Kevin Nolan and Richard Duffy discuss Notts County trialists

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has earmarked Callum Saunders and Dean Hodge as two Notts Country trialists that he will take a closer look at in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Magpies defender Richard Duffy has had good words to say about Pierce Bird.

Speaking about Saunders and Hodge, Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "I've know Dean (Saunders) a while now and he's a good fella.

"Some of Callum's movement was really sharp in the game on Saturday. I thought he could have done better with his one on one, and I think he will be disappointed with himself too.

"Elliott did himself no harm at all either. We will have a closer look at them two in the coming week or so then we'll then take it from there."

Speaking about Bird, meanwhile, Duffy said: "Pierce has done really well. I was speaking to the gaffer and he told me what level he has come from.

"I was quite surprised because I hadn't realised the level of football he has been playing at.

"But to come in and settle like he has in a dressing room of big characters and big names is a credit to him.

"In the two games we've played he's done really well. But now we are playing against better class opposition we will see what he is made of."
