Notts County boss Kevin Nolan refusing to give up on League Two automatic promotion despite Accrington Stanley loss

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has refused to concede defeat in the chase for automatic promotion from League Two despite Notts County's latest bad result.

The Magpies are now seven points behind third-placed Wycombe Wanderers following their 1-0 loss at tabletopping Accrington Stanley on Easter Monday.

Mark Hughes's goal settled the contest in Lancashire where Notts hit the bar through Jonathan Forte, while Matty Virtue and Jorge Grant also squandered good opportunities.

“We’ve got 15 points to play for and if we get all 15 then who knows what can happen?” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“You can never stop believing but what we’ve got to do is keep doing what we have been doing all season and wait for the next one to come along.

“On Saturday that seven point gap could become a four-point gap and then the week after it could be one if we do our business.

“All we have got to do is get back to what we were earlier in the season. But I thought there were lots of positives to come from the game. I was just disappointed that we didn’t test their keeper enough.”
