Kevin Nolan delighted to see Notts County captain Michael O'Connor back in action

Joe Jones

Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight in being able to welcome Michael O’Connor back to action.

The midfielder played the last 13 minutes of Easter Monday’s 1-0 defeat to Accrington Stanley when he came off the bench to replace Noor Husin.

O’Connor was playing a first-team Notts game for the first time since last April when he suffered a serious knee injury in a 3-1 defeat to Portsmouth.

“I think I’ve spoken a few times about Occy and how amazing he has been with the staff,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“Credit to Tom Hallas the physio and his team who have worked tirelessly with Michael.

“With the way Occy has gone about his rehab it is an absolute testament to the lad and our medical staff that he was able to have 15 minutes.

“I am delighted for him and it has given me another selection headache. But it’s a massive bonus to have your captain back.

“I was happy with him and you can see he brings that character and he got involved in a little few bits and bobs.

“But it’s going to take him time and that’s why we wanted him to play those minutes because it’s another tick in the box.

“Hopefully going into the next three or four weeks we will see a lot more of him. He will feature a lot more and regularly.”
