Kevin Nolan: 'Pointless assessing the League Two table now'

Joe Jones

Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has stressed that assessing the League Two table at the minute is pointless, with a lot to be determined in the final few games of the season.

The Magpies face Yeovil Town in their penultimate home game of their season this weekend.

Although the playoffs look like the most likely outcome for Notts, they're not mathematically certain just yet, while a top-three place is still up for grabs.

“It will only matter on 5 May," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "We will know our fate then.

"We could move up and down the play-off places or we could sneak into third if we win all three and others slip up.

"There are so many outcomes there’s no point looking at it. All we’ve got to do is keep winning because we want to finish the season as strongly as we started it.

“It’s going to be tough (against Yeovil). We look forward to what is going to be another good game - and hopefully a winning one.

"Darren Way’s done a fantastic job. They’re more or less safe now, but they’ll want to put that to bed sooner rather than later.

"They're a professional side but I'm sure they’ll enjoy it with the shackles off.

"We were in that situation last year and it felt so much easier because there was no pressure to go and do anything.”
