  3. Match Discussion: Game 9 - The Imps (H)

    thought both teams was pretty poor first half, no real goal threat from either. notts deserved the win and some of the possession was great! i dont think the red card changed much, lincoln played as if they had 11 men but was not able to defend properly when it mattered. solid win really.

  6. Kevin Nolan has praised Notts County following their impressive 4-1 win over Lincoln City, claiming that fans have finally seen what the Magpies can do once they click. Notts rode out a tricky start at Meadow Lane to edge into a numerical advantage when Billy Knott was sent off for a high boot into the face of Ryan Yates. The hosts then took the lead through Jon Stead and, despite being pegged back by Harry Anderson's equaliser, went on to strike thrice more, through Matt Tootle, Jorge Grant and ex-Imp Terry Hawkridge. "I thought Lincoln started very well and put us on the back foot," Nolan told the official website. "They had a couple of good chances but once the sending off came, we dominated. "It's all about how we react to the red card. You've seen it before - we've gone down to 10 men and won games. "Just because it's 11 v 10 it doesn't mean you're going to win the game. I thought my lads handled it really well. "We've been working hard and we're starting to click. You saw a lot of good combinations today. These boys have a lot of quality. "When it went to 1-1 we could have buckled and felt the pressure of the crowd but we didn't - we thrived on it and showed our quality. "Lincoln are a top side - they're going to be in and around it this year. It was a tough game today and there are a number of other top teams who we're going to have to battle it out against. "But I think today, especially in the second half, you could see what we can do when we click."

  7. Match Discussion: Game 9 - The Imps (H)

    @AndersonforOlympics: What did you think of the game? I spoke to quite a few Lincoln City fans after the game, in fact the majority approached me (as I was walking with my camera). Heard some positive comments about us being the best that Lincoln have played, and how the red card didn't really change much but that it would have been nice to see a more even game. I was kinda nervous leading into the game, but you guys did well. Interested to see your thoughts pal.
  8. Notts County's amazing form shows no sign of letting up with a fifth win on the spin, a 4-1 hammering of local rivals Lincoln City at Meadow Lane. The Imps were quicker out of the starting blocks as Josh Ginnelly saw an effort tipped over the bar by goalkeeper Adam Collin and from the resulting corner, defender Sean Raggett headed over when unmarked. Kevin Nolan's charges were under the cosh as Lincoln sought the breakthrough, but they found themselves a man down when, 28 minutes in, midfielder Billy Knott was dismissed for a high foot on Ryan Yates. With seven minutes of the first half remaining, a deep cross from the left by Rob Milsom found its way to Jon Stead, whose shot on the turn took a deflection to wrongfoot opposition goalkeeper Paul Farman. It didn't take long for Lincoln to draw level after the restart, however, when Josh Ginnelly's delivery was nodded home at the far post by Harry Anderson. Nolan's Notts are made of stern stuff though, and rather than letting their heads drop, the Magpies went ahead again on 55 minutes. Stead turned provider, doing well to pick out Matt Tootle in the box, and the eccentric full-back's low drive flew into the bottom corner - cue the slug celebration. On 71 minutes, Notts found the killer third in spectacular fashion as Elliott Whitehouse was penalised for a foul on the left corner of the penalty area. Jorge Grant stood over the free kick and, from a tight angle, whipped in one of the most accurate curling shots you will ever see, finding the top-right corner of the Imps via the post. And for the cherry on top, former Lincoln hero Terry Hawkridge got off the mark for his new club - against his former employers - cutting inside from the left, finding space for himself and curling the ball low past the stranded Farman late on.

    As written by Chris the first half was a write off, neither said played well but the referee didn't help. Second half very entertaining, Lincoln City deserve praise for pulling level but its good to see Notts showing determination to get the lead back. Once we had it, it was never going to change. First time for a number of seasons where the majority of players seemed eager to score, anyone could have done today.
  10. Scouting Report: Lincoln City (H), 23 September 2017

    Watch out @Chris, Kevin Nolan and co are reading your thoughts!
  11. I thought Jon Stead played better today, he took his goal well but I have also voted for Terry Hawkridge due to his all round effort.

    Its about time we thrashed someone in this division, great all round performance by Notts. WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE!
  13. Match Discussion: Game 9 - The Imps (H)

    I could completely forget about the first half, it was just very poor and despite taking the lead it just wasn't memorable at all. Lincoln City had the right idea at first, however their constant time wasting and diving became frustrating to watch. Their keeper was a shambles but I don't really want to dwell on this negative side. Second half was much better! I keep saying we are a capable team and very good when we pass the ball on the ground. Them pulling level was a warning sign for us, yet pulling back ahead gave us confidence. The passing at times was a joy to watch, as was each of the three goals in the second half. I don't think we can say Lincoln was a poor side, they just didn't help themselves and really they seemed to give up. I do feel the red card was somewhat soft, yet if you go by the rules he had to go. It was dangerous and he shown his studs, horrible challenge.
  14. I think we played very well as a team, once we got the ball on the floor and the confidence grew - Lincoln City just found us hard to play. Overall I think Terry Hawkridge wins it for me. He ran his socks off, always looked comfortable and deserved that goal towards the end.

  19. Match Discussion: Game 9 - The Imps (H)

    I'm going 2-1 county but do feel Nolan will make a few changes or rotate which ever is the more applicable. I've got a feeling. That forte may start he has been looking good on off the bench appearance and I've got it on good word he is chomping at the bit to start the game or for game time is Kevin trying to rev him up and let him loose i hope so. I'm going with forte and stead to score. And also another good performance from Collins in goal who has really done well to cement his place with the arrial of Fitzgerald. I'm also wanting there to be a error from the league leaders as well. Top of the table sounds to me. But right now small steps which Kevin is putting together like a well oiled machine. County will need to be careful we are ridding a streak which I'm sure the visiting side will want to end. You pies

  23. Kevin Nolan has shown confidence in his Notts County charges ahead of the Lincoln City game, saying they need to have an air of invincibility about them. The Magpies' record ahead of Saturday's League Two derby is impressive - an eight-game unbeaten run in all competitions, four league wins on the spin, no goals conceded in that time, and no defeats at home since the Portsmouth game last season. Despite saying he "expects us to win", Nolan is nonetheless stressing for the umpteenth time that his players must not get complacent. He told the Nottingham Post: “It’s a game I’m truly looking forward to. Our first game here was Mansfield and they brought 3,500.Hopefully we have the same atmosphere as that day. “Sometimes players can get carried away. The lads can’t get carried away that they’re bringing 4,500 or there could be 15,000 there. “The lads can’t get carried away from what they’ve been doing over previous weeks. Sometimes it’s about bringing them down and taking some wind out their sails. “You don’t want them steaming in and getting sent off in the first minute because they feel that’s what you do in the big derbies. We’ve got to play in the right manner and have the right temperament. “We’re at home. We’re expected to win. I expect us to win because that’s what we’ve built. We’ve got a mentality we can beat anyone, if we turn up and do what we’re supposed to do. “That’s how I feel about anyone who comes to Meadow Lane. That’s the invincibility we’ve got to have as a squad and a club. We’ve got to have the fans keep behind us. When that happens it makes things easier. “Lads can’t just expect to win, then complacency sets in. Then they do things they’re not supposed to. I’ve got to make sure the staff don’t get complacent. We have to raise our game day in, day out. “We’ve got a lot to work on to make sure we hopefully get the points. It’s going to be massively tough. We’ll be making sure we counter their strengths. Lincoln have them in abundance.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.
