Kevin Nolan: 'Luton Town game a fantastic opportunity for Notts County to prepare for League Two playoffs'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has described Notts County's League Two regular season finale against Luton Town as a "fantastic opportunity" to prepare for the playoffs.

The Magpies' 2-1 loss at Grimsby Town, combined with Wycombe Wanderers' 2-1 win at Chesterfield, saw the Chairboys fill the last top-three spot in the table.

Notts cannot finish any higher than fourth or lower than seventh, but before navigating the playoffs, must first see out the 46th and final fixture, and awaiting them on Saturday is second-placed Luton.

“It’s just about making sure now that we’re ready and we’re prepared for the playoffs,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“There’s no better time to do it than start with a fantastic opportunity and a fantastic game with Luton who were deservedly going up.

“They are going to bring 4,000 plus fans and it’s going to be a great atmosphere and a great occasion.

“Then we know we’ve got the business of two games which is going to give us the season highlight or lowlight.

“But I said to all the players that no matter what happens from now on, I’m proud of every one of them for what they’ve done and what we’ve done as a team this year.

“We’re just hoping that we can get over their final hurdle now.”
