Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County cannot yet dream about anything'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has urged Notts County's players to keep their feet on the ground and concentrate on the task ahead in the playoffs, stressing that they "can't really dream about anything".

The Magpies finished fifth in League Two this season to get a shot at promotion, with Coventry City their semi-final opponents.

Notts will make the trip to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday before playing the second leg at Meadow Lane on Friday, May 18, and should they be successful, Wembley beckons.

“I have great belief in these lads and what we’ve done all season long,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“I am sure if you asked Mark Robins he would say the same about his Coventry team.

“He’s a great fella, Mark, and I am looking forward to pitting my wits against him.

“Hopefully I am the one who succeeds, but no matter what we will have a beer afterwards.

“And I hope it’s me who is getting the congratulations and we are going to Wembley.

“But there is so much work to be done before then that we can’t really dream about anything.

“We’ve got to concentrate on Coventry now, and while the lads can enjoy what they’ve done over 46 games, it’s back to work (this week).

“We will look at what we need to do to ensure we get to Wembley.”
