  2. Notts County head coach Ian Burchnall has urged his side to refocus for upcoming game against Torquay in the magpies' bid to regain their place in the English Football League. The Magpies take a trip to Torquay on Saturday in the 2nd stage of the National League play-offs. It follows a dramatic late 3-2 sway over Chesterfield at Meadow Lane. Speaking to BBC Radio Nottingham, Burchnall said: "They are a very good team, they nearly won the league, but finished second - they ran it really close "We know they've got a lot of quality. We really have to focus now, we have to bring ourselves down and refocus on the next game." The magpies' are now one game away from another trip to the National League Playoff finals at Ashton Gate after Mark Ellis racked up a last-minute goal to provide victory over Chesterfield in a game which saw them three times score after going behind twice in the match. The defender has scored six goals in 20 games since arriving at Meadow Lane from Tranmere Rovers in March. "He's got a massive head." Burchnall joked before adding: "He's brave, he puts his head on everything. He doesn't mind getting his face smashed in. He's been magnificent." Ellis was born in Devon and also made greater than 130 appearances for Torquay earlier in his profession. "They're a former club, but there's only one thing on my mind and that's to go there and win and get us to the final," the 32-year-old said. Burchnall believes the character revealed by his group of players since arriving as manager, 12 days after Ellis' arrival at the club has been vital. "We have it in the group. I saw it when I first came in. "We just needed to believe in what we were doing a little bit more, we just needed to believe in what we were doing a little bit more, We turned a corner a while back and they've not looked back since then."

  3. I still can't get over the final being played at Ashton Gate, yet at least the ground looks like a poor version of Meadow Lane.

  4. I was casually checking for updates whilst enjoying a beverage outside a pub in Skegness, felt disheartened when I saw Chesterfield took the lead and the next time I checked it was 2-1. The responses of comments I read on social media wasn't encouraging, I thought it was going to end up 2-1 to them. Then I got a goal notification that Kyle Wootton had scored, I felt encouraged and hoped he would bag his first hat trick for us. Surreal reaction when I jumped up, almost knocking the table as I shouted to my son that we had scored. I got a little nervous as the scorer wasn't named, so I was a bit mindful that it might be disallowed. Thankfully, Ellis popped up and I can't say how I hated keeping tabs on updates from the 90+ mark. I can't comment on the performance, though it seemed Chesterfield tried to kick off at times as a means to distract the game. Fantastic comeback and win, if we can improve defensively against Torquay it could be happy days. It's a positive change to see fans optamistic about the clubs' progression, I think we as a fan base is largely behind Ian Burchnhall now.

  6. Leigh is always quick to spread rumours of this kind, I'll buy it when I read it officially.

  7. Mate. If you’d seen how calm and collected Chicksen was on Saturday, he’d be first name on the team sheet. Admittedly, might be due to 3 at the back and it’s the better balance for him, whereas Rawlinson is totally lost in a 3. Enzio is a waste of a wage going forwards. He’s far too erratic. Sublime when confident, not good enough when he’s not. Dice roll to see which it’ll be each half. Ellis and Miller are definite. Lacey and Ellis at the back in a pair would work as well. I assume IB is looking at Chicksen at LB as well during training to see if he could cope there. Hope so, but not for me to judge as since his return, he’s been part of the 3 CB.

  8. Great spirit shown and great result. Torquay away next, 12.00 kick off seems strange. Torquay haven't won any of their last 4 games. 1-2 Pies.
