  1. Kevin Nolan has expressed his hopes of getting Mason Bennett back on loan next season but confirmed that he would not be fit for the Magpies' playoff campaign. The striker joined the Magpies from Derby County on the last day of the January transfer window and netted his first goal in his debut against Crewe Alexandra after coming on as a second-half substitute However, he was forced to return to Pride Park after rupturing his hamstring on his first start for the club against Barnet. “He’s back on the grass but it’s way too early for him,” Nolan told the official website. “There’s not enough game time or training minutes, even if we got to the final. “But we’re going to keep in contact with Derby and Mason himself to ensure that if there’s a possibility of getting him next year, we’re at the front of the queue. “We were so impressed with what we saw from Mason – not only on the field, but by the way he conducted himself and his eagerness to play for Notts County. “I’m hoping we can renew that at the beginning of next season but, first and foremost, we hope he gets back to full fitness as comfortably as possible because it was a nasty injury. “I’m sure, because of his professionalism, he’ll come back better and stronger.” 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.

  2. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight in being able to welcome Michael O’Connor back to action. The midfielder played the last 13 minutes of Easter Monday’s 1-0 defeat to Accrington Stanley when he came off the bench to replace Noor Husin. O’Connor was playing a first-team Notts game for the first time since last April when he suffered a serious knee injury in a 3-1 defeat to Portsmouth. “I think I’ve spoken a few times about Occy and how amazing he has been with the staff,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “Credit to Tom Hallas the physio and his team who have worked tirelessly with Michael. “With the way Occy has gone about his rehab it is an absolute testament to the lad and our medical staff that he was able to have 15 minutes. “I am delighted for him and it has given me another selection headache. But it’s a massive bonus to have your captain back. “I was happy with him and you can see he brings that character and he got involved in a little few bits and bobs. “But it’s going to take him time and that’s why we wanted him to play those minutes because it’s another tick in the box. “Hopefully going into the next three or four weeks we will see a lot more of him. He will feature a lot more and regularly.” 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.

  3. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has hailed Michael O'Connor's attitude in his rehabilitation and comeback from a serious knee injury. The club captain needed surgery to repair his cruciate ligament and his meniscus following a blow suffered in last April's 3-1 defeat to Portsmouth at Meadow Lane. However, O'Connor has made a return to full training and played 45 minutes of a behind-closed-doors friendly against Scunthorpe United on Monday. Magpies boss Nolan has been delighted at how the Northern Irishman has acquitted himself in his comeback and says he is already well ahead of schedule. “Michael played in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Scunthorpe which a few of the lads who haven’t played recently were also involved in,” he told the Nottingham Post. “We want those players ready for the games coming up in case of injury. “Occy got 45 minutes in and he’s been absolutely fantastic in his work ethic. It is a testament to himself and the medical staff in how they have handled his return. He’s way ahead of schedule, but we won’t push him too hard, too soon. “He’s on a plan and I am hoping he comes through that unscathed without suffering any fresh injuries. That’s always the worry when you’ve been out for such a long time. “But over the last week he has been involved in full-contact training and I must admit he’s got focus and a determination to come back fitter and stronger. “He’s worked so hard and tirelessly and I am hoping this is the next step in getting a black and white shirt on before the end of the season. This month may be too soon, but, again, there is no pressure on him.” 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. Kevin Nolan has confirmed that Ross Fitzsimons will not be involved in Notts County's League Two away game at Cheltenham Town after suffering a car accident on Monday. The former Crystal Palace goalkeeper was involved in a collision near Trent Bridge, and Nolan says he was not hurt but was shaken and as such will not be travelling to Whaddon Road with the squad. “It was nothing serious but Ross will not be travelling,” he told the Nottingham Post. “Obviously he’s a bit shaken up and it’s unfortunate because he’s just got a new car. “As you can imagine, now that we know he is alright he has taken a bit of stick. But the protocol is that we make sure he is alright and his safety and health is the most important thing. “It’s an unfortunate incident and one you don’t realise you have to deal with until you walk into the office. Cars can always be replaced. It might have actually knocked a bit of sense into him!” 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.

  5. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County are on the lookout for unattached players following Mason Bennett's season-ending injury but says "nobody has been standing out". The on-loan Derby County striker has undergone surgery on an injured hamstring which forced him to limp out of the 1-0 defeat to Barnet last weekend. “We spent a lot of hours trying to get Mason over and all we can hope for is that the operation has gone well for him and he gets his opportunities when he comes back,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post/ “If there is something to be done next season then we will discuss that, but the health of the lad is most important and we wish him well in his long recovery back. “We’ve been looking at all possibilities (free transfers), but nobody at the minute has been standing out. “We'll continue to look and see if we can pull one out of the hat. But if not then I'm delighted with the squad I’ve got. We’ve still got enough to do what we need to do.” 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. Kevin Nolan has provided a positive update on Michael O'Connor, saying the Notts County captain is "well on the road to recovery". The Northern Irish midfielder and club captain has been out of action since last April when he suffered a knee injury in the defeat to Portsmouth which required surgery to repair ligament damage. A long layoff has ensued but Nolan is hopeful Occy will be available to join in full training in a fortnight's time, albeit in strictly non-contact sessions. “It’s going fantastically well,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He spent four or five days at St George’s Park last week just to give him a new environment. “It’s always nice to have somebody on the outside see how good it is going and he has come back with a program and hopefully in the next couple of weeks he will be joining in. “It will be on a non-contact basis but he will be involved in possession sessions because he’s not ready for tackling yet. “But he is well on the road to recovery and touch wood it will continue. I am very hopeful he will play again this season and I do think you will see Michael O’Connor in a shirt. “He is very confident and doing very well, but it’s just little steps. We don’t want to rush him and do anything daft because we are talking about a lad’s career here. His welfare is most important first and foremost.” Nolan also spoke about Shaun Brisley being the latest player to catch the virus sweeping through the Notts camp. The defender sat out Tuesday's 2-1 win over Carlisle United, but Nolan praised Brighton & Hove Albion loanee Ben Hall for his "fantastic" debut in Brisley's place. "We got a call yesterday saying Shaun had come down with the flu so he is off until Thursday and then we will see how he is," the gaffer told the Notts site. "But I thought Ben (Hall, Brighton loanee) was absolutely magnificent and had a fantastic debut. That is why we brought him in and he's taken his opportunity with both hands and I'm delighted for him. "It's going to be tough for Shaun to get back into the team."

  7. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has admitted that Mason Bennett is likely to be sidelined for a fairly long time after injuring his hamstring. The forward, on loan at Meadow Lane from Derby County, had to come off in the first half of Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Barnet. Bennett is to go for a scan which will provide a clearer picture of when he can be back in action but Nolan sadly revealed that "we won't be seeing him any time soon". "I'm gutted for the lad because he looked sharp in training and got a goal on his debut and then his first start," the Notts boss told the official website. "He's going to go for a scan and then we will know more in the next 48 hours. "We're hoping it isn't as bad as first feared but we won't be seeing him any time soon. "He wanted to get games in and we wanted him here because of his quality but this is an opportunity for someone to step in and make themselves a real asset to the squad."

  8. Adam Collin has expressed his relief at being back in action after missing several months out through injury. The Notts County goalkeeper injured his knee in the 2-1 win over Barnet on October 14 and only returned to action in the 1-1 draw with Swansea City in the FA Cup just over a week ago. “I feel okay because it wasn’t planned for me to come straight back into the team against Swansea,” Collin told the Nottingham Post. “A couple of reserve games would have been nice, but I had to come back in and I was pleased to give a good account of myself. “It was really frustrating to get injured because up until the point I got injured, I was probably having the best season of my career. “I had six clean sheets out of 13 games and was on my way to keeping my seventh when I got injured against Barnet. “To miss out through my first injury as a professional footballer was frustrating. I am just glad to be back now, fit and playing.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Football Manics by signing up for FREE to the website, visiting the forum and joining the chat with fellow football fans.
  9. Kevin Nolan has provided an injury update on several players ahead of Notts County's home game against Port Vale on New Year's Day. Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy will face late fitness tests, while Rob Milsom will have to see a specialist. The four players did not take part in Saturday's 1-0 loss at Swindon Town and, while Milsom is definitely out, it will be a case of taking it "day by day" with the other three. Nolan also provided updates on goalkeeper Adam Collin, who is now "a couple of weeks away" from a return, and captain Michael O'Connor, who is now back in training. “They are five lads who could start in the team,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “We’ve just got to play it day by day. It just shows that when I talk about how important the depth of the squad is because you can lose four or five in seven days because of this period. “Rob has to go and see a specialist, while Shola, Forte and Duffy are touch and go. “Adam Collin is still a couple of weeks away, while Occy returned to the training pitch this week which was lovely to see him running around the pitch. “But it wasn’t about the lads who were missing on Saturday. I thought the lads who played deserved to get a draw. “They did more than enough, but the defeat just came from sloppy defending on our part.” 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.

  10. Kevin Nolan should find out today if Shola Ameobi, Jonathan Forte and Rob Milsom will be available for Saturday's game with Swindon Town. The trio all missed the 4-1 win over Morecambe on Boxing Day with knocks but Nolan has been monitoring their fitness over the last two days. Notts will be hoping to build on the victory at the Globe Arena to further entrench their position in the top three of League Two. “I am hoping they are all going to be available,” he told the Nottingham Post on Wednesday. “I will know more on Thursday if they are going to have a chance of making the game. “We are hopeful some of them will be back but, as you saw against Morecambe, the lads who came in did a fantastic job. “They will be expecting not to lose their place because of it. That’s why we built the squad we have because it enables us to make changes in what is a very unforgiving league.” 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.

  11. Kevin Nolan has revealed that Shola Ameobi and Jonathan Forte face fitness tests after picking up knocks in Notts County's 3-3 draw with Cambridge United on Saturday. Ameobi signalled to the bench to come off in the second half of the game, but had to remain on the pitch as the Magpies had already made all three substitutions. Forte, meanwhile, took a blow to the hip after coming on as a sub and was visibly struggling to stay on his feet after scoring the injury-time equaliser which completed the remarkable comeback. “Shola is going to be a worry with all the games coming up,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post ahead of the Boxing Day visit of Morecambe. “Hopefully it’s only a tight hamstring, but we will assess him over the next 48 hours. “Forte took a really bad knock when he came on so for most of the game we had nine men. “But it was a testament to what they showed all year round that they kept going.” 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.

  12. Kevin Nolan has provided an update on Michael O'Connor's rehabilitation, saying the Notts County club captain is doing really well and is on the right track. The 30-year-old needed surgery to repair his cruciate ligaments and on his meniscus, an injury picked up against Portsmouth in April last season. Nolan says he is delighted with the progress made so far by the midfielder and hasn’t ruled out a return by the end of the season. “Occy’s professionalism has shown right through this process,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He’s had a few minor setbacks, but the way he’s gone about it, the way he’s attacked this injury – he’s doing really well. “He had a lot of problems in that knee but it’s a testament to him, Tom Hallas and the people working behind him. “He’s done fantastically well and he’s got to continue working hard. We’ve just got to keep the reins on him and let him not go too fast too soon. “We want him back as quickly as possible, but as I always say, the health of the player is the most important thing. “We want him back when he’s right. He’s in a good place and I am absolutely delighted. “What a result it would be to have him back for the final few weeks of the season. “He has experience, intelligence and being your skipper, it would be a massive boost for everyone around the club.” 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. Kevin Nolan has provided an update on Shola Ameobi, revealing that the Notts County striker is touch and go in terms of his availability ahead of Saturday's League Two meeting with Luton Town. The veteran marksman sat out Saturday’s 3-2 win over Oxford City in the second round of the FA Cup with a suspected groin injury. Nolan insists that Ameobi is doing well but, due to having potentially aggravated a previous injury, the club's medical team are being cautious with him as they don't want to lose him for a long time. “Shola’s okay, but we have to wrap him up in cotton wool,” the County boss told the Nottingham post. “He tweaked a bit of a previous injury so we are just being careful and cautious. “We don’t want to lose him for more than one game. If it’s one then we will have to deal with that, but we don’t want him missing four, five or six weeks. “He is a massive part of what we are doing going forwards.” 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. Kevin Nolan has revealed that strike pair Shola Ameobi and Jon Stead face a race against time to be involved in Notts County's FA Cup second-round tie against Oxford City this Saturday. Stead limped out of the 1-1 draw at Yeovil Town earlier in the month with a leg injury, while Ameobi has only recently returned from a knock himself. In addition to the veteran front pairing, Callum Saunders is also recovering from a bout of flu. "Steady is recovering slowly but surely," Nolan told the official Notts site. "We'll see in the next 24-48 hours whether or not he'll have a chance to be available. "Shola is the same, he's been carrying a groin injury, so both of them will be assessed late on, but it's very doubtful. "Apart from that we have a clean bill of health, which I'm very pleased about going into this stage of the season. "To only have one player with a slight strain and another with a contact injury, which can't be helped, is an absolute testament to the work all the staff behind the scenes have been doing."

  15. Kevin Nolan is optimistic that Notts County duo Adam Collin and Michael O'Connor will come back to the “top of their game” after providing an update on their return from long-term injuries. O’Connor has been sidelined since April because of a serious knee injury, while Collin has been absent after suffering a knee injury of his own in last month’s win over Barnet. "Michael has been on an anti-gravity treadmill which has allowed him to run in straight lines," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "Losing him was a massive blow to us and having him in the squad this year would have put us on another level because of his quality and what he brings to the team. "Adam's swelling has gone down and he's meeting with the specialist so we will have more news soon. “We're hopeful he will come out of the brace so he can start getting back to work sooner rather than later. "He has been fantastic since I walked through the door and he has taken his performances to another level this season after finishing last season strongly. "The most important thing is we get them back at the top of their game and we are not putting them under any stress to ensure there is no recurrence of their injuries. "They're two massive characters but it's brilliant to see how well the lads have coped without them."

  16. Kevin Nolan has confirmed that Jon Stead suffered a dead leg in Notts County's 1-1 draw with Yeovil Town on Tuesday night. The 34-year-old had to be substituted in the first half of the League Two encounter at Huish Park following a collision with Omar Sowunmi, Jonathan Forte taking his place up front. “Steady got a horrible knock on his thigh,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He’s got a big bump on it and we will be assessing it over the next 24 to 48 hours. “It just depends on his recovery powers. The medical team will get down to work icing it and given how fit he is, I am hoping it won’t be a massive thing. “These are nasty injuries. People will say it’s only a dead leg but it’s on his quad and he will be using that a lot. “We have to be careful. We don’t want to rush him back and he pulls that thigh because it will be weakened because of the bruising. We will do what is right for him and right for 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.

  17. Kevin Nolan is hoping that Shola Ameobi will not be out for too long but insists Notts County can continue to cope in case he remains absent beyond this weekend. The veteran striker sat out the 1-1 draw at Stevenage last weekend, failing to make the squad with what is believed to be a groin injury. Nolan suggested that the injury is minor as he was hoping to have Ameobi back for this Saturday's encounter with Cheltenham Town but will not rush him back to action. “He’s done really well for us, but that’s why we have the squad we do in that if we do have these niggling injuries, we have people who can come in,” the manager told the Nottingham Post. “I am hoping Shola isn’t going to be too long. We did the same with Dan Jones when he was injured that we have to make sure he is happy and we give him the genuine care that’s needed. “He’s a top class pro and hopefully fit for this weekend, but, if not, then we have the squad to hopefully keep it going and working hard to get back to winning ways.” 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. Kevin Nolan has confirmed that Adam Collin will miss Notts County's trip to Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday and will be sent for a scan a knee injury. The Magpies goalkeeper suffered a blow in the first half of the 2-1 win over Barnet and despite toughing it out for a while, ended up having to be taken off. Ross Fitzsimons came on in Collin's place at Meadow Lane on Saturday and is likely to line up between the sticks at Gresty Road, though Branislav Pindroch could also be considered. “Unfortunately Adam won’t make the game against Crewe because he has had a nasty bang on his knee,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "We are just hoping that it is a bit of bone bruising and that he will be available for the weekend, but Tuesday has just come too soon. “He is going for a scan, which will give us a bit more knowledge of what is going on in his knee. “But we have two understudies who have been pushing him to the limit, which is why I think you’ve seen Adam in the form he is in. “He’s been fantastic for us, but now it’s up to one of the other two to come in and claim his spot and keep his spot.” 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. Kevin Nolan has given a positive assessment of Michael O'Connor's rehabilitation from a serious knee injury. The midfielder, who recently turned 30, needed surgery to repair his cruciate ligaments and on his meniscus, an injury picked up against Portsmouth in April last season. Nolan says he has been happy with the progress made so far by the club captain and hasn’t ruled out a return by the player at the end of the season. “Occy is in a good place,” the manager told the Nottingham Post. “We are on target. He has been absolutely meticulous in all his rehab. “Johnny Wilson (head of medicine) has been absolutely brilliant with his plan. Occy has followed it to a tee and hats off to both of them because everything is on schedule. “I am hoping it has given him a massive chance of putting the black and white kit on by the end of the season. He’s just got to keep working hard. “We’ve tried to keep him busy by getting him watching games. “We asked him to go up in the stands when we are here (Meadow Lane) and if he sees anything then he can radio down to give us information. “We want him as involved as much as possible. He came with us to Exeter and spent a couple of days doing his rehab down there. “Occy is a great lad and we are all rooting for him to get back as quickly as possible. “But we really have to be really careful because it’s his future. We will give him the best care we can.” 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.

  20. Kevin Nolan has played down Shola Ameobi's hamstring injury, suggesting that he will not be out of action for too long. The veteran striker was forced off in Notts County's win over Morecambe last weekend and was unavailable for the midweek win over Swindon Town. Ameobi is not expected to play any part in the Magpies' trip to Crawley tomorrow, but Nolan insists his backroom team will take good care of him and should be able to establish a recovery timeline in the next few days. “We’re just taking it daily. It’s going to take a bit of time,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “It’s his hamstring. We thought it was maybe an overstretch, but when we looked at the video, and when the medical staff looked at the video, it seemed it was more what a sprinter would get in the way he hyper-extended his leg. “They are really confident that he won’t be out for too long. I’ve got a wonderful backroom staff who work tirelessly day in, day out, so I’m sure they’re giving him (Ameobi) the best treatment at the minute. “Knowing Shola, it won’t be too long until we see him back on the pitch. “Hopefully I’ll be able to give you a timeline in the next few days, certainly after the weekend. But at the minute, we’re just taking it daily because we haven’t really scanned it yet because we wanted to let it settle down.” 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 given a positive update on Shaun Brisley after the defender suffered a blow to the head in Notts County's 1-0 win over Port Vale on Saturday. The centre-back was knocked to the ground after the blow late on in the game and had to be taken off. This left the Magpies to see the rest of the match out with 10 men after they had already made all three substitutions. However, Nolan is not worried about the long-term prognosis, telling the Nottingham Post: “He’s okay, he was up and about afterwards. “Shaun is a great lad and he wanted to stay on. He could remember everything which is always a good sign. "But we have to make sure we look after him and the welfare of the boy. “He’s a strong competitor and hopefully we won’t miss him for too many games. But we will do what is right by him because that’s the type of club we are.” 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. Kevin Nolan is hoping that Curtis Thompson's hamstring injury in Notts County's pre-season friendly win over Basford United is not too serious and will warrant just weeks rather than months of being on the sidelines. The midfielder came on at half time for the Magpies at Greenwich Avenue but had to be taken off midway through the second period of the 2-0 victory. Speaking about the injury to Thompson, Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "It didn't look good, but speaking to him afterwards he said that he didn't feel anything pop in his hamstring. "He said he felt it twinge and I am hoping it's not as serious as I first thought it would be. "I hope it's something that will lead him back on to the training pitch in a matter of weeks rather than months. "So fingers crossed but we will only know more later in the week when we've given him a proper look over."
