Kevin Nolan has praised Notts County for getting a result in their final regular game of the League Two season against Luton Town and is optimistic ahead of the playoffs.
The Magpies finished fifth in the table with a point against the already-promoted Hatters in a goalless draw at Meadow Lane and will face Coventry City in the semi-finals.
“It was an enjoyable game for the fans because there were lots of chances and plenty of oohs and aahs,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.
“But I am delighted we got the clean sheet and I always thought it was going to be a tough game no matter what.
“We created chances although I thought we could put them under more pressure when they went down to 10 men.
“That’s something we can work on, but overall it was a good positive result to take into the play-offs.
“It was important that we got a result in that respect and I thought the way we bounced back from defeat to Grimsby was good.
“I love clean sheets and we’ve got one and that bodes well for the next couple of weeks.
“It’s been a fantastic 46 games and we’ve got two games now in a knockout competition and we’ve got to be better than Coventry over 180 minutes.
“If we are then I feel we will be going to Wembley.”
