Match Reaction: Crawley Town 0-1 Notts County, Saturday 16 September 2017

Joe Jones

Notts County have secured a fourth win in a row as they saw off Crawley Town by a score of 1-0 in Saturday's trip to Broadfield Stadium.

Jorge Grant was the hero once again for the Magpies as he drilled home from close range after Jonathan Forte played a low ball into the loanee's path.

The result keeps Notts second in the table and takes their unbeaten run to eight matches, ensuring yet another weekend of smiles for the Black and White Army.

Here is some of the reaction from some of the Notts players, the manager, and the Black and White Army.

Kevin Nolan

“I’m absolutely delighted. The lads have got a mentality about them now.

“They’ve come here and made sure they played the way they wanted to play and countered Crawley’s strengths. I thought we deserved the win.

“When we’re not on top form in possession, we make sure we scrap and battle. Sometimes you’ve got to put your body on the line.”

The fans

TheSkipper: Solid win for Notts. Will always take the victory over the performance because we have done well before and not got what we deserved. I am 100% sure Kevin Nolan will soon get the performances spot on. What another fantastic win!

Liampie: "We can't complain about the performances when we are winning like this. Notts just seems to be a different team this season, perhaps we are finally having a bit of luck now?"

WeymouthPIE: "Not a game which was easy on the eye, but a win is a win. You don't get any extra points for playing pretty football, 3 points is 3 points. You can tell we've built that winning mentality, and we  have learnt how to dig results out. We're learning how to do jobs against the s**t in this division. These last 4 games, we probably wwould have lost 2 or 3 of them the last couple of seasons. It's early days. I'm not getting carried away, after the last few seasons I'm more than happy to enjoy the ride and see where we end up. But this is very much a team to be proud of right now. YP"
