  1. Richard Duffy has praised Basford United for giving Notts County a tough game in Saturday's pre-season friendly at Greenwich Avenue, but admits that the game was only really about getting match fit. An own goal following a Dan Jones free kick and a strike from Alex Howes in the first half helped Kevin Nolan's side claim a 2-0 win over the Evo-Stik Division One South outfit. The Magpies boss fielded a different team in each half, which saw trialists goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimmons, defender Pierce Bird and striker Callum Saunders all given a run-out. "In the first half they had a couple of chances and I didn't see much of the second half, but it was just another 45 minutes under our belts to add to our fitness," Duffy told the Nottingham Post. "It was a tougher game than the first friendly we had (against Rolls Royce). They are a decent outfit and they do alright in the league they play in. "We always knew it was going to be tough. But you expect us to come out on top, and comfortably. "We probably deserved a couple more goals but they could have scored too. So fair play to them. They gave us a good game but it was more to do with fitness than anything else."

  2. Kevin Nolan has given his assessment of Notts County's performance in their pre-season friendly against Basford United, describing himself as "reasonably pleased". The Magpies won 2-0 at Greenwich Avenue on Saturday, as Dan Jones opened the scoring when his free kick found its way through a crowded penalty area and into the net. Notts then doubled before the break when midfielder Alex Howes skinned his man and slotted beyond the Basford keeper. A reasonably straightforward afternoon was however hampered y an injury to Curtis Thompson in the second half, as he felt a slight tweak in his hamstring. "I was reasonably pleased, I feel we could have punished them more in the second half," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "In the first we played to their strengths by giving them too many free-kicks which allowed them to put the ball in to our final third and around the box. "It's another clean sheet, but there are a few things we can start drilling into the lads to work on and to think about going forward. "I just said to the lads that I'm pleased we didn't concede and we can drip feed into them a few aspects we want them to think about. "There are things we can get better at. We can do that when we get them on the training pitch. Apart from Curtis Thompson, we've come through unscathed."
