Kevin Nolan delighted with Notts County players' mentality

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has praised Notts County's mentality in claiming a fourth win on the bounce against Crawley Town on Saturday.

Jorge Grant bagged the winner from Jonathan Forte's cross-shot at the Broadfield Stadium to leave the Magpies in rude health at the top of League Two.

The Notts gaffer told the official site following the 1-0 win: “I’m absolutely delighted. The lads have got a mentality about them now.

“They’ve come here and made sure they played the way they wanted to play and countered Crawley’s strengths. I thought we deserved the win.

“When we’re not on top form in possession, we make sure we scrap and battle. Sometimes you’ve got to put your body on the line.”

“There’s more to come from these lads. Their confidence will grow and they’re learning every day.

“I feel we’re going to continue to get better if we can keep working the way we have.

“The attitude and application was absolutely fantastic today and that’s why we’ve won the game.”

There's certainly more to come in terms of the performance, though as I say and have repeatedly mentioned - this will come with further form and confidence. It just shows you how funny football can be!

In Kevin Nolan we trust.

I feel we’re going to continue to get better if we can keep working the way we have.

i feel the same way, i think things can only get better if we keep believing in them and the players continue to work hard.
