Kevin Nolan hails "well-deserved" Notts County win at Forest Green Rovers

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan is "absolutely delighted" with Notts County's 2-1 win at Forest Green Rovers and feels the victory was "well-deserved".

The Magpies had not won away since Boxing Day and it looked like Saturday's League Two game at the New Lawn was going to finish as a draw following goals from Liam Noble and Tahvon Campbell.

But County managed to claim all three points when Matt Tootle struck a late winner and kept the visitors third in the table, with their automatic promotion hopes still alive and kicking.

"I'm absolutely delighted and thought the win was well-deserved," Nolan told the official Notts site. "The lads were magnificent and stuck to the gameplan brilliantly.

"We knew they would have a good go a us in the second half and they put us under a bit of pressure.

"Tahvon Campbell came on, scored a fantastic goal and then smashed one off the bar from 25 yards.

"A few weeks ago that would have hit Adam Collin on the back and gone in.

"We limited them to few chances and, if we upped our quality on the ball when we won possession back, we could have punished them a lot more."
