Kevin Nolan: 'I don't want a basketball match against Chesterfield'


Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has urged his players to ensure Notts County's game against Chesterfield on Saturday does not turn out to be a "basketball match".

The Magpies have played two games so far this season, against Coventry City in League Two and Scunthorpe United in the League Cup, and both of those saw his charges concede three goals.

With the Spireites coming to Meadow Lane at the weekend, Nolan is clear about what he wants from his players.

Though acknowledging Chesterfield have not had a good start to the season either, Nolan is aware they'll be dangerous.

“They (Chesterfield) lost to Grimsby on the opening day and then had a heavy defeat to Sheffield Wednesday,” he told the Nottingham Post.

“But they are a good side and they will come to try to cause us problems.

“Having played against Gary (Caldwell) a few times, he likes to play the game in the right way.

“I am expecting it to be a good spectacle, but I don’t want a basketball match. I want a clean sheet and a win.”
