Jorge Grant hails Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi following Notts win over Cheltenham

Joe Jones

Jorge Grant has paid tribute to Notts County strikers Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi following their 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town on Saturday.

The midfielder took his tally for the season to 13 with his fourth brace of the season, with Shaun Brisley adding a third to keep the Magpies top of League Two.

"Shola and Steady were unbelievable today," Grant told the official Notts site. "The ball stuck to them and they allowed the midfielders to come up and work off them.

"The set from Steady for the first goal was perfect for me to run on to and hit first-time, so I have to give him credit for that because he's done it twice in the last couple of weeks.

"I thought we were good. They had some spells where they created chances but that's going to happen. We were strong in those situations and got our rewards when we scored.

"We're dealing with the pressure better than we have before and it was another good performance from us.

"Teams know what they're going to get and they have to bring their 'A' game, otherwise they're not going to win."
