Kevin Nolan has hailed his Notts County side for showing their “inner strength” to help preserve their unbeaten record at Meadow Lane.
The Magpies put in a meek showing against Forest Green but managed to claw a point thanks to a 96th-minute equaliser from Rob Milsom on Saturday.
FGR, managed by former Notts boss Mark Cooper, led for more than an hour courtesy of Omar Bugiel’s opener, but left Nottingham having had to share the points in a 1-1 draw.
“We didn’t play well, but we showed we have inner strength and belief that you can get something no matter how bad you are playing,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.
“We always say try to stay in the game for as long as possible because you never know what can happen.
“They did that. We all weren’t great. We just waited for that chance and when it came along, we put it away.
“In the end we got a great result when we looked like we were heading for defeat.”
