Terry Hawkridge has echoed Kevin Nolan's sentiments in hailing Notts County's 4-1 win over Lincoln City as a display of a team at the top of their game.
The Magpies took the lead in the 39th minute through Jon Stead and, even though Harry Anderson grabbed an equaliser for the Imps, further goals from Matt Tootle, Jorge Grant and Hawkridge sealed an impressive win in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane.
"We knew it was going to be a tough game because Lincoln are a good team," Hawkridge told the official Notts website. "We showed our class in the second half and got the goals we needed.
"We used the sending off to our strengths and we moved the ball well in the second half. We tired them out and the goals came.
"They were all good goals. For a right back, it's a great finish from Toots and Jorge probably shouldn't be scoring a free-kick from there but he's put it right in the top corner! Steady's was a good finish, too.
"It's a good win but it's still early doors and we have to now focus on the Exeter game on Tuesday night.
"It's going well but we're only nine games into the season. We have a long way to go and we just need to keep building on what we've been doing."
