Kevin Nolan eager for Liam Noble to give him selection headache

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan is looking forward to Liam Noble being back to full match fitness and giving him a selection headache when picking the Notts County matchday squads.

The midfielder, who registered for the club at the start of the month after rejoining from Forest Green Rovers, has so far made two substitute appearances, against Brentford and Lincoln City.

“We already knew that Nobsa had a lot of ability which is why we made him a major target in the summer,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“He has a great footballing brain and what we have to make sure of is that we get the best out of him and we don’t see the Nobsa that was here a few years ago.

“He’s been out of the game a few months so it’s going to take him time to find his feet. But the good thing is that he has seen how we work, what is expected of him in whatever position he plays.

“I feel he is just biting at the bit for that opportunity and chance. All it does is gives me an extra selection headache and puts people on their toes. Players in position now know he is breathing down their necks.”

It will take time but so far, he's been pretty quiet.

Once he scores that should have a knock on effect. Confidence lifts and we might re-see the Noble we hope to see, rather than the rash challenges (which on his debut didn't impress me at all).
