Match Reaction: Swindon Town 1-0 Notts County, Saturday 30 December 2017

Joe Jones

Notts County have ended 2017 on a sour note as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Swindon Town on Saturday.

In a game of few chances, the Robins broke the deadlock shortly after the restart when Luke Norris drilled home Keshi Anderson’s low cross.

Notts came close to an equaliser in the dying stages of the game when Dan Jones saw a header tipped over the bar by Reice Charles-Cook, but it wasn't to be.

How did the fans react to the defeat and what did the gaffer have to say?

Here is a compilation of the key post-match reaction on Pride of Nottingham.

Kevin Nolan

“It was disappointing to end the year that way, but there was nothing really in the game.

“The conditions were tough and they probably mastered them a bit better than us.

“It spoils the game and the wind was always a factor. We couldn’t get to grips with it and we were below our normal levels.

“We more than matched Swindon and the goal we conceded was sloppy by us. It was really poor defending from our point of view and they punished us for it.

“They didn’t create many chances although they hit us on the break a couple of times.

“But given the year we’ve had I never get too down when we have lost, or don’t get too high when we win.

“It’s about keeping a happy medium and the good thing is we have a game to bounce in the next 48 hours."

The Black and White Army

Wal Shardlow: We are completely and utterly **** we are only 2nd in the league and and unbeaten at home wish we were bottom and fighting for our league status like every year **** sake get behind the lads win loose or draw this is a good season

Mariusz Cwiklinski: I started supporting the pies in 1968, I am the eternal optimist, but I'm not going to kid myself. Notts are pretty **** really, if it wasn't for the 2 forest lonees we would and make no mistake, be struggling at the wrong end of the table. I'm not moaning, but we have no forward back up, Stead holds the ball up well, Grant as mentioned, scores but when Shoela or Forte don't score or contribute, we are ladies and gentlemen, quite frankly very poor. No striker in January, no promotion......simples! 😞

Trevor Robinson: It's about time the fans got a bit more vocal ffs !

Neale Tristram: Some work in the transfer window needed to maintain our position. Proven goalscorer and a CB

John Weatherbed: Not good only one shot at goal not even on target... Missed a good chance again

Mark Cotton: Missed the golden chance to catch up top spot
