  2. Notts County have climbed to second in League Two following Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Swindon Town at Meadow Lane. Jon Stead grabbed the winner from the penalty spot just after the half-hour mark following Olly Lancashire's foul in the box. A tough proposition for Notts, the Robins were relegated from League One last season and have adapted to life in the fourth tier well enough so far. However, their great away run came to an end in Nottingham, while County's impressive run goes from strength to strength.

  3. Notts County have edged up to second in League Two following another workmanlike performance in Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Swindon Town. Jon Stead's penalty just after the half-hour mark, after he was bundled over in the box by Olly Lancashire, was enough to secure the points for Kevin Nolan's charges. The first sighting of goal came in the eighth minute when Richard Duffy’s botched header fell to Keshi Anderson in the area, but the Swindon man volleyed straight at Adam Collin. Matty Taylor then picked out Luke Norris with a cross to the back post, but his header on the stretch flew wide. Notts were next to threaten as Lewis Alessandra went close with a rasping drive which whistled past the post from 20 yards. Carl Dickinson then curled a free kick from 25 yards against the outside of the post and out of play as the heavens opened up and torrential rain began falling onto the Meadow Lane pitch. Notts went on to take the lead through Stead's penalty and held onto their slender advantage going into the break. Both sides traded blows throughout the second half but the Magpies were able to hold on for another priceless win which stretches their unbeaten run to seven games in all competitions.

  4. Notts County welcome Swindon Town to Meadow Lane this evening. As openings to a season go, the Magpies have had arguably one of the toughest ones out there this year in League Two, with all four sides relegated from League One last season up against us in our first seven fixtures. Kevin Nolan's charges have however navigated a very tricky start reasonably well, save for the opener against Coventry City of course, and tonight, another team expected to bounce right back up to comes to Nottingham for what the gaffer has described as "another tough ask". History Notts have met Swindon on 63 occasions, the first time being 103 years ago in the FA Cup. On that day in January 1911, the Robins beat the Magpies 2-0 at the County Ground. Of the 63 clashes, 24 have been won by Notts, 27 by Swindon, and 12 have been drawn. The last meeting between the two was on 7 March 2015, away at the County Ground, and the Robins ran out 3-0 winners. Current league position Notts - third (13 points) Swindon - ninth (10 points) Run-down of the opposition's five games Saturday 12th August – Swindon Town 1 Exeter City 1 Saturday 19th August – Morecambe 0 Swindon Town 1 Saturday 26th August – Swindon Town 0 Crawley Town 3 Saturday 2nd September – Swindon Town 1 Barnet 4 Saturday 9th September – Luton Town 0 Swindon Town 3 Opposition player fact sheet Highest Goal Scorers; Luke Norris 4, Paul Mullin 4, Chris Hussey and Olly Lancashire 1. Persistent Foulers; Donal McDermott 1 red card, Paul Mullin 3 yellow cards, James Dunne 2 yellow cards and Ellis Landolo 2 yellow cards. The Key Players Luke Norris is a very capable goal scorer who can instantly change the outcome of a game with his style of play, he likes to attack and sit off the defenders – this allows him to find the right amount of space in order to have a shot. James Dunne is Swindon’s enforcer within the midfield, he can link play and generally cause a nuisance to the opposition defence. Ollie Lancashire is also someone Notts should do their homework on, as the defender likes to get forward as much as possible and knows how to strike the ball. Style of play, strengths, and weaknesses Swindon like to use the flanks in order to get balls into the opposition's area, at times they try to cut it back at the last minute – this creates space for their offensive players. They tend to be very direct, whilst asserting pressure as they build with momentum but are inclined to sit back and allow the opposition to attack themselves. From an attacking stance they like to get the ball in and behind the last defenders, and can mix between passing on the ground and using the wider space available to them. However, from a defensive point of view they don’t like teams being direct or patient within their own building and can be prone to giving fouls away. Free kicks and set pieces will be vital for Notts, as will ensuring that the corner pieces are not wasted. The Magpies will have to focus on getting the ball into the Swindon area so that it unnerves their defence and allows for swifter chances to come forward.

  5. Notts County have met Swindon Town on 63 occasions, the first time being 103 years ago in the FA Cup. On that day in January 1911, the Robins beat the Magpies 2-0 at the County Ground. Of the 63 clashes, 24 have been won by Notts, 27 by Swindon, and 12 have been drawn. The last meeting between the two was on 7 March 2015, away at the County Ground, and the Robins ran out 3-0 winners. The club was founded in 1879 by Reverend William Baker Pitt. Whilst curate of Christ Church, the high church of Swindon, Pitt formed Swindon Association Football Club to provide recreation for young men in his parish. Swindon won the Southern League championship in 1910-11, earning themselves a Charity Shield clash with Football League champions Manchester United. This, the highest-scoring Charity Shield game to date, was played on 25 September 1911 at Stamford Bridge with Manchester United winning 8–4! Some of the proceeds of this game were later donated to the survivors of the Titanic. During World War II, The War Department – the government body responsible for the supply of equipment to the armed forces in the UK – took over the County Ground in 1940. For a while, prisoners of war were housed in huts placed on the pitch. For this, the club received compensation of £4,570 at war’s end. Swindon Town were the first League club to use floodlights, having had them installed in 1951. The County Ground is also the only football stadium in the world with a Rolex watch acting as its timekeeper –the clock on the Stratton Bank stand featuring its name was erected to celebrate promotion in 1963. Swindon have spent one season in the top flight, in 1992-93, during which Glenn Hoddle managed them. Sadly, they didn't do too well, being relegated at the end of the season after conceding 100 goals. The most notable silverware in the Robins’ possession is undoubtedly the League Cup, won in 1969 after beating Arsenal in the final at Wembley. Royle Family and Two Pints Of Lager actor Ralf Little was rumoured to be on trial at Swindon back in 2002, though the funnyman later claimed that he was just training with the squad. Pint-sized jazz singer Jamie Cullum is also a fan of the Robins. Team news Shola Ameobi will miss Notts County's home game against Swindon after picking up a hamstring injury that forced him off after 41 minutes of Saturday's 2-0 victory over Morecambe. Jonathan Forte came on for Ameobi at the weekend and he is expected to make his first league start of the season after scoring his side's second goal against the Shrimps. Notts boss Kevin Nolan has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from as he looks to extend his side's unbeaten run to eight matches. Swindon manager David Flitcroft could name an unchanged starting line-up following a 3-0 away win over Luton Town on Saturday. John Goddard and Kyle Knoyle remain absent through injury, although the latter is expected to resume full training this week. Donal McDermott will serve the second game of the three-match ban he received for his red card against Barnet earlier this month.

  6. Notts County have climbed to third in League Two and stretched their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions following a 2-0 win over Morecambe. Dan Jones opened the scoring for the Magpies at Meadow Lane with a 27th-minute free kick which was curled expertly round the Shrimps wall and beyond goalkeeper Barry Roche. Morecambe launched a fightback but their efforts were to no avail as Notts struck late on through substitute Jonathan Forte as he broke through and rifled home via the inside of the post. In this piece, Chris has taken an in-depth look at how both sides played, whether the result was fair, and how to move forward. Was the result fair? The result was about right for me, Morecambe didn’t look much of a threat on goal and struggled to get a grip on the game. Notts passed nicely at times, created chances and always looked to get forward. How did Notts play? It wasn’t a "wow" performance, yet the team spirit again shined and there were several occasions where pieces of play really did entertain us fans. I think we needed to be slightly more direct, along with taking our time when shooting but overall it was a very decent performance. How did Morecambe play? Morecambe really struggled, defensively they were quite poor and I felt if Notts created better chances they would have been finished off early. Their midfield wasn’t able to get hold of the game, nor could they change the tempo. This in turn isolated their attack, so it was a typical disconnected performance by a team clearly struggling to get their season going. Did our tactics work out? Honestly, I felt that we needed to change things before the game. Make a simple adjustment to the midfield by allowing Rob Milsom to start and perhaps the tweak we all have been wanting up front. The tactics weren’t bad, I just felt it was somewhat flat but it allowed us to control the game and so to a degree it worked. If Morecambe had been more of a threat or the physical team we know they can be – this could have been different, but the balance was about right for us. How did the referee perform? I can still hear his whistle, his repeated blowing and lack of control really frustrated me at times. However, I don’t think it had any sort of impact on the game and again I find myself thinking in hindsight that he was just another poor League Two referee. Who do we play next? Swindon Town – a team still getting to grips with life back in League Two, although they’re heavily tipped for a return to League One and have several good players. This will be a tougher game on Tuesday for Notts! How should we play them? Notts needs to be able to cope with any pace they have, the right-hand side of the defence for me is a concern if Matt Tootle doesn’t start. I think Swindon will know that they have a chance to influence the game by using the flanks so defensively we have to stand tall – whilst ensuring we force them back into the centre of the park. I would like to see Notts try to hold the ball up, perhaps push Jorge Grant a little forward and let him sit behind whoever starts up front. Kevin Nolan could perhaps justify reverting to one striker, however I think it might limit our chances – yet it would offer Notts more bulk in the centre of the park where it matters. This would allow us to pass the ball around, whilst offering protection to the defence. We can’t just sit back and defend however, we must pass the ball and look to maximise the set pieces that we get.

  7. Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has given his views on his side's encounter with a "big, experienced" Notts County side on Saturday, which ended in a 2-0 defeat for the Shrimps. Meadow Lane was the venue as the Black and White army saw the Magpies face an opponent that had build up a reputation as a bogey team over Notts in recent years. Dan Jones opened the scoring for the hosts with a 27th-minute free kick which was curled expertly round the Morecambe wall and beyond goalkeeper Barry Roche. The visitors launched a fightback following the restart but their efforts were to no avail as Notts struck late on through substitute Jonathan Forte as he broke through and rifled home via the inside of the post. Bentley said to the Lancashire Evening Post: “This was always going to be a difficult game against a big, experienced side and our football was good at times but we just fell a bit short in the final third. “We did get in a couple of times in the first half but we didn’t take our chances and that proved vital in the end. “We should have scored from a well-worked corner and then the first time they had a shot on goal their scored from a great free kick and we were up against it again."

  8. Notts County have climbed to third in League Two and stretched their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions following a 2-0 win over Morecambe. Dan Jones opened the scoring for the Magpies at Meadow Lane with a 27th-minute free kick which was curled expertly round the Shrimps wall and beyond goalkeeper Barry Roche. Morecambe launched a fightback but their efforts were to no avail as Notts struck late on through substitute Jonathan Forte as he broke through and rifled home via the inside of the post. Here is some of the reaction from some of the Notts players, the manager, and the Black and White Army. Kevin Nolan "It was a lot better than last week's performance. I thought we dominated throughout. "The lads were magnificent. They followed up a hard-fought win last week with another top performance and clean sheet today. "As a defensive unit I feel we had to get better from last year. We were leaking goals from here, there and everywhere and now we look like a really good, solid unit. "It was a great all-round performance and I'm absolutely delighed. We're on a decent run now but the games come thick and fast. "We've got another tough one on Tuesday night so we're looking forward to that." Ryan Yates Jorge Grant Adam Collin The fans (from PON's Morecambe match discussion) Chris "I thought Notts played quite well, in spells we really dominated the play but without a few things going our way - this really would have been a draw. "Morecambe was very poor, I thought they would be more aggressive and physical but they only changed once the free-kick had gone in. To be fair, they allowed us to have more time on the ball by using three men to mark players like Jorge Grant. I agree that our football wasn't pretty at times, yet it's very good progress on the back of a very poor season last year and the promising signs are that it's improving. "The injury to Shola Ameobi was a massive blow, though Jonathan Forte has proven that he can come in and score. "The team spirit shined during the period whereby Morecambe threatened, though I must say Duffy looks the weak link in defence and his rushing of the play was very frustrating." Liampie "It was sad to see people leaving around the 75th minute mark moaning about how poor the game was, i thought notts played quite well but lacked fire power and we really did miss shola in the squad half. Second goal people became more cheerful. Good performance and win for me."

  10. Notts County have stretched their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions following Saturday's 2-0 win over Morecambe at Meadow Lane. The Magpies bossed the first half and deservedly took the lead as defender Dan Jones curled in a superb free kick on 27 minutes. Although the Shrimps shuffled things round at the break and were more dangerous in the second half, they were unable to make headway in terms of grabbing an equaliser. Indeed, Notts went on to seal the victory through Jonathan Forte, who raced clean through on goal and slotted beyond Barry Roche. Pride of Nottingham was at the Lane to watch the fantastic win, which elevated the Magpies to third in the League Two table, and spoke to a number of fans prior to the game.

  14. Goals from Dan Jones and substitute Jonathan Forte stretched Notts County's unbeaten run to six games as they beat Morecambe 2-0 at Meadow Lane on Saturday afternoon. The Magpies defender opened the scoring midway through the first half with a well taken free kick which left Shrimps goalkeeper Barry Roche grasping at thin air. Morecambe mounted a fightback in the second half but striker Forte eventually wrapped up the win as he steered in via the inside of the post late on. It was no more than the hosts deserved for a solid performance which maintained their excellent start to the season under boss Kevin Nolan.

  15. Alam Hardy has revealed how one prospective Notts County target - a free agent - asked the club for more than £4,000 a week to join. The Magpies strengthened their ranks throughout the course of the summer and, although there was some mild interest in a number of players late on in the transfer window, nothing came of it. Hardy wrote in the Nottingham Post: "The window closed last week and I was originally of the opinion that deadline day added great excitement. "But, on reflection, it seems farcical that some clubs were left racing around to beat the deadline given they’ve had all summer to plan. "Clubs have months to put a strategy in place, identifying what their team will look like in terms of shape and so on. "You develop a list of players who fit the vision, so it beggars belief that some clubs need right up until the very last few minutes or seconds of the window to do a deal. "Let’s be frank, these clubs are multi-million pound businesses, not corner shops. "Don’t get me wrong, there are genuine cases of managers needing players at short notice, but I think my biggest problem is the hyperbole surrounding the final day of the window, which means fans tend to judge your entire transfer business on the outcome of that 24 hours. "You can sign player after player, but the manager Kevin Nolan and I view this far more strategically than it appears other clubs do. "We pursued some exceptional targets but unfortunately couldn’t get them over the line. It didn't mean, however, that we then started scrambling around for others. "Those players would have been great additions, no doubt, but it was not the be all and end all. "You also have to bear in mind if you bring five players in on the final day, what kind of message does that send to the rest of the squad? "Of course, we still have the opportunity to sign players who are out of contract and there are plenty of those available. "I have to say some of their demands have been off the scale in terms of wages. But it’s like that in any industry at the moment. "In construction, raw materials have gone up by a single digit in terms of percentage, but salaries have risen by 20 to 30 percent. It’s not just football. It’s right across the board. "That’s being reflected in players’ demands. A player was put to us recently and I enquired what he would be after in terms of wages. "He wanted more than £4,000 a week. It’s crazy. Why have they approached a League Two club asking for those kinds of sums? "A lot of these players still feel they can play in the Championship or League One, but if you haven’t played football for a few months, clubs at that level simply won’t take the risk."

  16. Kevin Nolan has described his Notts County players as "magnificent" as they sealed a 2-0 win over Morecambe in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. Dan Jones opened the scoring midway through the first half with a well-taken free kick, while substitute Jonathan Forte made sure of all three points with a late strike. The result sees the Magpies climb to third in the table and stretches their unbeaten run in all competitions to six games, but Nolan is eager for his side to regroup ahead of Tuesday night's clash with Swindon Town. "It was a lot better than last week's performance [at Port Vale]," Nolan told the official website. "I thought we dominated throughout. "The lads were magnificent. They followed up a hard-fought win last week with another top performance and clean sheet today. "As a defensive unit I feel we had to get better from last year. We were leaking goals from here, there and everywhere and now we look like a really good, solid unit. "It was a great all-round performance and I'm absolutely delighted. We're on a decent run now but the games come thick and fast. "We've got another tough one on Tuesday night so we're looking forward to that."

  17. Notts County have stretched their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions following Saturday's 2-0 victory against Morecambe at Meadow Lane. The Magpies were quick out of the starting blocks in the League Two encounter, with Shola Ameobi heading wide from a Dan Jones corner early on. Kevin Nolan's charges continued to impress with Jon Stead, Terry Hawkridge and Ameobi all weighing in with chances, while at the other end, the unmarked Steven Old headed straight at Adam Collin from a corner kick. However, County's efforts were rewarded in the 27th minute when Ameobi won a free kick not far from the Morecambe box, and Jones curled his set piece over the wall and into the top corner of the net. The visitors made changes at the break and soon enjoyed a dominant spell but struggled to carve out any decent opportunities. Shaun Brisley nearly doubled County's lead when his header from a corner landed on the roof of the net on 66 minutes. Collin remained untested in the home goal with the Shrimps’ only effort being a Garry Thompson shot on the turn that skewed well wide of the Magpies’ goal. Eventually Notts found a killer second and it came courtesy of Jonathan Forte, who got behind Aaron McGowan for a free run on goal which ended with a perfectly placed shot to beat Barry Roche from a tight angle. Jorge Grant then had a chance to make it three with a free kick from the edge of the area but could only curl the ball over the woodwork. Morecambe pressed for a late consolation goal and Collin was forced to save well from Thompson and Elliot Osborne in injury time but Nolan's boys managed to hold on for all three points.

  18. Kevin Nolan wants Notts County to continue their good form at home and continue building Meadow Lane up as a fortress as they prepare to host Morecambe this weekend. The Magpies are flying high in League Two after putting their opening-day 3-0 defeat at Coventry City behind them, and currently boast a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions. Morecambe, however, have proven a bogey team for Notts in recent games, which include two 4-1 wins over the Magpies. Nolan told the official Notts website: "They've had two good away draws in the last couple of games and they put us to the sword twice last year, playing really well on both occasions. "You can never take anyone for granted. This is going to be a tough game. We've got a returning Adam Campbell who's going to want to prove himself and Kevin Ellison is a nuisance all game. "We're not in for an easy ride. We're going to have to be patient." Meanwhile, the Nottingham Post quotes him as saying: “Teams will come here and respect what we have done. "That’s a credit to our lads and what they have achieved. What they have to do is ensure they don’t let teams off. “They have to put them on the back foot, and keep dominating. We want to keep Meadow Lane a fortress and we want teams to fear coming here. “And when they’ve left we want them to say ‘we are glad we aren’t going there again’. That’s what we want to create, and bit by bit we are getting 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.

  19. Notts County and Morecambe have met just 10 times in their history, with the first ever clash taking place 10 years ago, in September 2007. On that day, it ended as a 1-1 draw, Michael Twiss putting the visitors ahead at Meadow Lane in the first half, before the late Richard Butcher equalised in the 87th minute. The Shrimpers are considerably ahead in the head-to-head, with Notts having lost to them five times, beaten them twice, and drawn thrice. This fixture has yielded a scoreline of 4-1 three times already - once in our favour and twice in Morecambe's (including our last meeting with them, last season at Meadow Lane). Worth a punt for a 4-1 home win tomorrow? The fixture on 19 September 2009 was former Arsenal and England legend Sol Campbell's only game in a Magpies shirt, while the rematch later in the season, on 17 April 2010, is when Notts mathematically secured promotion to League One. Football in the town dates back to the turn of the 20th century; however, it was not until 7 May 1920 that Morecambe FC was formed. The club then took its place in the Lancashire Combination League for the 1920–21 season. The fourteen years from 1960 could be said to be Morecambe's golden era. This included an FA Cup third round appearance in 1961–62, a 1–0 defeat to Weymouth; a Lancashire Senior Cup Final victory in 1968, a 2–1 win over Burnley; and an FA Trophy success at Wembley in 1974, a 2–1 win over Dartford in the final. Morecambe, a non-league side for most of their history, were promoted to the Football League for the first time in 2007 after winning the Conference Playoff Final, beating Exeter City 2–1 at Wembley in front of over 40,000 fans. Morecambe was a thriving seaside resort in the mid-20th century. While the resort of Blackpool attracted holiday-makers predominantly from the Lancashire mill towns, Morecambe had more visitors from Yorkshire, due to its railway connection, and Scotland. Between 1956 and 1989 Morecambe was the home of the Miss Great Britain beauty contest. Team news Matt Tootle is back from suspension after serving a one-match ban as Notts County look to stretch their unbeaten run to five in League Two (six in all competitions). Rob Milsom, Jonathan Forte and Lewis Alessandra, who scored the winning goal at Port Vale, will be pushing for starting places. Shaun Brisley was taken off at Vale Park folowing a blow to the head but Magpies boss Kevin Nolan is hoping he will be able to slot back into the starting XI alongside centre-back partner Richard Duffy. Morecambe striker - and former Notts loanee - Vadaine Oliver begins a three-match ban for his straight red card against Accrington Stanley. Kevin Ellison is likely to take the summer signing's place after he came off the bench to open his account for the season in the 2-1 defeat. Season-long loan signing Callum Lang could make his first start for the Shrimps after a substitute appearance. Alex Kenyon, currently sidelined through injury, looks unlikely to be back for the game.

  20. Notts County goalkeeper Adam Collin has hailed the performances of Shaun Brisley and Richard Duffy in front of him in defence. The Magpies have a chance to make it six games unbeaten when they host Morecambe in League Two tomorrow. Collin has kept two clean sheets in the five league games played by Notts so far, but he paid credit to his centre-backs as Brisley fights to be in contention following his injury in the Port Vale win last week. The stopper told the official Notts website: "It's massive for me to have a consistent back four in front of me. "Shaun Brisley and Richard Duffy have been outstanding and are forming a good partnership, which makes it so much easier for me to play behind. I know what I'm getting from them nine times out of 10. "It's so important for the back four and me to have confidence in one another. It's been settled so far but we know people are capable of stepping up as and when they're needed."

  21. Kevin Nolan has revealed that Shaun Brisley looks more likely than not to play a part in Notts County's League Two home encounter with Morecambe this weekend. The defender was taken off late in the Magpies' 1-0 win over Port Vale last week after receiving a blow to the head. However, when asked about injury worries ahead of the Meadow Lane fixture this Saturday, Nolan provided a positive update about Brisley. “We have no injury worries,” he told the Nottingham Post. “Obviously we had Bris (Brisley) who came off in the last 10 minutes or so against Port Vale. “But he’s come through training and if there are no problems over the next 24-48 hours, we should be free to play whoever we want. “I'm delighted there was no severe damage. We are not out of the woods yet with him and I said after the game last week that we will look after his welfare. “We'll make sure he's alright. His health and livelihood comes well before anything else. “Fingers crossed he will be okay. He's come through a couple of training sessions, but you don’t know what could happen. There could be late concussion and/or he could get blackouts. “But we’ll leave no stone unturned to make sure he’s okay.” 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.

  22. Can't believe it's already been 6 years since Juventus opened their new stadium (aptly called the Juventus Stadium) and invited none other than lil long-removed relatives Notts County to be part of the experience in an exhibition match! Fancy reliving the memories and watching both sets of Bianconeri (well, technically speaking we're the Blucelesti in this game) strut their stuff in Turin? Well, here is the link to ESPN's highlights!
