Haydn Hollis warns Forest Green Rovers: 'Notts County always score late goals'

Joe Jones

Former Notts County defender Haydn Hollis has warned his Forest Green Rovers teammates not to switch off for a second in Saturday's League Two clash at the New Lawn as the Magpies "always score late goals".

The 25-year-old came through the ranks at Meadow Lane and made upwards of 100 appearances for Notts between 2011 and 2018, but was moved on by Kevin Nolan in January as he linked up with former boss Mark Cooper in Nailsworth.

Hollis was an unused substitute in the reverse fixture back in October as Notts fought back from a goal down to claim a last-gasp 1-1 draw thanks to Rob Milsom's 96th-minute leveller.

"I was on the bench that day and I thought Forest Green were probably one of the best teams I'd seen at Meadow Lane this season,” he told the official FGR website.

"From what I saw before to what I see now, we look a lot more solid and organised. We've brought players in that are a little bit different to what was here before.

"I think we can get something out of the game. I think we've proven that playing Coventry, Crawley, teams that are up and around them and we've been better than them.

"That comes down to us executing the job the manager puts out there so as players we can take a little bit of credit for that but the manager as well put a great game plan together against Crawley.

"[Notts] always score late goals. They've got a good set of lads there and a good self-belief. If you look back, they score lots of late goals and keep going and are mentally very good.

"Their strike force probably has 200 Premier league games each, they are very experienced and know how to play the game."
