  1. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. The Magpies considerably strengthened their ranks over the summer with several high-profile signings rocking up at the club so the hope was of hitting the ground running against somewhat mediocre opposition. It didn't go that way though, with both sides looking rusty in the first League Two game of the campaign, and the outcome was a share of the spoils and a clean sheet apiece. Nathan Thomas came close when he controlled on the edge of the
  2. Notts County were robbed of victory at Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena as Kevin Nolan’s men had to settle for a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final. The Magpies led through Jonathan Forte’s deft second-half finish and looked on course to record a morale-boosting victory to put them in pole position for Wembley. However, "referee" Gavin Ward incorrectly adjudged Matt Tootle to have felled Tom Bayliss in the area and awarded a penalty to the hosts much to the disbelief of the Notts contingent. Marc McNulty stroked home the spotkick, sending Adam Collin the
  3. Notts County threw away the chance of making the top three in League Two with one game to spare after falling to a 2-1 defeat at Grimsby Town on Saturday afternoon. The Magpies laboured at Blundell Park and fell behind through Nathan Clarke's first-half strike. Kevin Nolan's side then looked to have secured a point as Dan Jones stabbed home with only a minute left on the clock. However, the Mariners were not to be denied and substitute Jamille Matt headed a winner in the third of five added minutes to slam the door firmly shut on County's top-three ambitions. With third-pla
  4. Notts County secured a spot in the League Two playoffs thanks to Saturday's resounding 4-1 win over Yeovil Town at Meadow Lane. In addition, victory took the Magpies to within two points of third-placed Wycombe Wanderers - who lost 3-0 at Accrington Stanley - with two games left to play. A superb own goal from Tom James and strikes from Elliott Hewitt and Lewis Alessandra added to Dan Jones's opener late in the first half, though Alex Fisher netted in injury time for the Glovers. Here is some of the post-match reaction from the game at the San Sirrel. Kevin Nolan “I th
  5. Notts County have taken another giant step towards sealing a League Two playoff place with a 3-1 win at Colchester United. The U's had taken the lead after just nine minutes through Drey Wright at the Weston Homes Community Stadium before John McGreal’s side hit the post early after the break. However, the Magpies stormed back in the second half as Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy sealed a memorable comeback for Kevin Nolan's side. Tom Eastman hit the post for Colchester but Notts hung on to claim a comeback victory that sees them sit four points off the automatic
  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 have missed out on the chance to gain ground on the top three in League Two as they were held to a goalless draw by Wycombe Wanderers in Good Friday's match at Meadow Lane. The Chairboys came to NG2 very much intent on leaving with a point and the Magpies could not break their defence down in an uninspiring, rain-sodden encounter which saw Kevin Nolan sent to the stands by referee Ben Toner. How did the Notts contingent react to the events in the game and the result? Here is a collection of post-match reaction from Pride of Nottingham. Kevin Nolan (official Notts si
  8. Notts County's promotion hopes suffered another blow as League Two strugglers Chesterfield ran out 3-1 winners in Sunday's encounter at the Proact Stadium. The hosts took the lead on 16 minutes Andy Kellett's corner was touched on by Drew Talbot and Sid Nelson chested the ball past Magpies goalkeeper Adam Collin from point-blank range. Elliott Hewitt then missed a sitter before the Spireites doubled their lead through a poor clearance that was rifled home by Zavon Hines. Notts huffed and puffed and laboured throughout the early afternoon but they put themselves within a goal of
  9. Notts County were pegged back eight minutes into injury time as Mansfield Town's late, late penalty saw them leave Meadow Lane with a point in a 1-1 draw. The Magpies were on the verge of recording a first league win over the Stags since 2005 in front of a bumper crowd that braved the snowy, cold, treacherous conditions at the San Sirrel. Kevin Nolan's boys took the lead in the first half through Terry Hawkridge bundling home, but the Stags were given the chance to equalise eight minutes into the seven minutes of added time at the end of the game. Alex MacDonald headed into the
  10. Notts County secured a hard-fought 2-1 win over Forest Green Rovers on Saturday to keep them third in the League Two table. Liam Noble returned to haunt his former club, of which he was captain, with the opener for the Magpies after 34 minutes played at the New Lawn. Lewis Alessandra was brought down in the FGR box but the referee opted to play the advantage, which resulted in Noble rifling home before celebrating avidly in front of the Green Devils fans Although Tahvon Campbell - also playing against his former club - equalised in the second half, Matt Tootle had the final say
  11. Notts County have got back on track in their League Two promotion tilt as Jorge Grant and Shola Ameobi scored to help secure a 2-0 win over Stevenage on Saturday. A gritty encounter at Meadow Lane saw the deadlock broken in the 77th minute as Grant rifled a volley into the bottom corner after the visitors had struggled to deal with a ball into the box. Ameobi then doubled the lead shortly afterwards when he bravely prodded in a header from Ben Hall to put the Magpies in control. The goals were enough to seal an important win for the Magpies, who are still in the thick of the pro
  12. Notts County have suffered another huge blow in their automatic promotion hopes as Cambridge United ran out 1-0 winners in their League Two clash at the Abbey Stadium. Medy Elito scored the winner for the hosts in the 30th minute to continue their good form since the departure of manager Shaun Derry with a third win in a row, while for Notts it's a fourth league defeat in 2018. What was the reaction to the match from Kevin Nolan and from the Black and White Army? Pride of Nottingham takes a closer look. Kevin Nolan "I'm deeply disappointed because I thought we were starting
  13. Notts County were held to a goalless draw in Saturday's League Two match away at Newport County. The Magpies were forced to settle for a share of the spoils at Rodney Parade in a game of few clear-cut chances. Notts were more dangerous than their opponents, with Lewis Alessandra and Jon Stead both going close, but neither side could find a breakthrough in South Wales. Here is a compilation from the key post-match reaction from boss Kevin Nolan, defender Carl Dickinson, and as always the Black & White Army commenting on Pride of Nottingham! Kevin Nolan "You have to
  14. Notts County have bounced back from their horror week with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Carlisle United on Tuesday night. Jon Stead put the Magpies ahead in the 19th minute when he collected a pass from Lewis Alessandra and fired a goalward effort which hit Cumbrians goalkeeper Jack Bonham and looped into the net. The veteran striker then doubled County's lead in the 35th minute when he reacted quickest during an almighty goalmouth scramble. Carlisle went on to make it a nervy finish through a deflected Jamie Devitt strike after the break and an inexplicable seven minutes of injur
  15. Notts County's FA Cup journey ended on a sour note as Swansea City ran out 8-1 winners in their FA Cup fourth-round replay at the Liberty Stadium. Tammy Abraham and Nathan Dyer grabbed braces, while Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge, Tom Carroll and Daniel James all scored one apiece as Noor Husin's impressive 35th-minute strike proved a scant consolation. How did the Kevin Nolan, the Notts players and the fans react to the result? Pride of Nottingham has compiled the post-match reaction. Kevin Nolan "When you come to these clubs you have to hope for a bit of luck and that the
  16. Notts County put in arguably one of the worst performances of the season on Saturday as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Barnet. The League Two's basement side more than matched their opponents for the majority of the game at the Hive Stadium before grabbing the winner in injury time. A lump upfield by goalkeeper Craig Ross bounced kindly for Alex Nicholls, who raced onto the ball, got the better of his markets and lashed home past Adam Collin to give the Bees all three points. The result leaves the Magpies fourth in the table, two points behind third-placed Wycombe Wanderers and ju
  17. Notts County came from a goal down to record a superb 4-1 win over Crewe Alexandra in Saturday's League Two encounter at a packed Meadow Lane. In front of a bumper crowd of more than 17,000 thanks to Alan Hardy's "2 for Crewe" offer, the Magpies fell behind to Shaun Miller's goal on the rebound. However, Notts were level seven minutes later when Noor Husin rifled home in a stunning drive from all of 25 yards out. Elliott Hewitt put the hosts ahead just before half time before adding a second on the hour, before Derby County loanee Mason Bennett scored on his debut to cap off a m
  18. Jon Stead kept up his record of scoring in every round of the FA Cup as his equaliser earned Notts County a deserved replay in a 1-1 draw with Swansea City in the fourth round. Luciano Narsingh's strike on the stroke of half-time put the Premier League's bottom club ahead at Meadow Lane but the Magpies went up a gear after the restart, with Jorge Grant coming close on three occasions in quick succession. Stead, who famously put in a superb performance for Bradford City in their fourth-round upset of Chelsea several years ago, then fired home on the hour mark to guarantee a place in t
  19. Notts County have fallen to a second League Two home defeat in a row after Crawley Town won 2-1 at Meadow Lane on Tuesday night. Jimmy Smith scored in the 25th minute to give the Red Devils the lead but Jon Stead levelled from the penalty spot 13 minutes in the second half. It looked as though the Magpies would claim a point but late drama saw Matty Virtue sent off before Ross Fitzsimons also saw red - and conceded a penalty - for kicking out at an opposition player. Josh Payne went on to convert his stoppage-time spot kick for their first ever win at Meadow Lane and leave Notts
  20. Notts County lost their unbeaten home league record as Exeter City secured a 2-1 victory at Meadow Lane. First-half goals from Jake Taylor and Jayden Stockley gave the promotion-chasing Grecians a two-goal advantage. Although Jon Stead scored a penalty, the Magpies could not go on to find an equaliser The result means that Notts have tasted their first defeat in the league in front of their own fans since Portsmouth won last April. What was the reaction from the Notts boss, players and fans following the draw? Here is a collection of the best post-match reaction. Kevin
  21. Notts County remain well in the hunt for an automatic promotion place thanks to a 2-2 draw at Lincoln City on Saturday. The Magpies took the lead after 35 minutes when a clipped pass from Lewis Alessandra was headed home by Jon Stead. Lee Frecklington, who returned to the Imps from Rotherham this week, fired in an equaliser two minutes later to head back in the changing rooms all square. The Magpies then fell behind after 67 minutes when Matt Green slotted home but Jorge Grant crashed in a shot off the underside of the crossbar for a share of the spoils. What was the reacti
  22. Notts County earned a place in the hat for the fourth round of the FA Cup after beating Championship side Brentford 1-0 in Saturday's third-round encounter at Griffin Park. Despite playing two divisions above, the Bees were put to the sword as Jon Stead's superb second-half winner sealed the Magpies' passage to the fourth round of the competition. The draw for the next round will take place on Monday evening, with the possibility of a leading Premier League side being lined up to face Kevin Nolan's high-flyers. What was the reaction from the Notts boss, players and fans followin
  23. Notts County kept up the pressure on League Two leaders Luton Town with a 1-0 win over Port Vale at Meadow Lane on New Year's Day. The encounter was settled by Jon Stead's penalty, awarded after the veteran striker was fouled in the box by defender Marcus Harness. Prior to their late spot kick, Kevin Nolan's side found themselves denied several key refereeing decisions, while Vale's Ryan Boot was the busier of the two goalkeepers. County's win over the Valiants puts them on 50 points, four behind table toppers Luton Town - who beat Lincoln City 4-2 - and seven clear of fourth pl
  24. Notts County have ended 2017 on a sour note as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Swindon Town on Saturday. In a game of few chances, the Robins broke the deadlock shortly after the restart when Luke Norris drilled home Keshi Anderson’s low cross. Notts came close to an equaliser in the dying stages of the game when Dan Jones saw a header tipped over the bar by Reice Charles-Cook, but it wasn't to be. How did the fans react to the defeat and what did the gaffer have to say? Here is a compilation of the key post-match reaction on Pride of Nottingham. Kevin Nolan “It was
  25. Notts County remain nicely placed in the top three of the League Two table thanks to a 4-1 win over Morecambe on Boxing Day. The Magpies struck first when Adam Campbell gave the ball away in his own half, culminating in Lewis Alessandra cutting the ball back for Jorge Grant to rifle home. Alessandra then turned scorer when a long punt upfield from goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons was headed down for the winger to drive into the net on the half-volley. In the second half, Grant exchanged passes with Jon Stead before sliding the ball past Barry Roche for goal number three and a brace fo
