Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County fans have seen what we can do when we click'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has praised Notts County following their impressive 4-1 win over Lincoln City, claiming that fans have finally seen what the Magpies can do once they click.

Notts rode out a tricky start at Meadow Lane to edge into a numerical advantage when Billy Knott was sent off for a high boot into the face of Ryan Yates.

The hosts then took the lead through Jon Stead and, despite being pegged back by Harry Anderson's equaliser, went on to strike thrice more, through Matt Tootle, Jorge Grant and ex-Imp Terry Hawkridge.

"I thought Lincoln started very well and put us on the back foot," Nolan told the official website. "They had a couple of good chances but once the sending off came, we dominated.

"It's all about how we react to the red card. You've seen it before - we've gone down to 10 men and won games.

"Just because it's 11 v 10 it doesn't mean you're going to win the game. I thought my lads handled it really well.

"We've been working hard and we're starting to click. You saw a lot of good combinations today. These boys have a lot of quality.

"When it went to 1-1 we could have buckled and felt the pressure of the crowd but we didn't - we thrived on it and showed our quality.

"Lincoln are a top side - they're going to be in and around it this year. It was a tough game today and there are a number of other top teams who we're going to have to battle it out against.

"But I think today, especially in the second half, you could see what we can do when we click."
