Kevin Nolan pleased with Notts County recovery at Colchester United

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan was pleased with Notts County's second half performance against Colchester United, coming from a goal down at the break to run out 3-1 winners at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The Magpies trailed at half time to Drey Wright's ninth-minute opener but scored three goals after the restart, through Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy, to seal victory in Essex.

“We didn’t match the standards we set last week against Coventry,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“I challenged them to get back to there and show what they have shown all season which is togetherness, character and spirit.

“I just thought we looked off it and we allowed Colchester too much time on the ball.

“When you do that with a good side they punish you and we were lucky to get it at 1-0.

“But at the score you are always in the game. We did all the right things in the second half and I thought the goals were fantastic.

“We got them at the right time and the lads’ character was brilliant in the second half.”
