Kevin Nolan reveals "frank discussion" took place with Jonathan Forte

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has revealed that he engaged in a "frank discussion" with Jonathan Forte over the weekend in a bid to get a reaction out of him on the pitch.

The 31-year-old forward was left out of the Notts County squad which lost 3-0 at Coventry City at the weekend, but may be given a spot in the team for the League Cup visit to his former club Scunthorpe United on Tuesday.

Nolan did not elaborate on the content of the discussion between himself and Forte, but he suggested that there was an element of clearing the air, and both of them now "feel better".

“It was a frank discussion and it was needed,” the Magpies boss told the Nottingham Post. “I have a lot of respect for Forte as a player and as a person.

“I will always be honest, and I will never shy away from anything if something needs to be said.

“It was great to be able to sit down and have a chat. He feels better about it, I know I certainly do.

“I am hoping I can see a reaction from him and that he stakes his claim for a place in the team on Saturday. The ball is in his court as it is with all the lads.”

i dont get why we dont play him. hes a good striker and can play okay on the wing, but hes best upfront and since we have no pace at all there. would it not make sense to give him a chance?
