Kevin Nolan cancels day off for Notts County following "unacceptable" Yeovil Town rout


Kevin Nolan has revealed that Notts County's players came into training today despite it originally being a scheduled day off due to their "unacceptable" display against Yeovil Town.

The Magpies defence was routinely sliced open as the Glovers ran out 4-0 winners, with Alex Fisher bagging an easy hat-trick and former Notts man Yoann Arquin adding the cherry on top.

Notts were booed off at half-time and at the final whistle, with the Magpies now having conceded 10 goals in their last three games, and Nolan was not at all impressed with the abject display.

“There are lots of emotions running through me at the minute,” he told the Nottingham Post at full time.

“But we got what we deserved because, quite frankly, when we talk about game plans, game management, not one of them have taken it on board.

“It’s quite strange really because we worked our socks off on Thursday, but they’ve struggled under the lights and the expectancy of what’s been thrown at them.

“But we’ve got to sort it out quickly because we have a game on Tuesday. We were supposed to be having a scheduled day off on Saturday but they will be in now.

“They will watch it again and we’ve got to put it to bed and we’ve got to get better and quicker.

“I’ve told the players who have watched me and have been with me for the last 18 months who know what I am about.

“I’ve just told them that it was unacceptable in terms of my standards.”

I agree, they need to work hard in training to improve. It's unacceptable, no time off when you don't seem to bothered. That would be rewarding them.
