  1. Kevin Nolan has revealed that he is getting congratulatory messages from former colleagues for having led Notts County to the top of League Two, but remains committed to keeping complacency at bay. The Magpies' blip at Coventry City on the first day of the season is now a distant memory as the club gears up for an early top-of-the-table clash against Exeter City. Notts could secure a sixth consecutive league win should they triumph at St James' Park tonight, but despite the early pats on the back from several former West Ham teammates, Nolan says he must "keep reminding everybody" ab
  2. Notts County and Exeter City have met a total of 44 times over their history. The first meeting came at St James’ Park in Division Three (South) on 1 November 1930, and it which finished as a 3-3 draw. The Magpies have an excellent record against the Grecians; out of those 43 games, Notts claimed a result in 36, with 17 wins and 19 draws. Our recent form (last five) is not too bad, with two wins, two draws and one defeat. Exeter was formed in 1901 as St. Sidwell's United and played in the Southern League from 1908 until 1920, when that league's top division was absorbed int
  3. Notts County have climbed to the top of League Two after a resounding 4-1 victory against 10-man Lincoln City. The Magpies rode out a tricky start at Meadow Lane to edge into a numerical advantage when Billy Knott was sent off for a high boot into the face of Ryan Yates. Notts then took the lead through Jon Stead and, despite being pegged back by Harry Anderson's equaliser, went on to strike thrice more, through Matt Tootle, Jorge Grant and ex-Imp Terry Hawkridge. Here is an in-depth analysis of the game from Chris. Was the result fair? Notts asserted domination after
  4. Notts County have recorded a fifth win on the spin and climbed to the top of League Two thanks to a 4-1 hammering of local rivals Lincoln City at Meadow Lane. The Magpies were under pressure early on but Billy Knott's red card for a wild challenge on Ryan Yates gave Kevin Nolan's team a man advantage. Jon Stead volleyed in the opening goal but the Imps hit back in the early stages of the second period as Harry Anderson's header pulled them level. Notts were soon back in front, with Matt Tootle rifling the hosts into the lead once again and celebrating in sluggish style, before J

  6. Kevin Nolan has praised Notts County following their impressive 4-1 win over Lincoln City, claiming that fans have finally seen what the Magpies can do once they click. Notts rode out a tricky start at Meadow Lane to edge into a numerical advantage when Billy Knott was sent off for a high boot into the face of Ryan Yates. The hosts then took the lead through Jon Stead and, despite being pegged back by Harry Anderson's equaliser, went on to strike thrice more, through Matt Tootle, Jorge Grant and ex-Imp Terry Hawkridge. "I thought Lincoln started very well and put us on the back
  7. Notts County's amazing form shows no sign of letting up with a fifth win on the spin, a 4-1 hammering of local rivals Lincoln City at Meadow Lane. The Imps were quicker out of the starting blocks as Josh Ginnelly saw an effort tipped over the bar by goalkeeper Adam Collin and from the resulting corner, defender Sean Raggett headed over when unmarked. Kevin Nolan's charges were under the cosh as Lincoln sought the breakthrough, but they found themselves a man down when, 28 minutes in, midfielder Billy Knott was dismissed for a high foot on Ryan Yates. With seven minutes of the fi
  8. Notts County are enjoying a purple patch at present, sitting second in League Two thanks to a four-game winning run, and eight unbeaten in all competitions. Up next for the Magpies is a local derby with Lincoln City coming to Meadow Lane to try their luck against Kevin Nolan's well-drilled side. Here is Chris's Scouting Report for this week. History Notts County and Lincoln City have met a total of 65 times in competitive matches over the years. The first fixture took the place all the way back in November 1893, a Division Two game in Nottingham which resulted in an aw
  9. Notts County's remaining three fixtures in September are quite the top billing. First, a local derby against Lincoln City at Meadow Lane. Then a trip to Exeter City in a clash between first and second in the table (or first and third depending on Saturday's result - hopefully not!) And then the big one... Mansfield Town away. As fixture runs go, what are the most taxing / high-profile that you remember over the years? And in terms of this one, how do you think we'll do? Can we... (hushed tones) make it a 100% month?
  10. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has admitted that he does not know what his team to face Lincoln City will be, describing his selection headache as "brilliant". The Magpies welcome the Imps to Meadow Lane on Saturday with the possibility of making it nine games unbeaten, or even five wins on the spin in League Two. In addition, Nolan has not ruled out the possibility of Shola Ameobi and Shaun Brisley playing, despite the former having missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and the latter having limped off against Crawley Town. “Shaun we’ll look after with 48 hours un
  11. Here is Pride of Nottingham's roundup of all the biggest news stories from League Two over the last week. - Port Vale parted company with manager Michael Brown after a run of seven league games without a win left the freshly relegated Valiants bottom of League Two. - Chesterfield, another recently relegated side, sacked boss Gary Caldwell after the Spireites were beaten for the seventh time this season. - Guy Branston was subsequently appointed as interim manager at Chesterfield, with former Middlesbrough, Derby and Italy striker Fabrizio Ravanelli believed to be interested in t
  12. There is little to be said about Notts County that hasn't been said already - we are flying high at the minute in virtually every aspect of the club. Eight matches unbeaten, four-game winning run in League Two, four clean sheets in a row, second in the table, and our brilliant manager Kevin Nolan has just signed a new three-year contract at Meadow Lane. Up next for Notts is one of two derbies in the next three games, which sees newly promoted Lincoln City come to Meadow Lane on Saturday. Pride of Nottingham has spoken to Imps fan Luke Kempson (Twitter: @LukeKempson1) to get an i
  13. Alan Hardy has described manager Kevin Nolan as Notts County's "figurehead", similar to what Sir Alex Ferguson was at Manchester United. The former Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United and West Ham midfielder has just committed to the Meadow Lane hotseat by penning a new three-year deal. Nolan helped the Magpies avoid relegation last season following his appointment in January, turning around a side that had lost 10 games on the trot. This season, the 35-year-old overcame a 3-0 defeat at Coventry City on the opening day of the season to steer Notts to second in League Two, boastin
  14. I have to say, Jorge Grant is not the only person linked to Notts County who thinks the team's campaign so far has exceeded his expectations. I've been pinching myself about just how well the Pies have done. And many other fans will also be somewhat incredulous about the season so far. Over the years we have been mentally engineered to prepare for, experience and cope with disappointment. So to be witnessing a club that, at present, is stable and performing well from top to bottom feels like uncharted territory. With Notts currently second in the table, boasting an eight-game unbeate
  15. Crawley Town goalkeeper Glenn Morris has paid tribute to Notts County following their performance and result in their 1-0 win at Broadfield Stadium. Jorge Grant scored the winner on Saturday, firing home from Jonathan Forte's slide pass, as the Magpies cemented their hold on second place in League Two. Morris said Notts are well worth their high ranking in the table as they put in a solid performance on the Red Devils' patch. He told the West Sussex County Times: “They managed the game well, we just couldn’t get our football going because they were breaking it up well, getting f
  16. Jorge Grant is delighted with the way Notts County are playing at the minute, saying they're doing the basics right and taking their chances up front. The Magpies cemented their hold on second place in League Two after claiming a fourth consecutive win - and fourth consecutive clean sheet - at Crawley Town on Saturday. Grant scored the only goal of the game in the 1-0 win at the Broadfield Stadium and, as well as praising the team as a whole, he also feels that he is growing up as a player thanks to Kevin Nolan's input. "I'm absolutely buzzing with the away win," he told the off
  17. Notts County have secured a fourth win in a row as they saw off Crawley Town by a score of 1-0 in Saturday's trip to Broadfield Stadium. Jorge Grant was the hero once again for the Magpies as he drilled home from close range after Jonathan Forte played a low ball into the loanee's path. The result keeps Notts second in the table and takes their unbeaten run to eight matches, ensuring yet another weekend of smiles for the Black and White Army. Here is some of the reaction from some of the Notts players, the manager, and the Black and White Army. Kevin Nolan “I’m absolut
  18. Notts County have made it four clean-sheet wins on the spin after securing a hard-earned 1-0 win over Crawley Town in Saturday's League Two encounter at the Broadfield Stadium. Jorge Grant was the hero once again for the Magpies as he drilled home from close range after Jonathan Forte played a low ball into the loanee's path. The result keeps Notts second in the table and takes their unbeaten run to eight matches, ensuring yet another weekend of smiles for the Black and White Army. Notts have uploaded the match highlights to their YouTube channel - we have shared it on here so y
  19. Notts County's season continues to go from strength to strength as their unbeaten run now stretches to eight games, not to mention a four-match winning streak in League Two and four clean sheets in a row. The latest team to fall victim to the Magpies' continued renaissance is Crawley Town, with Kevin Nolan taking his team to the Broadfield Stadium and leaving with a 1-0 win. Notts weighed in with an effort on target after just two minutes when Jon Stead's low angled shot was held by Red Devils goalkeeper Glenn Morris. There was little to shout about for most of the remainder of
  20. Kevin Nolan has praised Notts County's mentality in claiming a fourth win on the bounce against Crawley Town on Saturday. Jorge Grant bagged the winner from Jonathan Forte's cross-shot at the Broadfield Stadium to leave the Magpies in rude health at the top of League Two. The Notts gaffer told the official site following the 1-0 win: “I’m absolutely delighted. The lads have got a mentality about them now. “They’ve come here and made sure they played the way they wanted to play and countered Crawley’s strengths. I thought we deserved the win. “When we’re not on top form in p
  21. This weekend, Notts County head to the Broadfield Stadium to face Crawley Town in League Two. The Magpies have a chance to make it eight games unbeaten in all competition should they get a result against Harry Kewell's side. History Notts County have only ever played Crawley Town 10 times in their history. The first fixture between the two was just under five years ago, on 10 November 2012. This milestone first meeting between the two, played at Meadow Lane, finished 1-1. Meanwhile the return fixture, played away on the 9th March 2013, ended as a goalless draw.
  22. Richard Duffy is happy for Notts County to be known and established as a side with a solid, watertight defence as he aims to lead the team to an eighth unbeaten game in all competitions today. The Magpies have kept four clean sheets in seven games, virtually overturning the calamity that was Coventry City away, to set up a League Two clash at Crawley Town this afternoon from the dizzying heights of second in the table. Duffy, this season's skipper for Notts, also praises his defensive partnership with centre-back teammate Shaun Brisley, and is happy enough with his tenure as captain
  23. Crawley Town boss Harry Kewell is expecting an aggressive and entertaining game between his side and Notts County tomorrow. The Magpies travel to the Broadfield Stadium at the weekend with the chance of making it eight games unbeaten in all competitions. Kewell knows Nolan well, having faced him in the Premier League in the 2000s, and is relishing the chance to take him on from the dugout this time. "It's sure to be an aggressive game, but an entertaining one as well," the Australian told the official Crawley website. "I'm sure as fellow former players who've played against
  24. Approaching today's game against Swindon Town, Kevin Nolan has said that Jonathan Forte will start up front due to the injury suffered by Shola Ameobi. Forte offers something different in attack compared to Jon Stead and Ameobi. He is easily our fastest striker and at the minute our most prolific with two league goals, coming against Wycombe and Morecambe, and one in the Checkatrade Trophy against Everton. Pace up front is important in any league, especially in League Two. It can make all the difference, whether the striker in question is in the starting lineup trying to get you that
