  1. Alan Hardy has claimed that Notts County's EFL Cup game at Middlesbrough will be a "great test" for both teams. The Magpies will make the journey to the Riverside Stadium in the week commencing August 13 and will take on a side which reached the Championship playoffs last term. Notts played Boro away in the League Cup in September 2006 and famously won 1-0 in front of 11,148 fans. "It will be a great test for both teams," Hardy told the Nottingham Post. "Boro will naturally be favourites with the bookmakers, but we proved last year during our FA Cup run that we will give anybody a game. "We took Swansea to a replay and they were in the Premier League, and we also beat Championship Brentford. "I am really looking forward to it. It's an excellent stadium, the pitch should be in supreme condition and who knows what can happen on the night. "We will go there, give it our best shot and see where that takes us." Hardy also revealed that he is looking to add a fourth striker to the senior ranks, likely a loanee or an academy player. "We are actively looking for a fourth striker but that fourth striker will either be a loan player or a rising star from the academy such as Remaye Campbell," he told the Post web chat.

  2. Notts County have been handed an away trip to Middlesbrough in the first round of the 2018-19 EFL Cup / Carabao Cup. The Magpies will make the journey to the Riverside Stadium in the week commencing August 13 and will take on a side which reached the Championship playoffs last term. Notts played Boro away League Cup in September 2006 and famously won 1-0 in front of 11,148 fans. The 2018/19 draw took place at the Independence Palace, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and 70 clubs went into the hat divided into northern and southern sections. Unlike in previous seasons, however, there is no seeding for higher ranked clubs. Sky are expected to broadcast two first round ties live with the chosen fixtures to be revealed in the near future. The EFL clubs last week voted to abolish extra-time in ties that are level after 90 minutes so drawn games will go straight to a penalty shootout. It was also decided that the ‘ABBA’ penalty system will be scrapped - any penalty shootouts will be the traditional alternate five kicks per team process. VAR can be used in any Premier League stadium hosting a fixture.

  3. Notts County have confirmed they will be hosting a breakfast event at Meadow Lane to find out the release of the 2018-19 League Two fixtures. The event (and the draw) will take place on Thursday 21 June, with doors opening at 8am, and costs £10. Notts chairman Alan Hardy, manager Kevin Nolan and director Darren Fletcher will be present as the club finds out their fate in terms of who they'll play in the league and when. To book, email kirsty.edwards@nottscountyfc.co.uk or call 0115 955 7222. In addition, the EFL has confirmed that the draw for the first round of the EFL Cup - or Carabao Cup in corporate terms - takes place on Friday 15 June at 10:45am BST, with Notts being allocated ball number 23. Seventy EFL clubs will feature in the new-look draw, which will see teams drawn into Northern and Southern sections, but with no seeding for higher ranked sides as in previous seasons. Matches are scheduled to take place in the week commencing 13 August.

  4. League Two matchday 1: Coventry City 3-0 Notts County Notts County's season began on the worst possible note, falling to a heavy 3-0 defeat at Coventry City in the opening game of the campaign. The Magpies had their moments but weaknesses at the back saw the Sky Blues take full advantage, with young prodigy Jodi Jones bagging himself a hat-trick. EFL Cup first round: Scunthorpe United 3-3 Notts County (6-5 on penalties) A much-changed Notts County side put in a much improved performance against League One side Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park. Jorge Grant gave the visitors the lead, but Paddy Madden and Duane Holmes edged the Iron ahead - only for Shaun Brisley to make it 2-2 at the death. Onto extra time and Madden struck once again, but Ryan Yates forced the tie to penalties, where the hosts finally prevailed. League Two matchday 2: Notts County 2-0 Chesterfield An early-season local derby to set the pulse racing, Chesterfield did not exactly come to Notts County with the intention of playing them off the park - it turned out to be more a case of kicking and barging, with Gozie Ugwu very lucky not to be sent off, though Scott Wiseman had a worse fate, getting his marching orders close to half time. Kevin Nolan's side emerged triumphant through the prodigal loanee Jorge Grant's second and third goals of the season in all competitions. EFL Trophy Northern Group G: Notts County 2-1 Everton Under-21s A much-maligned competition in a game where Notts County were lined up against one of the teams whose admission to the tournament has been the cause of such discord, the Magpies nonetheless gave the fans who went to the game a good performance and a win. Jonathan Forte opened his account for the season before Haydn Hollis claimed a poacher's goal, and Anton Donkor's impressive strike off the post proved to be just a consolation. League Two matchday 3: Wycombe Wanderers 2-4 Notts County Another difficult proposition in the league, Notts gave a bipolar performance in which they raced into a two-goal lead, relinquished it, and struck two late goals for a flattering scoreline. Richard Duffy opened the scoring before a defensive calamity led to an own goal for the visitors, only for Nick Freeman and Joe Jacobson to draw Wycombe level. However, Jonathan Forte claimed the plaudits with a third Notts Magpies goal, before setting up Lewis Alessandra for the killer fourth. League Two matchday 4: Notts County 2-2 Accrington Stanley For the second successive game, Notts took a two-goal lead, only to capitulate and relinquish it, but there was to be no last-ditch blaze of glory as there was at Wycombe Wanderers on Friday night against Accrington Stanley, who cancelled out Jon Stead's successful spot kick and Jorge Grant's strike via Mark Hughes's goal midway through the second half and loanee Mallik Wilks's injury-time strike. Aaron Chapman, the Stanley goalkeeper, kept his team in it with a succession of fine saves.

  5. In another move that will pretty much end up alienating English football fans further, the draw for the third round of the EFL/League/Carabao Cup will take place on Thursday - at 4:15am BST. This is because the draw will be made in Beijing. Normally I'd leave it open to discussion and shirk from adding my opinion, but come on, this is ridiculous. It's a competition being played in England (or Wales, if Cardiff/Swansea/Newport play at home), where 99.99% of the fans going to watch the games will be based in the UK. What the hell are they thinking??
  6. Kevin Nolan claims Notts County are yet to hit their full potential this season, but is pleased that the last two games have been won despite this. Following a poor 3-0 loss to Coventry City in the League Two season opener, the Magpies put in a solid performance in the League Cup against Scunthorpe United, only losing on penalties. They then followed it up with victories over Chesterfield and Everton Under-21s, and Nolan believes there is more to come from his charges. “I feel in the last two games we have been worthy winners despite not reaching the heights I know we can,” he told the Nottingham Post. “It’s still early days and we have to be patient with these lads. They all believe they can get better and they know can get better. “That’s a great thing to have when you are winning games and you’re not really hitting your maximum with the ball. “Without the ball we are getting better and that’s being proven and that’s why teams are finding it difficult to create chances against us."

  7. So the first game of the first cup competition of the season (Carabao [League] Cup) has been sorted for Notts County. Scunthorpe United away (again?), game to take place on Tuesday 8 August at Glanford Park, 7:45pm kickoff. Ticket prices are £12 for adults, £8 for over-65s and under-21s, and £2 for under-18s, and will go on sale in the coming weeks - the club will reveal more in due course. Got to be honest, as fixtures go, Scunny away is hardly the ideal tie, but at least it's not too far... plus the prices seem fairly reasonable and the tie is certainly winnable. Anybody making plans to head up to sunny Scunny for the tie? Let PON know.
