  1. Kevin Nolan has admitted he would love to have Mason Bennett back at Notts County, but he has to wait on what new Derby County manager Frank Lampard has in plan for the forward. The Magpies have been continuously linked with re-signing the 21-year-old, whose loan spell at Meadow Lane in January was cut short because of a hamstring injury. “If Frank likes him and wants to keep him around the squad then we won’t have a chance,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I know he was really looking forward to having some time here and that hasn’t changed. “If we get the opportunity and everything is right, then I would be delighted to have him back. “He would push the lads and having him along with Jon Stead, Kristian Dennis and Kane Hemmings would give us four quality strikers.” 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. 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.

  3. Kevin Nolan has claimed that Notts County would be “in a much better place” had Mason Bennett’s loan move from Derby County not been thwarted by injury. The striker joined the Magpies on the last day of the January transfer window but was forced to return to Pride Park after rupturing his hamstring on his first start for the club against Barnet. “You only have to look at the impact Mason had when he came on against Crewe, got his goal and hit the bar,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He gave us something different to what we didn’t have. He is such a quality player and for his injury to happen in his first full start for us was a devastating blow. “If we had him, we would have been in a lot better place because of the quality I would have had at my disposal. “He gave us that lightning pace, and he was clever with it. He could carry the ball too and he was our main target in January. “We had to wait until the final hour to sign him, then a week later he is going back to Derby. “It was incredibly frustrating but that’s gone now. But I still feel we have a good enough squad to achieve what we want. What we’ve got to do is prove it.” 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. Mason Bennett has revealed that he's still in touch with the Notts County players and staff, and has wished them well in their quest to gain promotion from League Two. The Derby County striker had joined the Magpies on loan until the end of the season in January and impressed on his debut off the bench against Crewe Alexandra. Sadly, the move was cut short when he seriously injured his hamstring in his first start for the club at Barnet. “It wasn’t going for me at Derby at that time and I needed to go out and play football,” Bennett told Rams TV. “I remember being on the phone to the gaffer and he said ‘go score me some goals’. To get that goal (against Crewe) was a nice relief. But then I got my first start and that (injury) happened. “But I am still in the WhatsApp group chat and I’ve spoken to the manager there and the staff. They keep asking me how I am doing and when I’m back. “But I hope they do well. I am rooting for them as they are a great bunch of lads. It’s a great club and hopefully they will have promotion at the end of the season.” 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. 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."

  7. Gary Rowett has revealed that Derby County were eager to keep Mason Bennett at the club and also considered sending him to Burton Albion but felt Notts County were able to give him "a big 17 games". The 21-year-old came close to breaking in the Rams first team this term but has been hindered by injury, leading to the Championship club sending him out on loan, with the Magpies recruiting the player on deadline day. "Mason was one we felt we could keep around for the last three months of the season and may be he'd get two or three appearances, but what would we learn about him?" Rowett told the Derby Telegraph. "He has had a really good season in terms of training. He has been really sharp apart from his injury, and so he has made good progress this season but we will only see that progress if Mason goes out and plays games. "We had interest from Burton Albion as well, but we just felt and I think the player just felt that he wanted to go somewhere where he had a chance of playing 17 games and that is what he is going to do at Notts County. He needs that. "It is a big 17 games for him because the reality of the situation is if he does really well in those games then we can probably look at him in a slightly different light because we can see what he can do," Rowett added. "If he doesn't do well, then everybody has to have a good think about whether he can afford a season next season where he is a bit-part player. So it is a good move for him. "We have got four or five players who can play in those wide areas and so we didn't think there was any great need to deny Mason that opportunity to go out on loan."

  10. I realise that the deadline day signings have split fans' opinions, we can debate how good they appear on paper or discuss their careers so far, but the important part is to welcome any new signing into the club and hope that they can help us. Notts have fought hard this season and we have seen such a huge turnaround that even now I find it hard to believe. The club right now is experiencing a fresh start and we now have the right kind of foundations in place. Success on the pitch is often measured in quality, but also desire and I think our club has the right type of balance – although I do openly admit I had hoped for a permanent striker to sign. This said, I feel in League Two Mason Bennett does offer us something which we don’t really have and that his pace could be the thing which ignites us on the pitch - as a signing he should naturally take the burden off the midfield to score goals. It’s also important after Exeter City’s midweek win that we get back on track ourselves, as I feel the wheelbarrow doesn’t need to break just yet – this is more optimism and hope mind. Crewe Alexandra are the perfect team for us to be playing right now, especially since the great performance we put in against Swansea City in the FA Cup. That said, we need to match that performance and even attempt to outplay it. The Alex won’t be an easy pushover despite their league position, not at all and I think the fact that they play some decent ground football should test Notts. Yet their poor form is also a beneficial factor for us, as we could go into the game respectful yet be confident at the same time. On paper people will naturally think it should be easy, yet football is never straightforward and, as Notts fans, we only know too well what it’s like playing an underperforming side. The 2017-18 squad is completely different compared to previous squads and I feel they will want to see the success continue – I certainly believe they will show a lot of character as we fight for our finishing place. There’s just that underlining question of formation and, I hope after Kevin Nolan’s seen how useful it is – reverting back to it against Swansea, that he will see it makes sense to continue using 4-4-2 within the league. We would be stronger, much stronger sticking with a formation that we know inside-and-out. I fully expect Nolan to choose 4-4-2, I think he will see that the two league defeats weren’t down to much else – yet with the inclusions of our new signings, we should be stronger up top and at the back. Notts really need to put a convincing showing on Saturday, we need to forget about the attendance and just rise to the task of getting back on track. The amount of fans or potential fans shouldn’t be daunting and, if we get behind the lads – singing them on. With the Kop fully behind the game, I feel we will find our form – it’s time to start believing! COYP!!

  11. Mason Bennett has outlined his intention to help Notts County achieve promotion from League Two and get himself a winner's medal. The 21-year-old completed a loan move from Derby County to Meadow Lane on Wednesday night, the switch officially confirmed by the Magpies after the 11pm transfer window deadline. Bennett is expected to go straight into the Notts squad for Saturday's home game with Crewe Alexandra as the hosts seek to remain in the top three. "I'm delighted to get the move done because it's been going on for a couple of weeks now,” Bennett told the Nottingham Post. "I made sure I got up early so that I was ready if I received a call in the morning so there was a lot of waiting around, but I'm anxious to get going and delighted to be here. "It's a great club and a massive club which is going in the right direction and I want to help it push in to League One. “The manager is great and he's as delighted to have me here as I am to be here. I want to make a great impact for the team and help them push on to win promotion. “It's a great challenge for me. I've been in the Championship and League One and now I want to come down to League Two and try to get a medal here too. “I want to help the team fight for promotion. That is the main goal and that is why I am here. There are a lot of games to play so if I can get a couple of goals then that will be a huge plus.” 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 declared himself pleased with Notts County's business in the January transfer window. The Magpies bolstered their ranks with the acquisitions of Matty Virtue, Noor Husin, Ben Hall and Mason Bennett, while Liam Noble could finally be registered after joining late last year. In adding a centre-back and a forward, two areas which were in need of strengthening have now been duly reinforced, while Ryan Yates's untimely recall is now no longer a worry with three new midfielders able to turn out for Notts. "I'm delighted with the business we have done. A lot of it was done early and those lads have had a couple of weeks to settle in," Nolan told the official Notts site. "I feel we have come out of the window with a stronger squad because we have brought in a lot of youth to blend with the OAP squad, as people keep calling us! "To get the two lads we wanted on the final day, which went right to the wire, was great. We have different types of players in each position, which is going to give me a selection headache." Speaking about deadline day signing Hall, Nolan said: "We spoke to a lot of people who have worked with Ben and we're delighted to get him. He has had good experience in Scotland with Motherwell and he is a confident lad. We want him to push Duffy and Brisley to new heights." Bennett, meanwhile, was formally announced half an hour after the window closed, and the gaffer added: "Mason has turned down good opportunities to go elsewhere because we are the club he wanted to move forward with. I'm delighted he has chosen us and I hope we can progress his career. "You only have to look at him to see he's an athlete but we're not putting any extra pressure on him, we need to let him get on with his football and that is the most important thing. "He has got every attribute to be a top player with the way he glides past people and his running in behind and we have to try and nurture that and get it out of him. He's a real handful because of his pace but he is also very clever on the ball. He will bring a lot and we are excited to be working with him."

  14. Notts County have announced the loan signing of Derby County forward Mason Bennett until the end of the season. The 21-year-old, who made his first-team debut for the Rams at the age of 15 to become the club's youngest-ever player, was snapped up late on transfer deadline day. Bennett has played six times for the Derby's team this season, including the recent FA Cup third-round defeat at Manchester United. However, his progress this season at Pride Park has been hindered by injury, his first start under Gary Rowett against Brentford in September ending in ligament damage. A forward who can also operate out wide, Bennett spent time with Chesterfield during their League Two title-winning season in 2013-14 and at Burton Albion in 2014-15, when they also won promotion. "I'm delighted to get it over the line because it's been going on for a couple of weeks now," Bennett told the official Notts site. "It went down to the last day and fortunately we have got it done. "This is a great club and a massive club which is going in the right direction and I want to help it push into League One. "The manager knows what I can do on and off the ball. He wants me to come in and give the team something a bit different to what they have already. I'm here to gain more experience and make an impact."
