Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County played like men'

Joe Jones

Not for the first time this season, Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight with another amazing performance from his charges.

What appeared to be a difficult proposition in League Two second-placed side Exeter City away on a Tuesday night ended up in a 3-0 win for the Magpies.

The win, brought about by Lewis Alessandra's early opener and a Jorge Grant brace, ensures that Notts pull away from the Grecians at the top of the table.

"Hats off to the lads - they were absolutely fantastic," Nolan told the official Notts site. "I'm absolutely delighted for them - they got exactly what they deserved tonight.

"Making that number of changes, you do have a little bit of a worry. But I trust these lads massively and they keep repaying me.

"We played like men tonight. We came here and believed. This is a difficult place to come to and we've got three points and another clean sheet.

"I keep saying there's more to come and I think you've seen glimpses of that over the last couple of games. I'm sure we can still get better - it's about me keeping feet on the ground.

"You won't see me celebrating too soon. What you'll see is us getting back to business tomorrow.

"The chairman's been absolutely fantastic in letting us stay over again tonight so the lads aren't getting home at 5am.

"They'll be in the gym tomorrow doing their cool down, making sure they're ready to go to Mansfield on Saturday and try to get another three points.

"If we can go there and get a result, everybody will be thinking 'what a week that is.'"
