Kevin Nolan: 'We can match anyone on our day'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan admits he and his Notts County side cannot rest on their laurels ahead of Saturday's League Two home game with Yeovil Town, but insists that they can match anyone on their day.

The Magpies boss is yet to taste defeat at Meadow Lane since taking charge on January 12 and his side are unbeaten in their previous three matches, which has seen them rise from dead-certs for relegation to having a fighting chance.

"I was always confident of staying in the division and I was always confident of doing it with this squad," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "But it's alright saying that, we've got to prove it.

"While we took seven points out of nine in the last week, we could go and lose the next three games. Everybody would then be saying we are back in a scrap at the bottom so we can't rest on our laurels.

"We have proven we are a good side and that we can match anyone on our day. That's what we have to prove again on Saturday. They have set the standard and the players cannot drop below it, or they will have me to answer to."

"To pick up seven points out of nine was a massive week for us, and I was delighted. It gives us a bit of breathing space from the bottom two but that's all it was – a good week.

"My priority now is the home form which has been fantastic since I came in and we are going to keep working hard to make sure we try to do our best to win the three points on Saturday."
