Kevin Nolan tips Notts County to overcome Crewe Alexandra "hiccup"

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan has described Notts County's 2-0 defeat at Crewe Alexandra as a "hiccup" and has tipped his players to bounce back this weekend.

The Magpies were simply not at the races at Gresty Road as goals from Michael Raynes and Jordan Bowery saw the Railwaymen claim all three points in Tuesday night's League Two encounter.

"It's a lesson," Nolan told the official Notts site. "I am not one to shout and bawl.

"I just try to encourage my players and give them the best advice I possibly can to do the right things.

"The players don't deserve a rollicking. They have been magnificent this season and that's why they are where they are in the table.

"What they need is someone to tell them where they went wrong and that's what I've done.

"I've been delighted with the lads but they have not hit their standards tonight, which happens sometimes.

"We're all disappointed but collectively we will work harder and get better from this.

"It just didn't happen for us but it was not because of the changes I made.

"We can't use it as an excuse because we have done it at other points this season and it's worked.

"We didn't manage situations as well as we have done this season and we didn't do what we normally do in playing to our tempo and controlling the game.

"Tonight is a hiccup and hopefully that's all it is. Now it's about reacting and making sure we are ready for Carlisle on Saturday."
