Kevin Nolan admits holidays not on his mind as Notts County seek strong finish to League Two season

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has admitted that he hasn't given his holidays a single thought as he seeks to finish the season strongly with Notts County.

The Magpies are edging closer to sealing a playoff place, which would extend their campaign beyond the standard 46 games - although automatic promotion is still a possibility.

Four league games remain for Notts, with Colchester United first up at the Weston Community Homes Stadium, and Nolan spoke at length about what is coming up for his team.

“You sometimes get to this point in the season and look forward to the holidays, but I’ve not even spoken about one to my missus yet,” he told the Nottingham Post. “That shows how much work we are trying to put in and to finish the season strongly.

“There’s no better feeling to win, especially when it’s deserved and with a performance like last week. Coventry are a really good outfit and Mark Robins was very complimentary about our lads after the game.

“We knew we had to be on our mettle if we were going to secure the win. It was just the way we did it. When it went to 1-1 you think ‘here we go again’ and part of me felt that. But you look at the lads and to do what they did was fantastic.

“But they’ve been flying this week in training and have been looking forward to the game. It’s going to be another difficult one but one we hopefully can enjoy, keep the winning run going and see what happens come 5pm on Saturday.

"Colchester is a tough place to go and they played us really well here. We got away with one in the last minute and I did say to their manager that we did.

“We are going to be prepared for them because they’ve got some very good strengths. As I say, we’ve noticed a few chinks in their armour and I hope we can expose them on Saturday.

“I am just going to enjoy every minute of it. Unless I am going to be a top manager there are not going to be many times when you get these opportunities. I am really looking forward to the games and celebrating no matter what happens on May 5 because it’s been such a fantastic turnaround.”
