Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County will learn from Coventry City game'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has reassured Notts County fans by saying they will learn from the Coventry City defeat and believes there will not be many more days like Saturday throughout the course of the season.

A Jodi Jones hat-trick saw the Sky Blues run out 3-0 winners over the beleaguered Magpies, who were acknowledged by their manager to have "got it all wrong" on the day.

“Saturday has just brought things back into perspective,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“Coventry have spent a lot of money on players that we couldn’t afford and with the experience they had, they handled the situation a lot better than us. Sometimes you have got to take your hat off and say ‘fair play’.

“One thing that I am trying to teach is that they can get there and they can compete on a weekly basis. I believe that they can compete with any in the league.

“On Saturday we didn’t, but I don’t feel there are going to be too many of those days from now until the end of the season.

“But we will get one and it’s how we react. It’s about learning from the experience we endured on Saturday, making sure we know when to say ‘oh this is another Coventry’ and do the basics.

“There’s a lot to learn and in four or five games we will start to judge.

"You can bring as many players as you want in during pre-season and say how great they’ve done, but you never know the true extent when they cross the line on a Saturday or Tuesday night.

“I do feel I have a great group of lads and a good squad which we can do good things with this year.”
