  1. Notts County have won a place in the hat for the third round of the FA Cup after a last-ditch 3-2 win over Oxford City in Saturday's second-round clash at Meadow Lane. The Magpies took the lead in the first half when Carl Dickinson's cross was headed across the face of goal by Shaun Brisley and, with Oxford failing to clear their lines, Richard Duffy bundled home from point-blank range. Early in the second half, the non-league side struck an equaliser as Zac McEachran’s cross found Rob Sinclair on the edge of the box, who fired low into the corner of the Notts net. However, they were not level for long as, just three minutes later, Freddie Grant scythed down Terry Hawkridge in the box to give away a penalty, Jon Stead stepping up and confidently rifling low into the bottom corner. Notts were then pegged back again on 73 minutes when McEachran sent a low cross the way of Matt Paterson, who curled a neat effort into the top corner beyond Ross Fitzsimons. In the fourth minute of injury time, substitute Jonathan Forte's header was parried by Stevens into the path of Jorge Grant, who slotted home on the rebound to put Notts in the third round of the competition. How did the Notts fans, players and manager react to the win and the place in round three? Here's a compilation of post-match reaction from Pride of Nottingham. Kevin Nolan "I'm very relieved and rightly so because weren't up to scratch today. Oxford City came with a great gameplan and stuck to it, which knocked us out of our stride a bit. "But the resilience, togetherness and camaraderie the lads showed to score a last-minute winner again is absolutely fantastic and great testament to how far they have come in a short space of time. "We weren't at our normal levels today but we found a way to win, which is always a great trait to have as a team. "Oxford City were first-class and are very unlucky to be on the losing side. They played us really well and probably deserved more, but that's the drama of the FA Cup." Jorge Grant "Oxford City were very good. They were always going to come here and give it 100%. They shouldn't be as low as they are in their league; they played some good football and gave us a difficult test. "The gaffer told us to relax at half-time. They got under our skin a little in the first half; we were slashing at things and doing things we wouldn't normally do, so we had to keep our composure." Players on social media The Black and White Army on PON Ell100t: Don't think we played bad, Oxford City just gave it everything - it's the FA Cup. Into the next round importantly, no reply even better! Would love a prem team at Meadow Lane or an away tie at Tottenham (just to do a Wembley trip without the ballache of a cup run/ nerves of a playoff). On a side note, the thought of ever having to let go of Jorge Grant is getting more and more difficult. Jon Coleman: We weren’t brilliant and Oxford played well to the end lucky win but that’s the FA cup looking forward to the next round COYP Sandra Bryan: Don't give a **** how lucky we were we are in the next round we scored a winner in injury time and iam happy with that hard luck Oxford but that's Peter Walker: Weren't great or not very good!! Understatement we were dogs**t! Unlucky Oxford City but the dramas of the FA Cup!! James Spring: Right team won. We were far from our best and made a lot of silly errors. City had two efforts which both deflected in. They played well but we had enough chances to finish it at 2-1. As said above though, dont care how we won, we won and thats the only thing that matters Brian Barry: We weren’t great but in fairness to Oxford they battled hard. A win is a win. Into the next round. Need a massive game against Luton. Jasmine Victoira Cupit: The game play was not worth a win!! It was an embarasment. Oxford played that game amazing and they didn't deserve to lose!! Alan Longstaff: Very lucky to win today, Oxford played the better football Ian Ale Goode: We were not very good but we won so onwards and upwards Cecil Richardson: Just papering over the cracks Paul Ambrose: More jam than Hartley's xx Jo Warsop: Oh my word!!!!!

  2. Jorge Grant has described his last-gasp winning goal in the 3-2 FA Cup win over Oxford City as "one of the best feelings" he has experienced in football. The Nottingham Forest loanee struck deep into stoppage time with the scores level and the prospect of a second-round replay looming to put Notts into the third round for the first time in six seasons. Grant, who has been a sensation for the Magpies this season and last, scored his 14th goal of the campaign and was understandably delighted after the game. "I played the ball out wide to Terry Hawkridge and thought I had to get in the box to the back post," Grant told the official Notts site. "Luckily enough the goalkeeper parried the ball straight to me so I concentrated on not missing the target from two yards out! "The way the game was going was frustrating for us but afterwards was just relief for all the hard work we have put in through the week and the 90 minutes. It's one of the best feelings I have had." Speaking about Saturday's opponents, Grant added: "Oxford City were very good. They were always going to come here and give it 100%. "They shouldn't be as low as they are in their league; they played some good football and gave us a difficult test. "The gaffer told us to relax at half-time. They got under our skin a little in the first half; we were slashing at things and doing things we wouldn't normally do, so we had to keep our composure."

  3. Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton has confirmed that he has no plans to recall Jorge Grant from his loan spell at Notts County in January. The 22-year-old has been a revelation at Meadow Lane both last season, helping the Magpies survive in League Two, and this season, scoring 13 goals to help the club towards the top of the table. Warburton believes that Grant is in the best place to continue his development, as he is playing regular football in a side flying high, and admits that "all parties are benefitting from the agreement". “I have been asked by fans and I see comments on websites about it all the time,” Warburton told the Nottingham Post. “The first thing to say is that Jorge is benefitting from the loan and Notts County are benefitting from the loan and from his performances. That is the first point. “Secondly, he would have to come back here and be better than Daryl Murphy, better than Tyler Walker, better than Ben Brereton, Jamie Ward, Apostolos Vellios, Barrie McKay and all the other players in the squad. “And we do have good options; we have quality attacking options. So do you bring a player back to sit on the bench or just to be in the squad, or do you let him play and develop? “It is a big jump in level as well, have no doubt about that. All thought is always given to what we can do with loan players, but it has to be appropriate and it is all about the player’s development. “It is absolutely the right place for him to stay. He is playing, he is getting pitch time - he has gone out of the club to get that time. He is doing very well for Notts County and they are looking after him exceptionally well. “At the moment all parties are benefitting. He is doing well. Right now he is doing really well, he is scoring goals for them, they are top of the division and he is working hard. “Notts County are doing very well, they have a great set-up and all parties are benefitting from the agreement.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  4. Oxford City defender Freddie Grant is relishing the chance to go up against one of his old friends in Jorge Grant when the non-leaguers face Notts County in the FA Cup on Saturday. The National League South outfit overcame Colchester United in round one and will travel to Nottingham this weekend for the second-round tie against the Magpies. “Jorge grew up in Oxford, I’m from Reading and we have a few mutual friends so as soon as the draw was made we were messaging each other,” Freddie told the Post. “We haven’t spoken about football in too much detail, though we’ve talked about it being on television. “It’s going to be a massive game for the both of us and I think he’s been playing on the right so we could come up against each other. “We’ve got the same last name, it’s going to be fun. It’ll be the first time we’ll play with names on the back of our shirts, so it’ll be weird having Grant on the right wing and Grant at left-back, so that’ll be confusing for the commentators!

  5. Oxford City defender Freddie Grant has expressed his delight at the prospect of playing at Meadow Lane as his side prepares for an FA Cup meeting with Notts County. The non-league side overcame Colchester United in round one and will now travel to Nottingham for the second-round tie against the Magpies. Grant, who is the nephew of former Notts manager Martin Allen and also friends with his namesake Jorge, has described the game as massive and insists his side will not be intimidated by the Kop. “The ground and the crowd are certainly motivating all of our team. Our team gets encouraged by that and we’re not too afraid by that,” Grant told the Nottingham Post. “It’s massive and because I’m only 20 years old, I only had a year in professional football and never played at such an historic ground. “For a 20-year-old or ones coming to the end of their career, every single one of us is going to be buzzing to play at Meadow Lane - the massive Kop behind the goal is something we rarely see. “It’s massive, you’re pinching yourself up until it actually happens.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  6. Notts County claimed three points the hard way on Saturday after requiring a 94th-minute winner to see off Colchester United at Meadow Lane. Shola Ameobi's second-half penalty had given the Magpies the lead but substitute Sanmi Odelusi looked to have salvaged a point for the U's with his 89th-minute strike. However, there was time for more drama as Ryan Yates glanced home a header to seal victory for Notts in a last-ditch 2-1 win which sent Meadow Lane barmy. The result keeps Kevin Nolan's level on points with League Two leaders Luton Town and five points above the playoff places, a great position to be in ahead of a busy festive period in December and early January. How have the Notts County fans, players and manager reacted to the win? Here's a collection of the best responses. Kevin Nolan "It's a fantastic win. Colchester are a good outfit, they've asked us a lot of questions and taken us all the way to the wire. "We had to be on our mettle on both sides of the ball. They caused us a few problems but I feel we contained them quite well. "In the first half they played us really well and we didn't get any momentum or creativity going but in the second half, we dominated and looked more likely to win the game." Ryan Yates "I'm absolutely buzzing. We dominated the second half and got sucker-punched on the counter for their goal. But to come back and win shows the spirit of the team. "They were a good side. They did both sides of the game really well. They were winning more second balls, putting it in behind us and making things difficult. "We came in disappointed at half-time but had some firm words from the gaffer and put in a better performance in the second half." The players on social media The Black and White Army Who r ya?? You Pies: 3 very good points against a good side who caused us problems, and what were those offials doing some strange decisions to say the least, but the lads kept going to the wire and got a deserved win, well done from me, COYP Chris: First half was very daunting to watch, I didn't feel very comfortable and I felt it was a matter of time before they scored. However, they didn't quite have that threat on goal. I do feel they was unlucky, as Duffy elbowed and force one of the Colchester players down onto the ground (penalty any day for me). Thankfully it wasn't given, but I felt the first half was extremely poor. Second half, brilliant - things really clicked and I honestly felt we pressured them very well. We was unlucky at times as our build-up play was amazing and just the finishing which lacked, yet things can't be faulted. I felt the whole squad really put a solid performance and worked well. We deserved the points but what a fantastic save by Fitzsimons! Elite_pie: A difficult game to sum up, I can understand why the Colchester fans would go home disappointed, but after a poor first half I think we just about did enough in the second to earn the 3 points. This is just the sort of game we would have gained a point at best over the last few seasons, but Nolan seems to have instilled the 'never say die' attitude he always showed as a player into a fairly limited squad. It counts for a lot in this division, I've lost count of the number of points we've dropped at Meadow Lane simply because the away side were organised, worked hard, and wanted it more. To be sitting where we are on 41 points after just 20 games is way beyond my expectations, long may it continue. Liampie: i am pleased as i thought it was going to end up a draw before the game. even at times during the match i thought it was and it probably should have been with their penalty but i do also feel we was good enough to win. luton is shaping up to be the exeter kind of game now. TheSkipper: Yesterday is the type of game last season we would have lost and I thought Notts did a great job at pulling ahead once they had scored. I did not see the penalty, so I can't call it but the referee did seem keen to award something in their favour. Thought Notts played solid in midfield but we do need to be more organised at the back as I am concerned about these daft penalties. BromPie: I thought the referee was terrible, he killed the flow at times and tended to favour Colchester United. The result is just wanted we needed, so for that reason I am delighted. Notts never gave up and ended up getting what they deserved. What a result!

  7. Kevin Nolan has reiterated that Notts County want Jorge Grant to remain at Meadow Lane until the end of the season but insists that he doesn't "have to convince anyone to stay". The Nottingham Forest midfielder's deal with the Magpies runs until the end of the campaign but the Reds have an option to recall him in January. Grant has developed immensely as a footballer at Notts since his first loan spell last season and currently tops the League Two scoring charts with 13 goals, and Nolan believes that the youngster knows he's come a long way over the Trent. “I don’t have to convince anyone to stay,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “If Jorge wants to stay he stays, if he doesn’t, he doesn’t. “We want him here, he knows that. Jorge is enjoying his time here and knows that he is loved by everybody at the club. “He is thriving in this environment so why would you want to take yourself out of it? “If he goes anywhere else he has to make sure he is the number one man there or he is one of their top, top, players. “He’s got an environment that will help him develop as a player on and off the field. “I can only advise Jorge what I feel would be the best for him. I speak to him and his dad about that and I wouldn’t stand in his way if he had that offer if it was somebody who would help him get to that next level. “But at this minute in time, the best thing for Jorge is to be here. The more he stays with us, the more he will keep thriving.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  8. Jorge Grant has spoken of how a stressful week ended on a positive note thanks to football. The Notts County midfielder, who has recently got on the housing ladder, had to deal with flooding in his home due to plumbing issues. However, you wouldn't have known due to his impressive performance on the pitch, scoring twice to help Notts beat Cheltenham Town 3-1 and keep the Magpies top of League Two. “The drain is fixed which is good news, but there are a lot more problems than I expected,” Grant told the Nottingham Post. “But that comes with buying a house and it’s nice for the week to end the way it has. “It has been stressful because my mum and dad live away so I’ve had to deal with it myself. “I’ve got a few friends who have helped me out. When it first happened, I had never been in that position before. “But when you start playing football you forget about everything. And we really enjoyed ourselves out there.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  9. Notts County have extended their lead at the top of League Two thanks to their 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town on Saturday. The Magpies took the lead on the half-hour mark through Jorge Grant following Jon Stead's layoff but Carl Winchester hit back within five minutes to equalise. However, a quickfire double from Notts in the opening stages of the second half - through Grant and Shaun Brisley - gave Nolan another home win. Here is how the Notts fan base, players and boss reacted to the solid victory. Kevin Nolan "I'm absolutely delighted with the three points and I thought they were well-deserved. "You're seeing things which we're trying to recreate from the training ground, like passing patterns, which make the lads feel more familiar when they are in those positions on a matchday. "They are taking a lot on board. I'm delighted with some of the play in the last few weeks and there's still more to come." Jorge Grant "I thought we were good. They had some spells where they created chances but that's going to happen. We were strong in those situations and got our rewards when we scored. "We're dealing with the pressure better than we have before and it was another good performance from us. "Teams know what they're going to get and they have to bring their 'A' game, otherwise they're not going to win." The players on social media The fans TheSkipper: Good win yesterday, second half Notts stole the show and played some very good football. First half we don't need to mention. I am still unsure how exactly we scored but I did think Cheltenham came back well. Even in the second half they didn't look like they was out of it, probably one of the better games at Meadow Lane. Countyman: I barely noticed Hewitt's absence and I thought Milsom did a more complete job, did we miss Elliot at all? No. We have played some good football this season, at times we may have been lucky but yesterday was not one of them games. We deserved the points! Well done Notts. Jay Dalton: Notts will be champions or automatic I still believe they will be champions notts full of confidence all playing as a team no doubt Nolan has bought the believe in notts and got them playing proper football dead ball specialist grant again brilliant stuff first half bit lack lustre second half stepped up a gear and super notts shone through non stop attacking coyp Nolan's super notts black white army! Steve Brewer: Hey they were the worse team I have seen yet. Should have been well out of sight. But as usual we make a game of it. Saying that we do look like league leaders. The big No. 9 was awesome. Grant class. Hawks was good and so was Toots. Goalie is in for the season. Sorry Collin but he is well better. Luton looming Chris Buckley: We looked alright first half, but after they scored we just seemed awkward. We came out much stronger in the second half, several players clicking together to put on a very good display. Quite a crucial win in terms of staying top. Overall a good team performance and ultimately 3 points which will do nicely. #COYP Geoff King: At one one and kicking towards the kop I expected we'd take the three points and in the end so it proved John Weatherbed: One of the best games I have seen in a long time... Well done to all.. Was good to hear the support singing around the ground. Tracy Rigby: Awesome! Thank you Kevin Nolan in believing and showing the lads the way to win and you was a winner as a player and your a winner as a manager!

  10. Jorge Grant has paid tribute to Notts County strikers Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi following their 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town on Saturday. The midfielder took his tally for the season to 13 with his fourth brace of the season, with Shaun Brisley adding a third to keep the Magpies top of League Two. "Shola and Steady were unbelievable today," Grant told the official Notts site. "The ball stuck to them and they allowed the midfielders to come up and work off them. "The set from Steady for the first goal was perfect for me to run on to and hit first-time, so I have to give him credit for that because he's done it twice in the last couple of weeks. "I thought we were good. They had some spells where they created chances but that's going to happen. We were strong in those situations and got our rewards when we scored. "We're dealing with the pressure better than we have before and it was another good performance from us. "Teams know what they're going to get and they have to bring their 'A' game, otherwise they're not going to win."

  11. Notts County continue to march on in their quest for promotion from League Two with a solid 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town in Saturday's game at Meadow Lane. The Magpies were quick out of the starting blocks against the Robins, who were 16th in the table at kickoff, with Terry Hawkridge forcing a chested block from goalkeeper Scott Flinders after just three minutes. Jorge Grant and Ryan Yates then weighed in with efforts which were blocked as the visitors struggled to weather the hosts' attacking play, while Shaun Brisley hit the side netting. Jon Stead was next to threaten as he rifled narrowly wide after turning to collect a far post header back across goal, and Matt Tootle's swerving drive forced another save from Flinders. Eventually Kevin Nolan's charges broke the deadlock on the half-hour mark as Carl Dickinson’s crossfield pass into the box was headed down to Stead, who sized up a shot but instead decided to lay the ball off for Grant. It proved the correct decision as the Nottingham Forest loanee side-footed the ball into the top corner of the Cheltenham net to put the Magpies ahead. However, the visitors drew level out of the blue just five minutes later, the Notts defence guilty of switching off as Carl Winchester and Kyle Storer exchanged passes before the former drilled a low effort into the bottom corner. It could have gotten even worse for Notts in the second half as Cheltenham turned the screw and Harry Pell hit the top of the crossbar from a cross with Ross Fitzsimons struggling to scramble back. The new Notts, however, have more grit about them and, on 52 minutes, the unplayable Grant grabbed his 13th of the season when his 25-yard free kick took a heavy deflection and wrong-footed Flinders en route to the back of the net. And just two minutes later, a two-goal lead was established through Shaun Brisley, who finished off a move begun by a corner flicked on at the near post by Richard Duffy into his fellow defender's path, heading home to send Meadow Lane into a frenzy. Notts continued to push forward and Jorge Grant came close to sealing what would have been a well-deserved hat-trick when he weaved through the Robins defence but couldn't get the ball past Flinders. And although Cheltenham mounted a late fight-back, they couldn't get so much as a second goal to make things nervy as the Magpies saw the game out and built up their lead at the top of the table.

  12. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has revealed that he has had to tell Jorge Grant to stop being so critical of himself. The 23-year-old grabbed a brace against Newport County at the weekend, which saw him edge into the double figures mark for goals. During the 3-0 win over the Exiles, however, Grant's over-eagerness to impress - and its subsequent impact on his play - led to Nolan having to have a word with him. “I told him not to try to eat himself up,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “Sometimes he was trying a bit too hard to impress people instead of being normal Jorge and building himself into the game. “He was trying to force things and I just said ‘go back to your one and two touch’ because if there is one person in the squad who can do it more than others then it’s him. “You saw that against Newport. He had a few indifferent touches but I had a chat with him and just said to calm himself down. “He beats himself up too easily and he shouldn’t do that because he’s an outstanding talent. “We have to help him with that. But I thought he grew into the game on Saturday and showed some real touches of class.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  13. Jorge Grant feels he has come a long way as a footballer since first arriving on loan at Notts County. The 23-year-old, who is on the books of Nottingham Forest, linked up with the Magpies at the start of the year and played a big part in helping the club survive relegation from League Two. A new loan deal was subsequently agreed for Grant at the start of the current campaign and the youngster continues to impress, claiming seven goals and two assists so far in the league. “I think I have developed massively since I have been here,” Grant told the Nottingham Post. “If I look at myself when I came back here in January to the player I am now, I have improved so much both in my decisions on the ball and off it. “I think my defensive work, especially over the last three or four games, I’ve done a lot more than what I normally would do in a game. “So that side of my game is starting to come forward as well.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  14. Notts County returned to winning ways in emphatic style thanks to a 3-0 win over Newport County in Saturday's Meadow Lane clash. The visitors were reduced to 10 men in the 34th minute when Dan Butler was dismissed following an elbow on Matt Tootle. The Magpies went on to take fell behind shortly afterwards when Jorge Grant slotted home from Jon Stead's pass. Shola Ameobi then doubled the Magpies' advantage with a neat finish after 52 minutes, turning in a Grant cross. The Nottingham Forest loanee went on to score his second of the match three minutes later when he nodded in the rebound from his own saved shot. Grant sadly missed out on a hat-trick when his free kick rattled the woodwork, but Notts still saw out the game without a reply from Newport and, combined with Luton Town's defeat, went back to the top of League Two. Here is the reaction from the Notts manager, several players, and the Black and White Army following the superb win over the Exiles. Kevin Nolan “I was delighted with the performance and we were like our old selves again. It was what we were producing when we were at the top of the league the last time. It was high tempo and we dictated the play from start to finish. “We really made it difficult for Newport and I was delighted with the goals we scored and the clean sheet too. It could have been five, six or seven given the chances we created and I don’t think that would have flattered them. “Before the sending off there was a bit of anxiety, but I always felt we were in control but perhaps tried to force things a bit too much at times. But we started to settle and then the sending off came. But just because they have a man sent off it doesn’t give you an automatic right to win the game. “You have to earn it. We did that and we made them pay the price for being down to 10 men.” Jorge Grant “I’m really happy. It’s been five games without a goal so it was good to get three points and a clean sheet. “We came in with an attitude of ‘we’re not going to lose this game’ and maybe in the last few weeks we have let teams come on to us - but it was the opposite and it was proved in the final score. “We were confident. We’ve been working on being calm and composed around the box in training and picking out the final pass. We could have had a lot more than three goals. “It was a bit disappointing not to see the free-kick go in as that would have been a hat-trick and the first one of my career, but the win was all that mattered.” Players on social media The fans Who r ya?? You Pies!!: Worthy winners in the end, after a game that needed something to get it on its way, got the incident with the sending off we didn't look back after that could have maybe won by more and played some good stuff to boot, COYP back top, indeed the only way is up!

  15. Jorge Grant has praised Notts County's ruthlessness in front of goal as they returned to the top of League Two with a 3-0 win over Newport County on Saturday. The Nottingham Forest loanee bagged a brace either side of Shola Ameobi's strike at Meadow Lane and could have even claimed a hat-trick were it not for his free kick rebounding off the woodwork. “I’m really happy,” Grant told the official Notts site. “It’s been five games without a goal so it was good to get three points and a clean sheet. “We were ruthless in front of goal. We came in with an attitude of ‘We’re not going to lose this game’ and maybe in the last few weeks we have let teams come on to us - but it was the opposite today and it was proved in the final score. “We were confident. We’ve been working on being calm and composed around the box in training and picking out the final pass. We could have had a lot more than three goals. “The day after every game I watch it back and go through it with my dad, seeing what I could have done better or differently. I criticise myself quite a lot. “I have high expectations of myself so that’s why I beat myself up about certain things but the manager has given me little pointers and told me to go out there, express myself and enjoy myself because I am a better player when I do that.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  16. Notts County have returned to the top of League Two thanks to an emphatic 3-0 win over Newport County at Meadow Lane on Saturday. The hosts enjoyed the first opening of the game as Elliott Hewitt received a cutback from Jon Stead on the edge of the area and went for goal but sent his effort wide. Mike Flynn's charges responded through Dan Butler, who let rip with a powerful effort which Ross Fitzsimons did well to hold. Jon Stead then headed inches wide from Matt Tootle’s cross while Terry Hawkridge volleyed over, but on 33 minutes came the moment that turned the tide in Notts's favour. Butler was shown a straight red card after leading with his elbow when challenging Tootle in the air, leaving the full-back requiring treatment. The opening goal followed just two minutes later as Stead played in Jorge Grant, who coolly slotted the ball past Joe Day and into the bottom corner. Notts claimed a vital second early in the second half when Grant turned provider for Shola Ameobi to slam the ball past the Newport stopper after outsprinting Scot Bennett to the ball. The three points were sealed just three minutes later as Day saved well from Grant’s point-blank header but the playmaker’s second effort just crossed the line. Further chances came and went for Kevin Nolan's side, with Shaun Brisley being denied by a fine stop while Stead also went close and Grant missed out on a hat-trick with a free kick that came off the bar.

  17. Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight with Notts County's performance in their 3-0 win over ten-man Newport County and believes that the scoreline could have been even more flattering for the Magpies. Jorge Grant scored a brace for Notts in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane either side of Shola Ameobi's strike and only the woodwork denied the Nottingham Forest loanee a hat-trick from a free kick. “I was delighted with the performance and we were like our old selves again,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “It was what we were producing when we were at the top of the league the last time. “It was high tempo and we dictated the play from start to finish. We really made it difficult for Newport and I was delighted with the goals we scored and the clean sheet too. “It could have been five, six or seven given the chances we created and I don’t think that would have flattered them. “Before the sending off there was a bit of anxiety, but I always felt we were in control but perhaps tried to force things a bit too much at times. “But we started to settle and then the sending off came. But just because they have a man sent off it doesn’t give you an automatic right to win the game. “You have to earn it. We did that and we made them pay the price for being down to 10 men.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  18. Carl Dickinson has revealed he's been busy practising free kicks but insists Notts County's strength in depth from set pieces is impressive. Jorge Grant, Dan Jones and Dickinson have all scored directly from set pieces this season, the latter smashing into the top corner of the Mansfield Town net from 25 yards out. “It was great to score against Mansfield and I was delighted with it because I have been champing at the bit to take one,” Dickinson told the Nottingham Post. “I’ve been taking them in training and have been smashing them past Adam Collin, who has been getting a little bit wound up! “But we’ve got some great lads and great technicians who can do it. Jorge popped up with one and so has (Dan Jones). We’ve been a lot better from set-pieces as a whole. “We look dangerous and defensively we have looked really solid against them too. More goals from set-pieces is only going to help us.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  21. Kevin Nolan has expressed his desire to keep Jorge Grant at Notts County beyond January. The 23-year-old, who is in his second spell at Meadow Lane on loan from Nottingham Forest, has been a revelation for the Magpies. After scoring six times for Notts in the final three months of last season, Grant has netted eight in 2017-18 and is League Two's joint-top scorer. Nolan has confirmed that there is a release clause in his contract, telling BBC Radio Nottingham: "There is but not until January. We've just got to enjoy him while we've got him. "I'm sure we'll be having a bit of a discussion with (Forest sport director Frank McParland, manager Mark Warburton and assistant manager David Weir) that I can keep him until the end of the season. "I think we can keep improving him. We can still tweak a lot of stuff, and we're looking after him as much as we can as he hasn't had a full pre-season. We don't want to burn him out. "When you've got someone of his quality on the bench that you can bring on, it's brilliant. It's frightening what the chairman has allowed me to do in assembling a squad over the last year."

  23. Crawley Town goalkeeper Glenn Morris has paid tribute to Notts County following their performance and result in their 1-0 win at Broadfield Stadium. Jorge Grant scored the winner on Saturday, firing home from Jonathan Forte's slide pass, as the Magpies cemented their hold on second place in League Two. Morris said Notts are well worth their high ranking in the table as they put in a solid performance on the Red Devils' patch. He told the West Sussex County Times: “They managed the game well, we just couldn’t get our football going because they were breaking it up well, getting fouls, sticking the ball in the channels and doing the nasty side of the game. “They’ve got some experience in their team, they’re up at the top of the league this year and you can see why. “They’ve kept a clean sheet away from home, won 1-0 and go home happy. “They didn’t really cut us open and I didn’t have too many saves to make, it was just one of those games where it just drifted away second half. “It’s disappointing, but I think we’ve got to give them a little bit of credit for the way they dealt with it but we’ve got to be cuter and create some chances at home.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.
