Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County will show Chesterfield ultimate respect'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has stressed that Notts County will show Chesterfield "ultimate respect" when they lock horns in League Two on Sunday.

The Magpies remain in the promotion hunt and will travel to the Proact Stadium for a second game against local rivals in quick succession following the Mansfield Town home draw.

Unlike the Stags, though, the Spireites are six points adrift of safety in the bottom two of the table, but Nolan is not taking their lowlier league position for granted.

“It’s another local derby and you've got to earn the right to play,” he told the Nottingham Post. “It might not be as intense as the derby against Mansfield but there are still bragging rights at stake.

“For me, we will show them ultimate respect because they've got some good individuals and Jack (Lester)'s team play some really good football.

“But you know I'm confident if we continue to play the way we have been over the last few weeks we've got a good chance of coming away with the points.

“But this and the next five weeks are not going to be easy. What we've got to do is just make sure we tick the games off one by one and hopefully when we're putting a "W" next to them. If that's the case we will all be having a good time on May 5.”
