Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County learned lessons from Derby County hammering'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has stated that Notts County's 4-1 hammering by Derby County at Meadow Lane would have been a learning curve for his players.

The Rams put the Magpies to the sword as Luke Thomas, Mason Bennett and Tom Huddlestone all scored, while Kane Hemmings scored a penalty for the hosts.

“When you get beat 4-1 and you don’t have a lot of the ball then it’s difficult for the lads,” Nolan said at full time. “But it gives them great exposure in terms of out of possession stuff.

“We haven’t done a lot of that yet so that’s something we can really focus and start working on it to make sure we are ready for August 4.

“It’s great having this type of opposition because it gives you something different to what we are going to be facing week in, week out in the league.

“For me, we are hoping to be up there and one of the best and when you play these teams you do nothing but learn.”
