Kevin Nolan urges caution despite another "absolutely fantastic" Notts County win

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has described Notts County's performance in their 1-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers as "absolutely fantastic", but is not getting carried away with regards to the issue of League Two safety.

The Magpies are now 13 points clear of the division's bottom two after Shola Ameobi netted the winner in Saturday's victory at Adams Park.

With Newport County and Leyton Orient struggling for form and entrenched in the relegation places with just seven games to go, many Notts fans and pundits - including Mark Stallard - have breathed a sigh of relief and declared the club to be safe.

However Nolan, despite his delight with his players, does not want to take his foot off the pedal, telling the Nottingham Post: "We are still not mathematically safe and it's not done until done.

"But I was just so pleased with what we put on show. I thought we were absolutely fantastic. We really nullified Wycombe and their strengths. We were very worthy of the win.

"I was thrilled with the way we went about it because we didn't let them build momentum. It was a fantastic result because we've not only won the game, but we have kept a clean sheet as well against a team who pose a real attacking threat.

"We knew they were going to throw everything at us but I felt we dealt it with it very well. They had few half chances but it was tricky because the conditions were difficult.

"There was wind and the surface was a bit bobbly. But we played it very well and I am delighted to a man with all the lads. It was an excellent performance."

Just a simple message to keep people routed, nothing more. He's doing well, as are our lads. Just take each game as they go but we should be fine.
