  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’
  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
  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 s
  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 alr
  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 di
  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 G
  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 web
  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
  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
  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
  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,” N
  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 g
  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,” th
  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 b
  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
  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 h
  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, w
  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,”
  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 (
  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. “
  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
  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
