Kevin Nolan happy with selection headache ahead of Notts County, Chesterfield game

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has admitted that he will have "some hard decisions to make for Saturday" in terms of team selection for Notts County's home game against Chesterfield in League Two.

The Magpies made eight changes to their starting XI in Tuesday's League Cup game at Scunthorpe United following a poor 3-0 defeat at Coventry City last Saturday.

The much-changed Notts side put in a great display at Glanford Park, taking the lead and then twice pegging the Iron back after falling behind, only succumbing at the death on penalties.

“I’ve got some hard decisions to make for Saturday, but that’s what I want,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“We made eight changes on Tuesday, and I suspect many were thinking ‘oh this is a second team’. It wasn’t. It was a first team who had a lot of games between them.

“That’s why they were able to play the way they did on Tuesday and take on the information so quickly.

“To a man they were absolutely brilliant. Everybody contributed, even the lads who were sat in the stands.

“They got right behind the lads. Everyone did the club proud and I am delighted with that.”

It's actually not an headache for me, I think he should start the players that did well against Scunthorpe over those that didn't at Coventry. Give Dan Jones the chance to settle down but inform him we need a good standard of performance met, likewise if Duffy starts. Then allow Yates and Grant to feature, the rest picks itself.

The players do need time to respond from the opening defeat but we need a bit more quality injecting.

No headache at all, just common sense.
