Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has praised the fitness levels of his players, insisting that the last-gasp 2-1 win over Colchester United is testament of that.
The Magpies did not let their heads drop after conceding an 89th-minute equaliser to the U's on Saturday and persevered right until the end, when Ryan Yates struck the winner.
"I'm delighted with what they're doing at the minute and I'm sure all the fans are going home proud of them for what they have achieved so far," Nolan told the Nottingham Post.
"These lads have played three games in a week and you can see how fit they are and how strongly they are finishing games.
"Wherever I have been successful in my career we have never given up and we have always run ourselves into the ground - today was another example of that.
"It shows the character of the team and that's what has impressed me most again. I witness it day in, day out.
"They have shown over the course of the season so far that they have togetherness, a willingness not to be beaten and they don't stop."
