  1. What's been happening in League Two over the last week? Here is Pride of Nottingham's round-up of the biggest League Two news from the last seven days. - Port Vale defender Adam Yates announced his retirement, following a serious facial injury in November, but will remain with the club and work with the Port Vale Foundation. - Darren Sarll returned to Stevenage to oversee their youth system, just 10 days after being sacked as their manager.The 35-year-old worked with the club's youth side and was a first-team coach before becoming boss in February 2016. - Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says he has still not reached an agreement with the club to extend his contract. The 45-year-old was served notice on his two-year rolling deal in November 2016 after a vote by the Exeter City Supporter's Trust, which runs the club. - Newport County manager Michael said any new deal for club captain - and former Notts County player - Joss Labadie would have to be a long-term contract rather than a month-to-month agreement, the player likely to be out for at least six months with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. - Sticking with the Exiles, they confirmed that chief executive Alex Tunbridge would be leaving the Welsh club at the end of June after accepting the position of CEO at hometown club Stevenage. - Teenage Crewe Alexandra striker George Nunn joined Premier League giants Chelsea for a reported fee of £300,000, despite not having made a first-team appearance for the Railwaymen.

  2. Port Vale manager Neil Aspin has hit out at the penalty decision which helped Notts County claim all three points in a 1-0 win the New Year's Day game at Meadow Lane. Kevin Nolan's charges had been denied several key decisions by the referee but were given the opportunity to take the lead late on when Marcus Harness's shove on Jon Stead led to the awarding of a spot kick. From 12 yards out, the veteran striker smashed the ball into the top corner, leaving goalkeeper Ryan Boot no chance, to keep Notts well in the automatic promotion positions. “I have watched it back on the laptop and there is minimal contact. He was already going down," Aspin told the Stoke Sentinel. “For us, it’s a really bad decision and I don’t think we deserved it. “I can’t fault the effort of the players. We have had a tough run of games and they come out of that with a lot of credit. It is a real shame that the unbeaten run has been ended by a referee’s decision.” 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 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 place. How did the gaffer, the players and the fans react to the game? Pride of Nottingham rounds up the post-match reaction. Kevin Nolan "I thought we were brilliant. I was pleased with the positive nature in how we responded to what was a poor display on Saturday. "The reaction I got from the lads today was magnificent. We dominated throughout and got the goal we deserved in the end. "I am delighted for Steady to get a goal. People may say it's a penalty and it's a freebie but that is never the case. We have missed enough to know that." Jon Stead "It was a tough game against a very good side who have been in incredible form. Our performance was certainly a good way to respond to the defeat at Swindon. "The manager was desperate for a response to get back on track straightaway, which is what we have done every time we have been beaten. I thought we put in a good performance." The players on social media The Black and White Army Elite_pie: A tight game, and one of the reasons I love lower league football. It was never dull but looked like ending 0-0 until the incompetent ref decided to balance his earlier errors. I would have to see the replays to confirm, but the rugby tackle on Brisley first half looked a stonewall penalty, the body check on Grant was a decent shout, and the one on Stead looked the least convincing of the three, although their defender did seem to attack the player rather than the ball. I feared the worst going into the game, but a brilliant 3 points in just the sort of game we would have lost a year ago. Ian Laxton: I think we are safe. COYP Richard Thompson: 35 points to promotion..... Geoff King: How did that bag of s***e beat Luton 4 nil Share your thoughts about this post-match reaction round-up 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. Notts County have claimed their second win in three League Two games after Jon Stead scored a late penalty to secure a 1-0 victory over Port Vale. The Magpies had lost 1-0 at Swindon Town two days earlier but bounced back by beating a Vale side that had notched up wins over Luton Town and Coventry City over the festive period. Kevin Nolan's charges had been denied several key decisions by the referee but still came up trumps when Marcus Harness's shove on Stead led to the awarding of a spot kick. The veteran striker smashed the ball into the top corner, leaving goalkeeper Ryan Boot no chance, to keep Notts well in the automatic promotion positions. Here are the highlights from the game, posted on the official Notts YouTube channel and shared by Pride of Nottingham.

  6. Kevin Nolan has hailed his "brilliant" Notts County side for responding to the defeat at Swindon Town with a 1-0 victory over Port Vale. Jon Stead's late penalty proved the difference between the two sides and stopped Vale from notching up a third win in a row against League Two's big hitters, having beaten Coventry City and Luton Town prior to their visit of Meadow Lane. "I thought we were brilliant," Nolan told the official Notts site. "I was pleased with the positive nature in how we responded to what was a poor display on Saturday. "The reaction I got from the lads today was magnificent. We dominated throughout and got the goal we deserved in the end. "I am delighted for Steady to get a goal. People may say it's a penalty and it's a freebie but that is never the case. We have missed enough to know that. "(50 points) is what we were aiming to get to as soon as possible so to be there at the turn of the year is an absolutely fantastic achievement by the lads. "Now we can reassess and see how far we can go but we know how hard it is and how hard we have had to work to get to that position from being in the bottom two this time last year to top two this year. "It's not about us getting carried away. We should enjoy it but continue to work hard. Hopefully we are still in the same position come game 46 of the league season."

  7. Notts County have claimed their second win in three League Two games after Jon Stead scored a late penalty to secure a 1-0 victory over Port Vale. The Magpies had lost 1-0 at Swindon Town two days ago but bounced back by beating a Vale side that had notched up wins over Luton Town and Coventry City over the festive period. Notts created the first chance of the afternoon, Lewis Alessandra seeing a powerful strike blocked by Tom Anderson on five minutes. At the other end, Anderson volleyed just over the bar from inside the area in the 10th minute, while Ben Whitfield's dangerous cross three minutes later had to be clawed away by Ross Fitzsimons. Vale came close again on 19 minutes when Danny Pugh's corner pinballed around the Notts area but Whitfield's eventual connection was charged down by Richard Duffy. There was a controversial moment when Shaun Brisley was brought down on the edge of the area, but the referee awarded neither a free kick nor a penalty. County then enjoyed a spell of pressure as Stead rifled Matt Tootle's cutback over from range before Jonathan Forte and Ryan Yates saw efforts kept out by keeper Ryan Boot. Vale finished the half asking questions of the hosts' defence, with Whitfield volleying over and Antony Kay heading off target, but neither side could break the deadlock come the break. Following the restart, Notts began strongly, Forte firing wide after latching onto a long ball over the top and Lewis Alessandra seeing his volley deflected off target. The pendulum continued to swing back and forth as Vale enjoyed several chances, with Anderson seeing an effort of his own deflected wide, plus a header sent off target, while Marcus Harness saw two efforts blocked after slaloming into danger. Grant was the next Notts player to see a penalty appeal waved away after he went down under Harness' challenge in the area. However, it was third time lucky as Stead was brought down by Harness 86 minutes in and the referee pointed to the spot, the veteran striker stepping up and hammering his penalty into his top-left corner. Although Vale finished strongly, they could not pull back an equaliser as the final whistle saw Notts claim all three points.

  8. Head to head and stats Notts County have met Port Vale 102 times over the years, with the first two fixtures coming within a week of each other back in February 1921. The Magpies won the first game 2-1, but lost 1-0 at Meadow Lane. Notts have the upper edge having won 46 games, lost 36, and drawn 20 against the Valiants, with the highest scoring matches coming in February 1927 (a 6-2 defeat) and April 1935 (a 5-3 defeat). Our last meeting was on September 2 this year, with County winning 1-0 at Vale Park. None of the last 17 league matches between these sides has ended as a draw - Notts County have won eight and Port Vale have won nine of those 17 games. The Valiants, 1-0 winners in this exact fixture in the third-tier in February 2015, haven't won back to back league matches at Meadow Lane since January 2002. The Magpies won 17 home matches in all competitions in 2017 - two more than in 2015 and 2016 combined (15). Port Vale have lost nine of their last 11 league matches on New Year's Day, drawing the other two - they last won in 1990, hammering Ipswich 5-0 in a second-tier fixture. Neil Aspin’s men are currently unbeaten in five league games, their last two matches against Coventry and Luton yielding two wins, five goals scored, and none conceded. History Port Vale is one of the few English league clubs not to be named after a geographical location. The name Port Vale exists on maps pre–dating the formation of the club, which probably occurred in 1879, and is a reference to a valley of ports on the Trent and Mersey Canal, associated with the city's pottery industry. The club itself is actually based in Burslem, one of six towns that make up the city of Stoke-on-Trent. Port Vale have never been in the top tier of English football, and the last time they were in the second tier was back in 1999-2000. In terms of silverware, the Valiants have won the Staffordshire Senior Cup twice, in 1920 and 2001, whilst being runners-up in 1900 and 2010, as well as several other regional cups like the Birmingham Senior Cup, one of the oldest county football competitions still active. The club, despite being fairly small, enjoys the support of some world-famous celebrities, including singer Robbie Williams, darts legend Phil "The Power" Taylor, and Blue singer Simon Webbe. Team news Shola Ameobi, Jonathan Forte and Rob Milsom remain doubts for Notts County against Port Vale after missing the 1-0 defeat at Swindon Town. Boss Kevin Nolan was hopeful the trio might return to face the Robins after missing the clash against Morecambe, but none of them made the matchday squad for the game at the County Ground. Richard Duffy dropped out of the squad altogether after being substituted on Boxing Day and could miss out again. Matt Tootle, Carl Dickinson and Terry Hawkridge were brought into the team on Saturday and will be hoping to keep their places. For Port Vale, James Gibbons is back in contention as he returns from suspension. The defender has missed the last four games after being handed a second red card of the season in the recent FA Cup defeat at Yeovil. The Valiants extended their unbeaten league run to five games with an emphatic 4-0 win against Luton on Saturday, so manager Neil Aspin could be tempted to go with the same XI. Defender Kjell Knops remains a long-term absentee due to a knee injury, as does Adam Yates, who is recovering from fractures to his nose, cheekbone and eye socket sustained in November.

  9. Kevin Nolan has provided an injury update on several players ahead of Notts County's home game against Port Vale on New Year's Day. Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy will face late fitness tests, while Rob Milsom will have to see a specialist. The four players did not take part in Saturday's 1-0 loss at Swindon Town and, while Milsom is definitely out, it will be a case of taking it "day by day" with the other three. Nolan also provided updates on goalkeeper Adam Collin, who is now "a couple of weeks away" from a return, and captain Michael O'Connor, who is now back in training. “They are five lads who could start in the team,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “We’ve just got to play it day by day. It just shows that when I talk about how important the depth of the squad is because you can lose four or five in seven days because of this period. “Rob has to go and see a specialist, while Shola, Forte and Duffy are touch and go. “Adam Collin is still a couple of weeks away, while Occy returned to the training pitch this week which was lovely to see him running around the pitch. “But it wasn’t about the lads who were missing on Saturday. I thought the lads who played deserved to get a draw. “They did more than enough, but the defeat just came from sloppy defending on our part.” 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.

  10. Lewis Alessandra has stressed that Notts County will not lose focus over the busy festive period and will look to build on their Boxing Day 4-1 away win over Morecambe. The 28-year-old scored a goal in each half at the Globe Arena, along with Jorge Grant's brace, to help keep the Magpies entrenched in the top three, while Callum Lang claimed a late consolation for the hosts. Up next for Notts is the weekend trip to Swindon Town and the New Year's Day home game with Port Vale, and Alessandra says the players and staff are being "thoroughly professional" during this period. “I’ve been a professional player for 10 years now and Christmas is always the same,” he told the official Notts website. “It’s all the sweeter when you come away from home and get a win and a couple of goals, as I have done today. “The games come thick and fast over the Christmas period and the gaffer reiterated to us that he wants us to detach ourselves from third and fourth. “He wants us to be thoroughly professional and you will get that from all the lads. “It’s about recovery now, then we’ll do game preparation for Swindon, looking at them in detail as we do for all our opponents. We’ll be looking to go there and put in a performance to keep this unbeaten run going.” 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.

  11. Notts County defender Shaun Brisley has claimed that Port Vale's last-minute spending will not have any bearing on the Magpies' tactics ahead of today's League Two meeting at Vale Park. The Valiants strengthened their ranks with the arrival of Harry Middleton from Doncaster Rovers and Burnley defender Tom Anderson, both expected to make their debuts against Notts. Brisley told the Nottingham Post: “I don’t think it matters who teams sign. When you get out on to the pitch it’s just 11 v 11. “We’ve just got to focus on ourselves and make sure we do what we are good at. We’ve got a good squad here with such strength in depth. “So we don’t need to worry about anybody else, we’ve just got to take care of ourselves.” Brisley also opened up about County's improvements with each passing game and believes things will continue to get better as the season rolls on. He added: “We’ve started well apart from the opening loss to Coventry. It was a bit of a weird day and we were second best, which is the best way to put it. “But there was a good reaction from the lads at Scunthorpe and we’ve improved each game as we’ve gone. “Hopefully we will carry on and continue to get even better. You can see in the performances each week since Coventry and we are looking a good outfit.” 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. Notts County are reportedly closing in on Lewis Alessandra who is set to have a medical with the club. The Magpies' may have fought off competition from Port Vale for the Hartlepool United winger, who is set to become the second signing of the summer at Meadow Lane according to The Post. Vale had reportedly shown interest in Alessandra, yet it is understood that the attacking wide-man is now set to undergo a medical on Friday after Notts successfully reached an agreement over a fee with Hartlepool. Notts owner Alan Hardy has allegedly stumped up a five-figure fee for the 28-year-old, who impressed for Pools last season despite their relegation to the National League. Although Alessandra can play upfront as a striker, he regularly featured on the right wing for Pools last season where he impressed largely with his performances in League Two. Alessandra scored nine goals and created another nine which led to significant interest, but is now expected to sign for Kevin Nolan after the Notts manager expressed a desire to add more of a goal threat. Notts have also signed Terry Hawkridge from Lincoln City earlier this month.
