different class.

"We are not mathematically safe, but you'd like to think we are. The other teams would need to produce promotion form and you just can't see them doing that.

"And while we are producing it, we cannot get carried away. Keeping our feet on the ground has been one of the reasons which I think has brought us success.

"If I stand here and start bigging us up that's when you are in danger of losing your good work. We've just kept a level head and grounded. We have to stay like that."

This is one thing about Hollis which deserves praise, he is always positive and focused. Under Kevin Nolan he has been a different player but he deserves more stability, its hard to be the player we need otherwise.

Some fans need to lower their criticism of him.
