  1. Notts County's season has finally come to an end, two weeks after the regular campaign was wrapped up. The fact we managed to extend the season by making the playoffs is obviously a sign that we have been heading in the right direction, and on the positive side it is nice to have been anxious about things in the top half of the table instead of the bottom like we had been for the previous four seasons. And of course, just the fact that we lost to Coventry City over two legs is no disgrace. After all, they are a big team with good players and a big fanbase, so had it just been a case
  2. Michael O’Connor has called for more ex-players to go into refereeing after Notts County were knocked out of the League Two playoffs against Coventry City. In the first leg at the Ricoh Arena, Matt Tootle was wrongly penalised for a foul on Tom Bayliss which saw Marc McNulty score a late penalty to earn Coventry a 1-1 draw. And in the return leg at Meadow Lane, Jonathan Forte saw an equaliser wrongly chalked off for offside when the score was 2-1, while Maxime Biamou's third Sky Blues goal was offside. “Forte was two yards onside, and there were two offsides for their third goal
  3. Notts County's Wembley dream came to an end on Friday night as a referee-assisted Coventry City side ran out 4-1 winners in their League Two playoff semi-final second leg at Meadow Lane. Level at 1-1 on aggregate following the first leg, the hosts admittedly put in a dire first-half performance as Maxime Biamou and Marc McNulty struck in the first half to put the Sky Blues in control. Jorge Grant pulled one back for the Magpies before the break while Jonathan Forte had a perfectly good goal disallowed for offside. Biamou then scored again in a move which saw two separate offside

Biamou then scored again in a move which saw two separate offsides in the build-up and To
  5. Coventry City captain Michael Doyle has claimed that Notts County's attitude prior to the League Two playoff semi-final second leg effectively did the team talk for his side. The Sky Blues coasted to a 4-1 win on Friday night, putting them into the playoff final 5-2 on aggregate at the expense of the Magpies. Doyle felt County gave Coventry an extra incentive because of things like the specially printed Wembley T-shirts and comments made by Alan Hardy. “I just felt that they thought that before the game they were through,” he told Coventry Telegraph, referring to the chairman’s
  6. Notts County's 2017-18 season ended on a sour note as Coventry City put in an assured display, helped in no small part by several dubious refereeing decisions, to run out 4-1 winners at Meadow Lane. The first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final ended 1-1 as a contentious penalty saw the Sky Blues edge level on the night and in the tie, but the hope was that home advantage in the return leg could prove beneficial for the Magpies. However, the first half at the San Sirrel was little short of atrocious for Notts, who fell behind after just six minutes when a corner was not proper

  8. Apologies for not putting this up last night, a combination of heartbreak and a focus on trying to muster a match report meant I completely forgot about the MOTM (not that I'm expecting much of a response given we were pretty crap for most of the game). Nonetheless, we gotta ask - who in your eyes was the least worst player for the Magpies?
  9. Alan Hardy has urged the Notts County fanbase to play their part in what he hopes to be a night "that will go down in Meadow Lane folklore". Tonight, the second leg of County's League Two playoff semi-final against Coventry City takes place, with the tie evenly - and unfairly - poised at 1-1. Writing in the Nottingham Post, Hardy spoke at length about the nerves and anticipation involved prior to kickoff, the camaraderie in the Notts camp, and the role which the Black & White Army must play. "So the day has finally arrived when our hopes, dreams and aspirations can be realis
  10. So here it is folks, the biggest game of Notts County's season so far and hopefully the penultimate game of our campaign is upon us. Coventry City come to Meadow Lane for the second leg of our League Two playoff semi-final on level terms, though it shouldn't be the case. The Sky Blues won a completely undeserved penalty late on in the first leg at the Ricoh Arena which they converted for a 1-1 scoreline. But as much as it's totally justified, there's no point crying over spilled milk - this is a cup final for us and we best buckle up and get on with it. In this article, Pri
  11. Notts County were robbed of victory at Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena as Kevin Nolan’s men had to settle for a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final. The Magpies led through Jonathan Forte’s deft second-half finish and looked on course to record a morale-boosting victory to put them in pole position for Wembley. However, "referee" Gavin Ward incorrectly adjudged Matt Tootle to have felled Tom Bayliss in the area and awarded a penalty to the hosts. Marc McNulty stroked home the spotkick, sending Adam Collin the wrong way, to send the Sky Blues into next Fr

  14. Coventry City manager Mark Robins has claimed that Tom Davies is not a cheat despite appearing to stamp on Richard Duffy and kicking out at Jonathan Forte during Saturday's League Two playoff semi-final first leg. Referee Gavin Ward, who awarded a completely ludicrous penalty to the Sky Blues late on at the Ricoh Arena for a 1-1 draw, did not see either of the incidents, meaning he cannot put it in his report. However, the FA can take retrospective action should they deem it necessary, meaning Davies could be at risk of a ban for the return leg at Meadow Lane on Friday night. “I
  15. Richard Duffy has praised teammate Jonathan Forte for his "fantastic" form in recent games and was delighted with his goal for Notts County against Coventry City. The 31-year-old, who has found himself frozen out of the first team on numerous occasions this season, opened the scoring at the Ricoh Arena with a deft flick from Dan Jones's cross. Notts were well on their way to victory until Coventry won a ludicrous penalty and drew level late on for a final score on the night of 1-1, but Duffy was eager to pay tribute to his teammate. “Since he’s come back into the team he’s been
  16. Jorge Grant is hoping to make use of Meadow Lane as a fortress on Friday night in a bid to overcome Coventry City in the second leg of their League Two playoff semi-final. The tie is evenly poised at 1-1, though it should be a goal up to the Magpies were it not for the referee's outrageous decision to award the Sky Blues a late penalty in the first leg. However, Grant remains positive, both of County's performance at the Ricoh Arena and the prospect of being still in the tie ahead of welcoming Coventry to the San Sirrel. “I am happy we are still in the tie,” the attacking midfie
  17. Kevin Nolan has provided an update on Jonathan Forte, who limped off in Notts County's playoff draw at Coventry City. The striker opened the scoring at the Ricoh Arena, only for the Magpies to be pegged back through a ludicrous penalty. “Forte is okay, he was just tired and had given a lot on a heavy pitch as all the players did,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “They were weary. They had a day off on Sunday and I told them to relax and recuperate. “Then it was back to work on Monday and hopefully getting the game plan ready to beat Coventry. “We’ve got 90 minutes or p
  18. Play-off semi-final first leg:The Sky Blues (A) Team: Coventry City Date: 12/05/18 Where: Ricoh Arena What line-up should Kevin Nolan opt for? What will be the key areas for the Magpies to get a victory? What do you think the final score will be? Have your say below, join in with the Pride of Nottingham match discussion.
  19. Notts County found themselves the victims of a robbery in Coventry this evening as referee Gavin Ward awarded the most ridiculous penalty decision you will see in a long time to help Coventry City secure a late 1-1 draw in Saturday night's League Two semi-final playoff first leg at the Ricoh Arena. The Sky Blues began brightly on a rain-sodden pitch in the West Midlands, with Marc McNulty being played clean through by Jordan Shipley and firing against the foot of the Notts post before Max Biamou hit the rebound which was blocked by a back-tracking defender. Notts, however, worked up
  20. Coventry City full-back Chris Stokes has described Notts County as "basically" a "long ball" team and is hoping to see his side put another three goals past them. The two sides will lock horns for the first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final at the Ricoh Arena this Saturday before the return leg takes place at Meadow Lane six days later. Notts fell to a 3-0 defeat in the opening game of the season but won 2-1 when the Sky Blues came to Nottingham. “When they came here last time we put three past them so we will be looking to do that again,” Stokes told the Coventry Teleg
  21. Head to head Notts County and Coventry have met just 40 times over the years. The first encounter took place on the 6th November 1920, the match at Meadow Lane ending in a 1-1 draw. The last one was just over a month ago, on April 7, and in the League Two encounter at Meadow Lane, the Magpies ran out 2-1 winners. However, the reverse fixture, on the opening day of the 2017-18 season, saw Coventry beat Notts 3-0 at the Ricoh Arena. There have plenty of high-scoring games between the two, with several 5-1s, 3-0s and 4-2s over the years. Notts County have the upper h
  22. Kevin Nolan has urged Notts County's players to keep their feet on the ground and concentrate on the task ahead in the playoffs, stressing that they "can't really dream about anything". 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, and should they be successful, Wembley beckons. “I have great belief in these lads and what we’ve done all season long,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post
  23. Notts County's regular League Two season ended with a goalless draw against Luton Town at Meadow Lane on Saturday. The Magpies, who had sealed a playoff place but could not go any higher than third following the loss to Grimsby Town, played out a bright game against their promoted opponents. Neither side could break the deadlock, however, in a game that had an end-of-season team and with neither side having anything much to play for, except for where Notts would finish in the playoff positions. As it was, Kevin Nolan's charges finished fifth in the table and would find themselve
  24. 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 th
