Kevin Nolan admits nerves may have hindered Notts County against Forest Green

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has admitted that nerves may have got the better of his Notts County players against Forest Green on Saturday.

The Magpies seemed a shadow of the side that enjoyed a near-perfect September as they fell behind to an Omar Bugiel goal and stole a 1-1 draw via a late Rob Milsom equaliser.

“As a management team we will sit down and think of ways we can help the players,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“I just felt on Saturday we went away a bit from the tempo we usually play at. We played to Forest Green’s instead and we didn’t exploit their weaknesses.

“We seemed a bit nervous and we want to take that away from them. They have to realise they are at the top of the league for a reason – and that’s because they are good players.

“They do the right things more often than not. Nerves are when I first walked through the door in January and you are second from bottom.”
