Liam Noble: 'I must get rid of reputation as a volatile player'

Joe Jones

Liam Noble has vowed to try and get rid of his reputation as a volatile player as he insists he will not "blow up" when provoked on the pitch any more.

The 26-year-old was sent off five times during his first two seasons at Notts County but has not been shown a red card in more than 70 games since his spell at Forest Green Rovers and subsequent return to Meadow Lane.

“I have this bad reputation for being sent off but I’ve not had a red card in 70-odd games now so that needs to go now,” Noble, who scored the opener in County's 2-1 win at FGR, told the Nottingham Post.

“People are waiting for me to blow up but it isn’t going to happen. I am 26 and if people are kicking you then they are doing it for a reason – because you are a good player.

“When I was 21 or 22, I would have volleyed them back. I just need to get this rid of this reputation. I played 50 games last season and another 25 this season for Notts and Forest Green and not one red card.

“The gaffer said that if I got sent off for something stupid then I would never play for him again. That was only right. I think that will be the case until the end of the season until I gain his trust as well.

“He felt the need to pull me and say don’t get sent off so there’s probably some doubt in there. Hopefully I can keep proving him and everyone else wrong.”
