Kevin Nolan happy with Notts County strength in depth and fluidity

Joe Jones

Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight at having a team with strength in depth which can be arranged in a variety of different formations.

The Magpies sit third in League Two and are unbeaten in six games in all competitions ahead of tonight's visit of Swindon Town.

With 46 games in the league campaign plus three cup competitions, Nolan is happy to feel that he can make widescale changes and still have a competitive team out on the pitch.

“We’ve been able to assemble such a good squad. We can now make five or six changes and it’s still a strong 11 which can get results in this division,” he told the Nottingham Post.

“We’ve got to make sure the lads are on it and grasp their opportunity.

“I would make five or six changes. I feel that on Tuesday I could make five or six with no doubt those who come in will be ready and raring.

“I’m looking forward to Tuesday and there will be a few changes coming.

“Last year we couldn’t make five changes and still feel it was a good team. I could make seven now and feel we’re still a good side in the league.

“We can move from a 4-4-2 to 3-5-2, 4-3-3, whatever you want. We don’t want lads to have the rabbit in the headlights look.

“We got it right at Port Vale when we went down to 10 men. It’s a nice arrogance to have. The lads had organised themselves before we even spoke to them. That’s what we want.”
