Jorge Grant hopes Fortress Meadow Lane can help Notts County vanquish Coventry City

Joe Jones

Jorge Grant is hoping to make use of Meadow Lane as a fortress on Friday night in a bid to overcome Coventry City in the second leg of their League Two playoff semi-final.

The tie is evenly poised at 1-1, though it should be a goal up to the Magpies were it not for the referee's outrageous decision to award the Sky Blues a late penalty in the first leg.

However, Grant remains positive, both of County's performance at the Ricoh Arena and the prospect of being still in the tie ahead of welcoming Coventry to the San Sirrel.

“I am happy we are still in the tie,” the attacking midfielder told the Nottingham Post. “We had a game plan and we executed it really well.

“It’s now all guns blazing on Friday and what we’ve got to do is put our home record to good use.

“I think every team that has come to Meadow Lane has found it really difficult. We’ve built it into a fortress and hopefully that will go in our favour.”

I have a feeling this is going to be a good match and team performance from what I’ve read on social media the players are up for the match and grants words about it being a fortress definitely tie in with what the current mood is from fans and the team alike. With this being the most important game this season so far I hope  that medow Lane dose become a fourtress and the players are fired up.
