Kevin Nolan hails Meadow Lane buzz for dramatic Notts County draw

Joe Jones

Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has praised the crowd at Meadow Lane for remaining optimistic even after they went two down to Exeter City on Tuesday night.

The Magpies ultimately claimed a 2-2 draw against the Grecians after injury-time goals from Richard Duffy and Jorge Grant pegged the visitors back against all odds.

Nolan says the players "felt a buzz around the stadium" and it spurred them on to claim a valuable point that keeps Notts out of the League Two relegation zone.

The gaffer told the official club site: "Obviously you don’t feel as confident at 2-0 that you’re going to get back into it, but you’ve got to believe. If you get one you can get two - and we did.

"You felt a buzz around the stadium and that drove the lads on. We deserved at least a point out of the game tonight.

"When you do what we’ve done in the last four or five minutes in this game you can’t get carried away, but what you can take from it is having a team we can all be proud of. We can look at each other and know we’re all in this together.

"We know it’s going to be tough from now until the end of the season but tonight goes a long way towards what we’re trying to achieve - which is to get some consistency and try and get a run going."

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it was 2-2, I thought I was seeing things!

I've seen pictures various friends have taken, it looked like Meadow Lane was jumping and before that (probably not so) but it just shows you how things can change with a bit of luck and a lot of spirit.
