Kevin Nolan hints at changes for Notts County EFL Trophy meeting against Mansfield

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has suggested that he will make numerous changes to the Notts County starting XI for tonight's EFL Trophy meeting with Mansfield Town.

Although the Magpies boss is taking the much-maligned competition seriously, he appears eager for some of his lesser-used players to stake their claims for a first-team place at Meadow Lane tonight.

“It’s a great game for the players who haven’t had the exposure of minutes they perhaps would have wanted,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“It’s a chance for them to show me that they are ready and waiting so if we do get an injury, they are raring to go.

“We have a squad capable of handling the cup competitions as well as the league. So there’s no pressure on the players because they are part of this squad for a reason.

“They are pushing the 11 to new heights and maximum levels, but what they’ve got to do is now prove why we either retained them or signed them.

“They’ve got to enjoy it because it’s in a good competition, a great pitch, a great stadium and a great dressing room. Enjoy that fact, take the bull by the horns and express yourself.”
