Michael O'Connor cannot wait for Notts County to face Coventry City in League Two playoffs

Joe Jones

Michael O’Connor has expressed his desire to get stuck into the playoffs as Notts County find themselves just three games away from League One.

The Magpies finished fifth in League Two this season to get a shot at promotion, with Coventry City their semi-final opponents.

Notts will make the trip to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday before playing the second leg at Meadow Lane on Friday, May 18.

Club captain O’Connor, who has successfully overcome a major injury to return to first-team contention and made his first start of the season iagainst Luton Town on Saturday, is eager to get the playoffs underway.

“They are all good teams in the play-offs and any one of them would have been tough,” he told the Nottingham Post.

“You need to beat whoever is put in front of you and we beat Coventry here not too long ago.

“But in saying that they beat us in the first game of the season and we didn’t do too well there. That was a long time ago though. We are feeling confident, so bring it on.”
