  1. Yesterday whilst appearing as a guest on BBC Nottingham’s Match Talk, I was asked the question by David Jackson - "is it time to believe in promotion yet?" It’s a question which I have asked fans myself, and it's one which the majority seem unsure how to answer. Myself, I always remain optimistic about any season, especially as the table is still taking shape - but the 2017-18 season does seem special. I also recall a discussion that was started by PON member Liampie which asked “Should we avoid getting carried away?” At the time I felt similar, although I would say I was more quietly optimistic. I could already sense a ‘positive vibe’ around Meadow Lane that just felt that season could be very different, I always tend to warn caution to the fans I know – yet it’s difficult when things are going in your favour for once to play down the fact Notts could gain promotion. It’s still very early days within League Two, however I do believe we as supporters should try to really get behind the team. In our match against Lincoln City, it was brilliant to see so many fans being vocal about encouraging the Kop to sing and once the home support had silenced the away end (the opposition fans didn’t really do much did they?) – it was one of the most enjoyable experiences that I had had in a number of seasons. Not just purely because our lads controlled the second half well, or due to Lincoln continuing to try to get something from the match – despite all hopes. It was more so because everyone around me - and I moved around the Kop as I watched the game - was fully enjoying themselves and I honestly feel it made a huge impact on the way that Notts played. It’s also good to see that we have a bench made up of players who could start regularly and the fact we have a manager who can make several changes now that he knows who forms the best starting 11. Another point made by David Jackson was the amount of luck which we had, as any fan will know we have had a tendency to attract opposite previous seasons. Yet the striking difference this term is how hard-working we are as a team, this was visual against Swindon Town – a game which the majority felt we didn’t quite have the power to shrug them off, but we did manage to keep them mostly quiet. I felt extremely proud during that game, as for once it seemed like we had a team which would protect the lead at all cost. A team that would run, scrap and work hard for their manager. It’s still very early days, and I would echo the discussion myself and Joe Jones had in the latest Pride of Nottingham PONcast – things can change differently, yet whilst the squad works hard and puts in those determined performances – no matter what happens on the pitch, we will always be better off, and I think that is the prime example of what we have witnessed so far during the 2017-18 season. Kevin Nolan has done a fantastic job keeping the players focused, he takes things game-by-game. The Exeter win will have instilled further hope and ambition within my fellow supporters. However, let’s make this season less about luck and more about the passionate, free-fighting squad that gets the right results.

  5. Notts County have climbed to the top of League Two thanks to an emphatic 4-1 win against 10-man Lincoln City. The Magpies enjoyed a numerical advantage for a large chunk of the game after the Imps had Billy Knott sent off for a high boot on Ryan Yates in the 28th minute. Notts then went ahead before the break when a Jon Stead volley took a deflection and spun into the corner of the net. Lincoln hauled themselves level early in the second half through Harry Anderson’s looping header, but Matt Tootle rifled in a stunning second to restore the Magpies’ advantage after 55 minutes. Jorge Grant’s superb free-kick put County firmly in control and Terry Hawkridge wrapped up the points two minutes from time. Pride of Nottingham spoke to a number of Notts County fans at Meadow Lane before the game. We asked them a few questions, including who their unsung hero is so far this season, how crucial Kevin Nolan's contract extension is, and whether an early closure to the summer transfer window is good or bad.

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 Jorge Grant's stunning free kick made it 3-1.

  8. Terry Hawkridge has echoed Kevin Nolan's sentiments in hailing Notts County's 4-1 win over Lincoln City as a display of a team at the top of their game. The Magpies took the lead in the 39th minute through Jon Stead and, even though Harry Anderson grabbed an equaliser for the Imps, further goals from Matt Tootle, Jorge Grant and Hawkridge sealed an impressive win in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. "We knew it was going to be a tough game because Lincoln are a good team," Hawkridge told the official Notts website. "We showed our class in the second half and got the goals we needed. "We used the sending off to our strengths and we moved the ball well in the second half. We tired them out and the goals came. "They were all good goals. For a right back, it's a great finish from Toots and Jorge probably shouldn't be scoring a free-kick from there but he's put it right in the top corner! Steady's was a good finish, too. "It's a good win but it's still early doors and we have to now focus on the Exeter game on Tuesday night. "It's going well but we're only nine games into the season. We have a long way to go and we just need to keep building on what we've been doing."

  11. Kevin Nolan has reiterated the importance of making Meadow Lane a difficult place for opponents to come to when they play Notts County. The club's home dressing room has been the subject of much press coverage in recent months following Alan Hardy's investment in the facilities. The away dressing rooms have also gained some coverage, albeit more on the negative side, when Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman said his side had to change "in a corridor". Nolan spoke of how, as Leyton orient player-manager, he found it very comfortable, and did not want that to be the case on his watch as Magpies manager. “I take pride in the fact that this (Meadow Lane) is our home,” he told the Nottingham Post. “We don’t want anybody to come and enjoy being here. “I always thought it was very comfortable for teams playing here before I arrived. I certainly found that when I came here last time with Leyton Orient. “It’s one of the best stadiums in the league and shouldn’t be at this level given the history and so on. “But teams used to love coming here because of the fantastic pitch and the fact it’s a lovely ground. “They had a nice dressing room, but I haven’t changed it around for the opposition, I’ve changed it because it helps us. “We now have a bootroom which we can utilise and means we can put stuff away whereas before it was out in corridors. “Now we have a store and a lock-up. I am not trying to be hospitable. I will try to be nice to people, but ultimately it’s game day.” 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.

  16. Notts County have met Swindon Town on 63 occasions, the first time being 103 years ago in the FA Cup. On that day in January 1911, the Robins beat the Magpies 2-0 at the County Ground. Of the 63 clashes, 24 have been won by Notts, 27 by Swindon, and 12 have been drawn. The last meeting between the two was on 7 March 2015, away at the County Ground, and the Robins ran out 3-0 winners. The club was founded in 1879 by Reverend William Baker Pitt. Whilst curate of Christ Church, the high church of Swindon, Pitt formed Swindon Association Football Club to provide recreation for young men in his parish. Swindon won the Southern League championship in 1910-11, earning themselves a Charity Shield clash with Football League champions Manchester United. This, the highest-scoring Charity Shield game to date, was played on 25 September 1911 at Stamford Bridge with Manchester United winning 8–4! Some of the proceeds of this game were later donated to the survivors of the Titanic. During World War II, The War Department – the government body responsible for the supply of equipment to the armed forces in the UK – took over the County Ground in 1940. For a while, prisoners of war were housed in huts placed on the pitch. For this, the club received compensation of £4,570 at war’s end. Swindon Town were the first League club to use floodlights, having had them installed in 1951. The County Ground is also the only football stadium in the world with a Rolex watch acting as its timekeeper –the clock on the Stratton Bank stand featuring its name was erected to celebrate promotion in 1963. Swindon have spent one season in the top flight, in 1992-93, during which Glenn Hoddle managed them. Sadly, they didn't do too well, being relegated at the end of the season after conceding 100 goals. The most notable silverware in the Robins’ possession is undoubtedly the League Cup, won in 1969 after beating Arsenal in the final at Wembley. Royle Family and Two Pints Of Lager actor Ralf Little was rumoured to be on trial at Swindon back in 2002, though the funnyman later claimed that he was just training with the squad. Pint-sized jazz singer Jamie Cullum is also a fan of the Robins. Team news Shola Ameobi will miss Notts County's home game against Swindon after picking up a hamstring injury that forced him off after 41 minutes of Saturday's 2-0 victory over Morecambe. Jonathan Forte came on for Ameobi at the weekend and he is expected to make his first league start of the season after scoring his side's second goal against the Shrimps. Notts boss Kevin Nolan has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from as he looks to extend his side's unbeaten run to eight matches. Swindon manager David Flitcroft could name an unchanged starting line-up following a 3-0 away win over Luton Town on Saturday. John Goddard and Kyle Knoyle remain absent through injury, although the latter is expected to resume full training this week. Donal McDermott will serve the second game of the three-match ban he received for his red card against Barnet earlier this month.

  19. Notts County have climbed to third in League Two and stretched their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions following Saturday's 2-0 win over Morecambe. Meadow Lane was the venue as the Black and White army saw their beloved side face an opponent that had build up a reputation as a bogey team over Notts in recent years. Dan Jones opened the scoring for the Magpies at Meadow Lane with a 27th-minute free kick which was curled expertly round the Shrimps wall and beyond goalkeeper Barry Roche. Morecambe launched a fightback following the restart but their efforts were to no avail as Notts struck late on through substitute Jonathan Forte as he broke through and rifled home via the inside of the post.
