Kevin Nolan hails "proper man's man" Richard Duffy

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has described Notts County captain Richard Duffy as a “proper man’s man”.

The defender produced an impressive performance against former club Port Vale last weekend, helping the Magpies clinch a 1-0 win at Vale Park and helping them climb to fifth in the table.

It capped off what has been a good start to the season for Duffy who has been handed the skipper’s armband in the absence of injured midfielder Michael O’Connor - and is a huge turnaround from last season, when he was being derided by many Notts fans for poor performances.

“He was perfect (against Vale) and I’ve had full confidence in Duffer since I walked through the door,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He is a proper man and a proper man’s man.

“You can see that by the way he conducts himself on the pitch and the way he marshals the defence.

“He and Shaun Brisley are starting to form a great relationship. It’s a great partnership going forward.”

I wonder if he will aim to flip, fall or just stand static in defence on Saturday? He's alright, but I don't like his constant whining with players like Collin/Jones - or his lack of effort to get the ball in certain situations.
