  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has hailed Jonathan Forte after the striker grabbed his third goal in two games against Colchester United on Saturday. The 31-year-old has endured extended spells outside of the squad but his equaliser spurred the Magpies to victory as they ran out 3-1 winners at the Weston Homes Community Stadium. It was the first time Notts have sealed back to back wins in League Two since last September and Nolan praised Forte for the impact he had on the game. "You can see he's riding the crest of a wave at the minute," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "He k
  5. Kevin Nolan has admitted that he doesn't "mind being proven wrong" as Jonathan Forte scored a brace to help Notts County run out 2-1 winners over Coventry City. The 31-year-old has struggled for minutes this term, but took his opportunity wonderfully on Saturday by grabbing two goals either side of a Sky Blues equalised. "Jonathan is a quiet lad and gets on with his business," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "He has been left out of squads and has something to prove, whether it is to me or anyone else. "He has proven he can score goals at this level and I don't mind being p
  6. Notts County returned to winning ways as Jonathan Forte's brace sealed a 2-1 victory over League Two promotion rivals Coventry City at Meadow Lane. Pride of Nottingham-sponsored Forte broke the deadlock when he glanced in Jorge Grant's corner in the 60th minute. Coventry equalised in the 85th minute as substitute Jordan Ponticelli deceived goalkeeper Adam Collin with a deft flick into the back of the net. However, the Magpies responded immediately when Forte got a touch on Shola Ameobi's low cross to secure a vital three points. Notts had not won in their last four games bu
  7. Notts County returned to winning ways as Jonathan Forte's brace sealed a 2-1 victory over League Two promotion rivals Coventry City at Meadow Lane. Pride of Nottingham-sponsored Forte broke the deadlock when he glanced in Jorge Grant's corner in the 60th minute. Coventry equalised in the 85th minute as substitute Jordan Ponticelli deceived goalkeeper Adam Collin with a deft flick into the back of the net.

  8. Notts County have claimed their first win in six League Two games as fellow playoff chasers Coventry City were beaten 2-1 in Saturday's game at Meadow Lane. The match began slowly, with little of note happening in the opening 20 minutes, before Notts would muster the first chance of the game as Jorge Grant rifled wide from 12 yards out. Coventry countered with Rod McDonald blasting over, while Tom Bayliss saw an effort deflected wide and McDonald then sent another shot off target. Marc McNulty and Max Biamou also had sniffs of goal, while at the other end, Jonathan Forte - proud
  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. Alan Hardy has described Notts County's 2-1 home win over Crawley Town last season as the game which transformed the mindsets of the players and set the tone for the New Era. Notts headed into the game on January 28 without a win in 13 league games, having lost 11 of them, and despite Hardy's takeover earlier that month, things still looked dire for the club. However, County emerged victorious as Jonathan Forte scored a late winner and gave his side their first league win since October and their first league victory at Meadow Lane since September. In his final Nottingham Post co
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Kevin Nolan has bemoaned the referee in Notts County's 1-1 draw at Yeovil Town for missing a penalty which could have put the visitors two goals up. After substitute Jonathan Forte had put the Magpies ahead late in the first half, Lewis Alessandra’s flick appeared to be handled by Sid Nelson, but Dean Whitestone failed to spot the incident. The Glovers went on to repel a series of Notts attacks in the second half before pulling level through a penalty of their own, converted by former Magpie Francois Zoko after he was hauled down by Richard Duffy. “I think we should have had all
  14. 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
  15. Winning football games is never the easiest thing to achieve. However, when you do manage to pull it off, it restores a sense of pride, not just within the club and its players but it spreads within the fan community. The momentum it builds can be a very powerful psychological tool, which I believe is a part of why Notts County have managed to assert themselves strongly after the opening day defeat to Coventry City. It’s been a long time since the club has felt like it’s moving in the right direction, and I believe we should continue to aim high. Another aspect which only deserv
  16. September 2017 is now over, but as foundations go, Notts County have laid some great ones over the month, with a huge six wins from their seven games. So who have been the standout Magpies players in September and how do they line up? Pride of Nottingham, alongside a selection of Notts County fans, have come together and, following much deliberations, drawn up a September starting XI. So to all those picked, well done and keep up the good work going into October and for the rest of the season! Goalkeeper: Adam Collin Left-back: Dan Jones Centre-back: Shaun Brisley
  17. August is over and done with, Notts County's first month of the season is now just a memory, and we move on to September's fixtures with the Magpies nicely nestled in seventh place in League Two. However, much like any other job where its employees are routinely recognised and rewarded, it's worth recognising the players who have impressed in the black and white in August. Jorge Grant has already been named the player of the month by Notts County, the fans picking him head and shoulders over everyone else (64.8 percent compared to second-placed Terry Hawkridge with 20.1 percent).
  18. Kevin Nolan has described his Notts County players as "magnificent" as they sealed a 2-0 win over Morecambe in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. Dan Jones opened the scoring midway through the first half with a well-taken free kick, while substitute Jonathan Forte made sure of all three points with a late strike. The result sees the Magpies climb to third in the table and stretches their unbeaten run in all competitions to six games, but Nolan is eager for his side to regroup ahead of Tuesday night's clash with Swindon Town. "It was a lot better than last week's pe
  19. Four games into the 2017/18 League Two season I can honestly say how good it is to be back, with the club in a new direction and the players largely showing that we can move forward as a club – especially after the disappointing opening day defeat against Coventry City. Performances against Scunthorpe United in the League Cup and against Wycombe Wanderers in the league highlight the much-improved atmosphere and work ethic at Notts. With many of the new signings getting to grip with the expectations of Kevin Nolan, the togetherness in the early games shows just how different things ar
  20. Sorry Kev, but given this is the meme of the moment, it has to be done
  21. Kevin Nolan has hinted towards Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi remaining the first-choice strike partnership at Notts County, claiming that Jonathan Forte was not unlucky to have been named on the bench for the 2-2 draw with Accrington Stanley. Forte had scored in his previous two appearances before Friday’s League Two fixture at Meadow Lane, but was nonetheless not picked in the starting XI as the Magpies shared the spoils with Stanley. “I don’t think he (Forte) was unlucky. I explained the reasoning to him on Thursday why he didn’t start and he took it on the chin,” Nolan told the Notti
  22. Jonathan Forte believes he can get his scoring tally into double figures again this season if he is given game time for Notts County. The 31-year-old struck for the Magpies at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, helping his team edge back into the lead and eventually setting up the groundwork for a 4-2 win at Adams Park. Forte also scored against Everton's Under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy and is now being urged by fans to start in County's game against Accrington Stanley this Friday. Notts manager Kevin Nolan spoke several times of having had a "frank discussion" with his player,
  23. Notts County forward Jonathan Forte admits he is not happy with a role as an impact substitute, and that he wants to be starting for the Magpies. The 31-year-old came off the bench at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, just after Notts had relinquished a two-goal lead, and headed his side back in front. Forte also played a big part in the fourth, setting up the groundwork for Lewis Alessandra to strike as Notts came away from Adams Park with a 4-2 win. The former three-time Notts loanee was omitted from the squad's 3-0 defeat at Coventry City in the opening League Two game of the se
  24. Kevin Nolan has expressed his relief with Notts County clawing out a 4-2 win at Wycombe Wanderers after being pegged back from a two-goal lead. A Richard Duffy header and an Adam El Abd own goal saw the Magpies head into the Adams Park dressing rooms at the break in an advantageous position. However, the Chairboys hit back through Nick Freeman and Joe Jacobson, only for Jonathan Forte and Lewis Alessandra to restore County's two-goal lead late on. “Relief is a big word because Gareth (Ainsworth, Wycombe boss) set his team up to come at us in the second half,” Nolan told the Nott
  25. Notts County have triumphed in a topsy-turvy, nervy and ultimately thrilling game against Wycombe Wanderers, claiming a 4-2 win at Adams Park. The Magpies threatened early on through Shaun Brisley, whose far post header was cleared off the line by Michael Harriman. Notts then took the lead after just 14 minutes, a pinpoint Dan Jones free kick falling perfectly to Richard Duffy, who made no mistake with a thumping header into the back of the Chairboys net. Kevin Nolan's charges promptly doubled their advantage in comical fashion just a minute later, as Luke O'Nien's clearance hit
