Kevin Nolan questions why Notts County have given Mansfield Town so many tickets for League Two derby

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has questioned why Notts County have given Mansfield Town so many tickets but is eager for his players to do what they've been doing for most of the season when the two sides clash on Saturday.

The Stags travel to Meadow Lane for the 1pm kickoff, which will see two sides in the thick of the promotion race duke it out for points and, given the huge rivalry between the two, bragging rights.

“It’s just like any other rivalry and you live it and feel it,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.

“Everybody knows about it around the city and they’ve got 4,000 fans coming, which says it all. Although, I don’t know why we have given them that many tickets, I must admit.

“But I am looking forward to it. I don’t think I have managed to beat them since I’ve been here.

“We lost there earlier in the season, and then we lost in the Checkatrade Trophy when we made plenty of changes.

“We didn’t get off to the best of starts in that game as we conceded so early on, but I just think we are going to be really well prepared.

“If the lads can be what they have been for the majority of the season, then I feel we can come away with a really good result on Saturday and we will all be celebrating.

“That’s what we want. We want to keep plugging away and keep the momentum building.”

I find it amazing that they sell more tickets for this game than they do for some of their home games. It shows what it means to their fans and how important it is, I think this is communicated to their players which is why they seem to put in a super human effort when they come here, they always seem to be up for it more than our players. Hopefully that changes tomorrow,
