Kevin Nolan: 'Jorge Grant is a special kind of player'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has reiterated that Jorge Grant is a special talent as he continues to conjure up the magic for Notts County.

The 23-year-old loanee registered his 14th goal of the campaign on Saturday as he helped the Magpies into the third round of the FA Cup.

In the second-round meeting with Oxford City, Grant was perfectly placed in the box to smash home a rebounded shot in the 94th minute for a 3-2 win.

“We speak to Jorge about it, it just comes to him in the box. It’s not him being lucky, it’s having a nous to be able to do that,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“For me, that’s what he is. He’s a special kind of player because even if he’s not having a major impact on the game, he can pop up with something.

“He’s the furthest one out of the box and he’s the one who ends up scoring a goal and it’s a testament to what he does and the work he does on the training ground and he’s getting better and better.

I think it's true to say that we might have been a little 'lost' without him this Season...and when he (chooses to) turn it on, he can be magic.

I'd like to see the Gaffer say nice stuff about Forte too, one time this season! The guy - as far as I'm concerned - 'dogs' for us every time he gets on the pitch but rarely/never gets a good word said about him. He must feel VERY 'unappreciated' at the club and I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't ship out in January...for opportunity of the full-time football place, I think he's worth!
