  1. Kevin Nolan has praised Dan Jones for his impressive performances in the last two Notts County games, describing his game against Morecambe as on "another level". The summer signing was pilloried for his mistakes in the League Two opener at Coventry City, where the hosts put three unanswered goals past the Magpies. Since then, however, Notts have steadily improved and now sit third in the table, boasting a six-match unbeaten run in all competitions. Jones has also come along nicely since his poor debut and went on to open the scoring on Saturday against the Shrimps with a well taken free kick, helping the Magpies run out 2-0 winners. Nolan told the Nottingham Post: “The best thing for me is this is a game when players can prove people wrong. We’ve showed our trust in Dan and he’s been massive for us. “He’s got somebody in Carl Dickinson who is pushing him all the way for the number one spot. Dan has it at the minute, but he’s got an able replacement if it’s not working. “Everybody at Coventry wasn’t at the standard they are capable of and everybody had a massive opinion on what I was doing or how I was going about it. “But people can see that working with the players week in, week out, collectively, individually and in the classroom is paying off. “It’s working for Dan, I was delighted with Dan. He was fantastic against Port Vale, but stepped it up another level. He capped it off with a fantastic free kick as well.” 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. Notts County have climbed to third in League Two and stretched their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions following a 2-0 win over Morecambe. 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 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. In this piece, Chris has taken an in-depth look at how both sides played, whether the result was fair, and how to move forward. Was the result fair? The result was about right for me, Morecambe didn’t look much of a threat on goal and struggled to get a grip on the game. Notts passed nicely at times, created chances and always looked to get forward. How did Notts play? It wasn’t a "wow" performance, yet the team spirit again shined and there were several occasions where pieces of play really did entertain us fans. I think we needed to be slightly more direct, along with taking our time when shooting but overall it was a very decent performance. How did Morecambe play? Morecambe really struggled, defensively they were quite poor and I felt if Notts created better chances they would have been finished off early. Their midfield wasn’t able to get hold of the game, nor could they change the tempo. This in turn isolated their attack, so it was a typical disconnected performance by a team clearly struggling to get their season going. Did our tactics work out? Honestly, I felt that we needed to change things before the game. Make a simple adjustment to the midfield by allowing Rob Milsom to start and perhaps the tweak we all have been wanting up front. The tactics weren’t bad, I just felt it was somewhat flat but it allowed us to control the game and so to a degree it worked. If Morecambe had been more of a threat or the physical team we know they can be – this could have been different, but the balance was about right for us. How did the referee perform? I can still hear his whistle, his repeated blowing and lack of control really frustrated me at times. However, I don’t think it had any sort of impact on the game and again I find myself thinking in hindsight that he was just another poor League Two referee. Who do we play next? Swindon Town – a team still getting to grips with life back in League Two, although they’re heavily tipped for a return to League One and have several good players. This will be a tougher game on Tuesday for Notts! How should we play them? Notts needs to be able to cope with any pace they have, the right-hand side of the defence for me is a concern if Matt Tootle doesn’t start. I think Swindon will know that they have a chance to influence the game by using the flanks so defensively we have to stand tall – whilst ensuring we force them back into the centre of the park. I would like to see Notts try to hold the ball up, perhaps push Jorge Grant a little forward and let him sit behind whoever starts up front. Kevin Nolan could perhaps justify reverting to one striker, however I think it might limit our chances – yet it would offer Notts more bulk in the centre of the park where it matters. This would allow us to pass the ball around, whilst offering protection to the defence. We can’t just sit back and defend however, we must pass the ball and look to maximise the set pieces that we get.

  4. Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has given his views on his side's encounter with a "big, experienced" Notts County side on Saturday, which ended in a 2-0 defeat for the Shrimps. Meadow Lane was the venue as the Black and White army saw the Magpies 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 hosts with a 27th-minute free kick which was curled expertly round the Morecambe wall and beyond goalkeeper Barry Roche. The visitors 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. Bentley said to the Lancashire Evening Post: “This was always going to be a difficult game against a big, experienced side and our football was good at times but we just fell a bit short in the final third. “We did get in a couple of times in the first half but we didn’t take our chances and that proved vital in the end. “We should have scored from a well-worked corner and then the first time they had a shot on goal their scored from a great free kick and we were up against it again."

  5. Notts County have climbed to third in League Two and stretched their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions following a 2-0 win over Morecambe. 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 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. Here is some of the reaction from some of the Notts players, the manager, and the Black and White Army. Kevin Nolan "It was a lot better than last week's performance. I thought we dominated throughout. "The lads were magnificent. They followed up a hard-fought win last week with another top performance and clean sheet today. "As a defensive unit I feel we had to get better from last year. We were leaking goals from here, there and everywhere and now we look like a really good, solid unit. "It was a great all-round performance and I'm absolutely delighed. We're on a decent run now but the games come thick and fast. "We've got another tough one on Tuesday night so we're looking forward to that." Ryan Yates Jorge Grant Adam Collin The fans (from PON's Morecambe match discussion) Chris "I thought Notts played quite well, in spells we really dominated the play but without a few things going our way - this really would have been a draw. "Morecambe was very poor, I thought they would be more aggressive and physical but they only changed once the free-kick had gone in. To be fair, they allowed us to have more time on the ball by using three men to mark players like Jorge Grant. I agree that our football wasn't pretty at times, yet it's very good progress on the back of a very poor season last year and the promising signs are that it's improving. "The injury to Shola Ameobi was a massive blow, though Jonathan Forte has proven that he can come in and score. "The team spirit shined during the period whereby Morecambe threatened, though I must say Duffy looks the weak link in defence and his rushing of the play was very frustrating." Liampie "It was sad to see people leaving around the 75th minute mark moaning about how poor the game was, i thought notts played quite well but lacked fire power and we really did miss shola in the squad half. Second goal people became more cheerful. Good performance and win for me."

  7. Notts County have stretched their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions following Saturday's 2-0 win over Morecambe at Meadow Lane. The Magpies bossed the first half and deservedly took the lead as defender Dan Jones curled in a superb free kick on 27 minutes. Although the Shrimps shuffled things round at the break and were more dangerous in the second half, they were unable to make headway in terms of grabbing an equaliser. Indeed, Notts went on to seal the victory through Jonathan Forte, who raced clean through on goal and slotted beyond Barry Roche. Pride of Nottingham was at the Lane to watch the fantastic win, which elevated the Magpies to third in the League Two table, and spoke to a number of fans prior to the game.

  11. Goals from Dan Jones and substitute Jonathan Forte stretched Notts County's unbeaten run to six games as they beat Morecambe 2-0 at Meadow Lane on Saturday afternoon. The Magpies defender opened the scoring midway through the first half with a well taken free kick which left Shrimps goalkeeper Barry Roche grasping at thin air. Morecambe mounted a fightback in the second half but striker Forte eventually wrapped up the win as he steered in via the inside of the post late on. It was no more than the hosts deserved for a solid performance which maintained their excellent start to the season under boss Kevin Nolan.

  12. Kevin Nolan has described his Notts County players as "magnificent" as they sealed a 2-0 win over Morecambe in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. Dan Jones opened the scoring midway through the first half with a well-taken free kick, while substitute Jonathan Forte made sure of all three points with a late strike. The result sees the Magpies climb to third in the table and stretches their unbeaten run in all competitions to six games, but Nolan is eager for his side to regroup ahead of Tuesday night's clash with Swindon Town. "It was a lot better than last week's performance [at Port Vale]," Nolan told the official website. "I thought we dominated throughout. "The lads were magnificent. They followed up a hard-fought win last week with another top performance and clean sheet today. "As a defensive unit I feel we had to get better from last year.

  13. Notts County have stretched their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions following Saturday's 2-0 victory against Morecambe at Meadow Lane. The Magpies were quick out of the starting blocks in the League Two encounter, with Shola Ameobi heading wide from a Dan Jones corner early on. Kevin Nolan's charges continued to impress with Jon Stead, Terry Hawkridge and Ameobi all weighing in with chances, while at the other end, the unmarked Steven Old headed straight at Adam Collin from a corner kick. However, County's efforts were rewarded in the 27th minute when Ameobi won a free kick not far from the Morecambe box, and Jones curled his set piece over the wall and into the top corner of the net. The visitors made changes at the break and soon enjoyed a dominant spell but struggled to carve out any decent opportunities. Shaun Brisley nearly doubled County's lead when his header from a corner landed on the roof of the net on 66 minutes. Collin remained untested in the home goal with the Shrimps’ only effort being a Garry Thompson shot on the turn that skewed well wide of the Magpies’ goal. Eventually Notts found a killer second and it came courtesy of Jonathan Forte, who got behind Aaron McGowan for a free run on goal which ended with a perfectly placed shot to beat Barry Roche from a tight angle. Jorge Grant then had a chance to make it three with a free kick from the edge of the area but could only curl the ball over the woodwork. Morecambe pressed for a late consolation goal and Collin was forced to save well from Thompson and Elliot Osborne in injury time but Nolan's boys managed to hold on for all three points.

  14. Kevin Nolan wants Notts County to continue their good form at home and continue building Meadow Lane up as a fortress as they prepare to host Morecambe this weekend. The Magpies are flying high in League Two after putting their opening-day 3-0 defeat at Coventry City behind them, and currently boast a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions. Morecambe, however, have proven a bogey team for Notts in recent games, which include two 4-1 wins over the Magpies. Nolan told the official Notts website: "They've had two good away draws in the last couple of games and they put us to the sword twice last year, playing really well on both occasions. "You can never take anyone for granted. This is going to be a tough game. We've got a returning Adam Campbell who's going to want to prove himself and Kevin Ellison is a nuisance all game. "We're not in for an easy ride. We're going to have to be patient." Meanwhile, the Nottingham Post quotes him as saying: “Teams will come here and respect what we have done. "That’s a credit to our lads and what they have achieved. What they have to do is ensure they don’t let teams off. “They have to put them on the back foot, and keep dominating. We want to keep Meadow Lane a fortress and we want teams to fear coming here. “And when they’ve left we want them to say ‘we are glad we aren’t going there again’. That’s what we want to create, and bit by bit we are getting there.” 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.

  15. Notts County and Morecambe have met just 10 times in their history, with the first ever clash taking place 10 years ago, in September 2007. On that day, it ended as a 1-1 draw, Michael Twiss putting the visitors ahead at Meadow Lane in the first half, before the late Richard Butcher equalised in the 87th minute. The Shrimpers are considerably ahead in the head-to-head, with Notts having lost to them five times, beaten them twice, and drawn thrice. This fixture has yielded a scoreline of 4-1 three times already - once in our favour and twice in Morecambe's (including our last meeting with them, last season at Meadow Lane). Worth a punt for a 4-1 home win tomorrow? The fixture on 19 September 2009 was former Arsenal and England legend Sol Campbell's only game in a Magpies shirt, while the rematch later in the season, on 17 April 2010, is when Notts mathematically secured promotion to League One. Football in the town dates back to the turn of the 20th century; however, it was not until 7 May 1920 that Morecambe FC was formed. The club then took its place in the Lancashire Combination League for the 1920–21 season. The fourteen years from 1960 could be said to be Morecambe's golden era. This included an FA Cup third round appearance in 1961–62, a 1–0 defeat to Weymouth; a Lancashire Senior Cup Final victory in 1968, a 2–1 win over Burnley; and an FA Trophy success at Wembley in 1974, a 2–1 win over Dartford in the final. Morecambe, a non-league side for most of their history, were promoted to the Football League for the first time in 2007 after winning the Conference Playoff Final, beating Exeter City 2–1 at Wembley in front of over 40,000 fans. Morecambe was a thriving seaside resort in the mid-20th century. While the resort of Blackpool attracted holiday-makers predominantly from the Lancashire mill towns, Morecambe had more visitors from Yorkshire, due to its railway connection, and Scotland. Between 1956 and 1989 Morecambe was the home of the Miss Great Britain beauty contest. Team news Matt Tootle is back from suspension after serving a one-match ban as Notts County look to stretch their unbeaten run to five in League Two (six in all competitions). Rob Milsom, Jonathan Forte and Lewis Alessandra, who scored the winning goal at Port Vale, will be pushing for starting places. Shaun Brisley was taken off at Vale Park folowing a blow to the head but Magpies boss Kevin Nolan is hoping he will be able to slot back into the starting XI alongside centre-back partner Richard Duffy. Morecambe striker - and former Notts loanee - Vadaine Oliver begins a three-match ban for his straight red card against Accrington Stanley. Kevin Ellison is likely to take the summer signing's place after he came off the bench to open his account for the season in the 2-1 defeat. Season-long loan signing Callum Lang could make his first start for the Shrimps after a substitute appearance. Alex Kenyon, currently sidelined through injury, looks unlikely to be back for the game.

  16. Notts County are flying high at the minute, currently unbeaten in five in all competitions and sitting fifth in the League Two table with 10 points from five games. September is a busy month - having got one fixture out of the way, a 1-0 win at Port Vale, we now embark on the second of seven league games, against Morecambe at Meadow Lane. The Shrimps have been widely tipped to endure a difficult season, but they are somewhat of a bogey team for Notts, given they're unbeaten in four and have registered two 4-1 wins. Pride of Nottingham spoke to Morecambe fan Brian ahead of Saturday's game to get an insight on the opposition. About Brian: I've supported the Shrimps since 1995 - a good year as we were promoted into the Conference - and my favourite player of all time is Kevin Ellison. What happened last season with the whole ownership saga? Wish I had an actual proper answer for you! Was all a bit of a mess really. So a Brazilian businessman, Diego Lemos, takes over the club in September. He then goes AWOL, then another suit, Joseph Cala, turns out saying he's the new owner, then Lemos comes back, then the whole thing ends up in court and now it's in the hands of a guy called Graham Burnard. Just a load of nonsense. You're celebrating 10 years in League Two this season. How would you assess your first ever decade in league football? Nothing less than we deserve. We had been steadily rising up the leagues - it's not been quick, but it's about getting there. Being promoted from non-league is hard but we've persevered and got there in the end, and we've had a good run so far in League Two, got some great results along the way and really just enjoying the ride. In an era of hiring and firing managers, you've had just three different men at the helm since 1994. Do you see it as a kind of honour to have had such a little turnaround? Well, the manner in which the club changed manager in 2005-06 was a bit unsavoury - Jim Harvey took us into the Conference and kept us near the top for ten years, then he sadly suffered a heart attack - he recovered, thankfully - which saw Sammy McIlroy take the helm supposedly until the end of the season. Jimmy then came back and was sacked, with McIlroy getting the job permanently. Left a very bitter taste in the mouth, but the club was then promoted the following year, so that was sort of forgotten. But as for the original question, yeah, it's good that each manager has had the chance to create a legacy here. Don't really see it much anymore nowadays. You've had one playoff finish in 2009-10. Can you see Morecambe challenging again for a top seven place this season? I would be surprised if that was the case. Below the top 3 that season, it was all up for grabs, the playing field was so even among the clubs - we were 4th on 73 points, Northampton were on 67 and finished 10th. Now you've got clubs in League Two with huge budgets that are signing Championship-quality players, so unless we get another perfect storm, it's unlikely. But we've got a fairly large squad with a lot of youngsters, so we should be competitive. Who are Morecambe's danger men in the current squad? Adam McGurk joined us on deadline day and he's a striker who caused us no end of trouble when playing against us so we're hoping he hits the ground running for us. Vadaine Oliver is suspended at the minute but he looks a handful, and same for Callum Lang, the young loanee from Wigan. Garry Thompson and Kevin Ellison aren't getting any younger but they've still got goals in them. Final score? Notts are a tricky proposition at the minute, you're on form and are unbeaten at home, but I'm hoping our good recent form against you guys will hold up, so I'm going to say a 1-1 draw.

  17. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has warned his players not to let complacency kick in following their impressive start to the League Two season. The Magpies are currently five games unbeaten following their 1-0 win over Port Vale, a great turnaround following their 3-0 hammering at Coventry City on the opening day of the League Two season. Following the victory at Vale Park, September will now bring two home fixtures in succession, against Morecambe and Swindon Town, but derbies against Lincoln City and Mansfield Town will come later this month. “We are delighted with the start we have had, but gutted that we haven’t had an even better one," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “It’s important that you keep your feet on the ground because we had a great start last year. “There was a chance to go in the top three last season, and I will be reminding the players about that. “Complacency can’t kick in. When you are on a run like this, we have to make sure we work harder to ensure we keep driving this club forwards.” 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.
