  1. Mark Yeates has confirmed that he wants to stay on at Notts County past the end of the season and admits several other out-of-contract players do too. The former Blackpool winger signed for the Magpies in January on a short-term deal which expires in the summer, alongside those of the majority of the players. Yeates, who will face his former club on Saturday, says he gets on really well with manager Kevin Nolan and would sign a contract if it were put in front of him. "The gaffer and I get on really well and I am sure we will sit down at some point," he told the Nottingham Post. "I am not the only one, there are quite a few boys he wants to speak to as well. "All I can say is that it's a great club and I've really enjoyed it. We've done what the gaffer set out to, which is to keep the club in the division. "Everybody can give themselves a pat on the back, but as for myself, I am not 100 percent sure what will happen. "I've enjoyed it immensely. It's a great club and I've made some good mates. My relationship with the gaffer is one of the best I've had for a long time. "If something was to be put in front of me then I would like to stay."

  3. Matt Tootle is optimist that a "strange season" for Notts County can end on a high note after moving 11 points clear of the League Two drop zone. The Magpies put in an immense performance to claim a 1-0 win over Barnet at Meadow Lane on Sunday, Tootle scoring a second-half winner. Kevin Nolan's charges were visibly exhausted at the end of the game, having been a man down for most of the game after Mark Yeates was sent off early on by referee Keith Stroud. Tootle told the official Notts site: “I’ve scored a few in the league but that’s my first one in a while. "It was a good first one for Notts and, the way the game went with us only having 10 men, I think it was a great time to get it. I was made up to get the goal. "Driving here today I knew how important the three points were for us and I’m over the moon with how it’s gone. “Of course we aren’t mathematically safe and, although teams down the bottom are struggling to win also, we aren’t resting on our laurels until we're fully safe. "The gaffer has been really putting us through our paces in training. The work we are doing at the moment has set us up for the busy schedule - we are fitter than we were two months ago and I felt we looked like the team with 11 men at the end today. “As a defender you want clean sheets and even today with ten men we looked really organised and strong as a unit. That’s testament to the gaffer coming in and doing the work with the lads. “We want to finish as best as we can. If we can win another five or six this season, which we are more than capable of doing, we can end what has been a strange season on a high note."

  4. Notts County's revival continues to gather pace as the League Two relegation zone is now 11 points away, thanks to the Magpies claiming a 1-0 win over Barnet on Sunday despite falling down to ten men early in the Meadow Lane encounter. With just 11 minutes on the clock, Mark Yeates was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Ricardo Almeida Santos that referee Keith Stroud deemed worthy of a sending-off. The Notts fans in the stands could have been forgiven for expecting the worst, but Kevin Nolan's charges did not let their numerical disadvantage get to them. Barnet striker John Akinde then tried to win a penalty minutes later when he appeared to be hauled down by Notts goalkeeper Adam Collin, only to be booked for simulation. The hosts managed to create chances with Marc Bola going close on two occasions from distance, and at the break, the deadlock had not yet been broken. It would get better for the Magpies early in the second half as Jorge Grant teed up Matt Tootle, who lashed a superb finish past Benjamin Buchel for his first goal in black and white. Barnet fought back in a bid to claim an equaliser and could have levelled when substitute Ruben Bover Izquierdo blazed over from eight yards. With the game stretched, Grant could have got himself on the scoresheet when he raced onto a fine Shola Ameobi pass, but he curled wide, though ultimately it did not matter.

  5. Of all the players Notts County have within their squad, it’s often the youngsters who are referred to as being the key in order to survive the drop from League Two. In January, the club reinforced itself with the arrivals of Jorge Grant, Marc Bola, Josh Clackstone and Tahvon Campbell. However, it was the arrival of experienced veteran striker Shola Ameobi that captivated the fans' excitement the most. I value the experience that players of Ameobi’s quality bring. Mark Stallard mentioned on BBC Radio Nottingham that Ameobi has the quality to help, noting that the frontman may not be in the prime of his career but if he can regain match sharpness there is no doubt just how significant his arrival would be. Having the likes of Ameobi, Kevin Nolan and Alan Smith on our books as players, individuals who have competed at the highest level and had the careers they've had, does look naturally impressive. They process the right type of knowledge, which is beneficial to a club that is lacking leaders on the pitch, especially one that is in a relegation battle. One thing which struck me recently as I watched Notts play, we tend to be almost one-dimensional and it’s only the senior players who try to overcome this issue. The only exception has been the return of Curtis Thompson, who is a true grafter, yet position-wise, during our own attacks, players are often unsupported and this limits the chances that can be created. Ameobi has gotten stuck in, with another veteran player Mark Yeates currently failing to make any sort of impression for the most part of the minutes in which he has featured. A few good dead balls doesn’t make up for much, yet even he could be a pinnacle player and if Michael O’Connor, Richard Duffy and Robert Milson continue to step up, perhaps it will only be a matter of time for Yeates? I am unsure how much of a part the inexperienced players can play in our survival, Jordan Richards does seem to be a great young player but nowhere near first team standards. However, I am dead certain that the veterans at the club can contribute when it truly matters. The depth looks to be the right balance for survival and I am convinced we have more than enough in order to achieve that. It may be unpopular to suggest seeing Alan Smith, however he can make the odd cameo appearance and provide some real grit in the bulk of midfield. Nolan at this stage must continue to identify the players that can affect and change games, critics may argue that Smith doesn’t have any future as a player. They may argue that Yeates and Jon Stead are both past it, however Notts do look much better with them around. Survival will go down to who is the most prepared, so having a squad which is highly unpredictable, full of experience, and eagerly awaiting youngsters who can make an impact when required. I would hope that the defence, along with Richard Duffy, continues to impress, with Thierry Audel looking all the more like a new signing for the club. It does appear that Nolan does have the right types of headaches when it comes to his selection, with a surprising comeback against Exeter City. It does show that the players are responding to the training and are well aware of the importance these games have on the future of the club.

  6. Mark Yeates has claimed that the next two games for Notts County - both at home - will have a huge bearing on whether the club will survive in League Two or not. The Magpies welcome Cheltenham Town to Meadow Lane at the weekend before hosting Exeter City on Tuesday evening. With Kevin Nolan's side just a point above the bottom two and basement side Newport County having a game in hand which, if won right now, would put them above Notts, Yeates wants his new club to keep up the good work at home. The former Leyton Orient manager has enjoyed an unbeaten start at Meadow Lane since taking over as Magpies boss, having drawn against Mansfield and beating Crawley. "It goes right down to the wire with these things," Yeates told the Nottingham Post. "We are hoping to get a good run of results and put a bit of breathing space between us and other clubs. "It's only February and you don't want to be putting negatives or positives on anything at the moment. "It has to be one game at a time. I know it sounds like a cliché but it has to be like that. "But we've got two home games coming up which I think are going to be massive. If teams are going to win leagues or stay up, then they have to have a good home record."
