Match Reaction: 'Confidence has come back to Notts County following victory over Yeovil Town'

Joe Jones

Notts County secured a spot in the League Two playoffs thanks to Saturday's resounding 4-1 win over Yeovil Town at Meadow Lane.

In addition, victory took the Magpies to within two points of third-placed Wycombe Wanderers - who lost 3-0 at Accrington Stanley - with two games left to play.

A superb own goal from Tom James and strikes from Elliott Hewitt and Lewis Alessandra added to Dan Jones's opener late in the first half, though Alex Fisher netted in injury time for the Glovers.

Here is some of the post-match reaction from the game at the San Sirrel.

Kevin Nolan

“I thought it was an outstanding performance and the score could have been more. It’s another great win to keep this momentum going.

“I’ve been saying all season long, we’re a team who have created lots of chances but we haven’t had that ruthlessness.

“We’ve worked doubly hard over the past few weeks to get more balls into the box and score more goals. Some of the goals and the finishing today was absolutely fantastic.

“The lads have stepped up to the plate over the past few weeks. They’ve been very positive and they’re driving each other on. I’m absolutely delighted for them.”

Dan Jones

“An air of confidence has come back. Training has been good, bubbly, sharp and intense.

"Everyone is smiling and we’re looking like we were at the beginning of the season.

“I love playing for the gaffer, the coaching staff and the boys. It’s a feel-good place with no negativity.

“We’re going a game at a time. We can only look after ourselves and keep winning.

“It’s nice to be part of a successful team - we have done really well.

"But we haven’t really thought about the play-offs yet. It’s another win and we keep the momentum going."
