  1. Kevin Nolan has claimed that no team has deserved to beat Notts County at home in the league since Portsmouth last April. The South Coast side won at Meadow Lane at the tail end of last season to secure promotion and, since then, the Magpies had remained unbeaten on their own turf in League Two. However, Exeter City have now ended County's superb unbeaten league home record, winning 2-1 on Saturday. Speaking ahead of Tuesday night's meeting with Crawley Town, Nolan says his side will look to bounce back, and couldn't help but feel bemused about losing the record. “We are just looking for a reaction,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “When we lost to Swindon, we followed that up with a really good performance against Port Vale just a couple of days later. “For me, it does not matter we lost at home. It was a fantastic record that we held and hats off to the lads because we had some really good teams come here this year. “Exeter were the team who ended the run, but I don’t think they deserved to win. In fact, I don’t think anybody has deserved to since we played Portsmouth last April. “But I felt we did more than enough to get something out of the game at the weekend, and the only thing I didn’t think we didn’t do, is work the keeper enough. That’s what we have been working on over the last 48 hours or so.” 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. Alan Hardy has taken inspiration from Portsmouth's promotion celebrations at Meadow Lane on Easter Monday, and is hoping for Notts County to be doing the same in 12 months' time. The Magpies fell to a 3-1 defeat against Pompey, which combined with Luton Town's failure to defeat Mansfield Town, saw the South Coast giants secure League One football for the 2017-18 campaign. Hardy wrote in the Nottingham Post: "Watching the Portsmouth celebrations at full time, I suspect that all Notts fans had the same thoughts as me in that these are the kind of scenes we would love to be a part of in a year's time. "Our form under Kevin Nolan and the players since January has been that of a promotion-winning team and it is the form we are so desperately keen to take into next season. "The foundations we have laid are solid ahead of what will be a big summer at the club when we have to finalise the retained list, discuss new signings and so on. "I have been asked on several occasions whether there will be a lot of upheaval in the summer, but this will be an evolution rather than a revolution. "So moving forward there is much to discuss, because like all of the Notts fans, I hope that come this time next year, it will be us celebrating promotion to League One."

  5. Jorge Grant has claimed that Notts County are not "that far away" from enjoying a promotion feast like Portsmouth did when they came to Meadow Lane on Monday. The Magpies slipped to a 3-1 defeat against the South Coast side, whose ascent out of League Two was confirmed thanks to their win combined with Luton Town's failure to beat Mansfield Town. Grant, who is on loan from Nottingham Forest, believes that Notts can take this season's form into the following campaign, with Kevin Nolan at the helm. "I don't think we are that far away (from doing what Portsmouth did)," Grant told the Nottingham Post. "The gaffer has obviously got everybody going this season and it's been a great run since he has come in. "I can't see it not happening again next year. You've got to be positive going into next season like we have been since January. "I loved being a part of it all too. Everybody has been really nice to me, and I've been able to play my football the way I like to play."

  6. Portsmouth fans have expressed their gratitude to Notts County for their hospitality as the South Coast side clinched promotion to League One. Three relegations in four seasons saw Pompey fall from the Premier League to League Two between 2010 and 2013, but their seventh win from nine games this season sees the club back into the third tier. A combination of their 3-1 win over the Magpies at Meadow Lane, plus Luton Town's failure to beat Mansfield Town, was enough for Portsmouth to mathematically make sure of a departure from the fourth division. While Notts also had cause for celebration as they secured League Two safety, it turned out to be a special occasion for Pompey fans, who had endured several years of hell - much like the Magpies had. Several fans of the South Coast team were very kind in sending us messages of gratitude and support for helping make their day so special, and expressed best wishes for Notts to join them up the Football League next season.

  7. Easter Monday 2017 turned out to be a positive day for both fans of Notts County and of Portsmouth at Meadow Lane. Although the Magpies fell to a 3-1 defeat, Newport County were thrashed by Plymouth Argyle, confirming for good that Notts would be a League Two side next season. Meanwhile, Pompey ended eight years of hurt with a win that sealed promotion into League and going some way towards exorcising the demons of the last few years. Pride of Nottingham spoke to several fans ahead of kickoff at the Lane and asked a number of questions including whether or not Haydn Hollis should remain at Notts and if the club can do a Pompey next season by putting financial woes behind them and going into the third tier.

  8. Notts County secured League Two safety despite falling to a 3-1 defeat to Portsmouth at Meadow Lane on Monday. Gareth Evans put Paul Cook's side ahead from the spot after a foul on Kai Naismith by Richard Duffy. The Magpies drew level in the second half, however, when Jorge Grant found the corner from Elliott Hewitt's pass. Jamal Lowe restored Pompey's lead with an angled shot in the second half and made sure of victory - and eventual promotion - with a second in the 90th minute. The official Notts site has published the game highlights - see how the game panned out for yourself.

  9. Kevin Nolan has attributed Notts County's 3-1 home defeat to Portsmouth as an off day but insists that his side will learn from it. The Magpies fell behind to Gareth Evans's goal from the spot against after a foul on Kai Naismith by Richard Duffy before Jorge Grant found the corner from Elliott Hewitt's pass. Jamal Lowe's double made sure of the points for Pompey, and with Luton Town drawing at Mansfield Town, the results gave the South Coast side promotion from League Two and set off celebrations among the away contingent at Meadow Lane. "I am delighted for (Paul Cook) and (assistant) Leam Richardson, who is a good mate of mine," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "I am delighted they have achieved what they set out for this year and wish them all the best going forward. "I was just a bit disappointed in the way we managed the game. We just didn't do it as well as we have done in the past. Maybe we got caught up in the occasion a bit. But these lads have been fantastic since I walked in the door in January. "We are going to have off days and today was one of them. But it's a learning curve and we will learn from it. "Portsmouth are at the top of the league for a reason and they have been there all season. I thought for the majority of the game we matched them in bits and bobs, just not as consistent as we have been over the last five games."

  10. Notts County's League Two status has been mathematically assured despite falling to a 3-1 defeat against Portsmouth in Monday's fixture at Meadow Lane. The visitors took the lead in the 14th minute when Kal Naismith was brought down by Richard Duffy in the box and Gareth Evans stepped up to send Adam Collin the wrong way. Kevin Nolan's charges, eager to force the visitors to put their promotion champagne on ice, stepped up a gear and Adam Campbell's cross in the Pompey box was threatening, but Jon Stead's connection was tame and David Forde caught with ease. There was more trouble for the Magpies on the stroke of half time when Michael O'Connor had to be carried off on a stretcher having been clattered when he turned the ball back into the box. However, the Magpies continued to look lively after the break and Matt Tootle found Campbell unmarked in the box, only for the forward to volley over the bar. Indeed, Notts drew level in the 51st minute when Elliott Hewitt sent a lofted pass into the area and Jorge Grant met it to send a fine curling finish past Forde’s grasp and into the net. However, the visitors were intent on getting the job done and, 12 minutes from time, Jamal Lowe picked the ball up outside the area, cut onto his right foot and drilled home past the diving Collin. Notts fans thought they should have had a penalty soon after when Mark Yeates’s cross appeared to strike the hand of Christian Burgess, but it wasn't given. Eventually the game was put beyond the hosts' reach when Lowe chipped Collin in the final minutes of the game to seal victory and, due to Luton Town's draw with Mansfield Town, confirmed their ascent to League One. Despite the defeat and Nolan's first home defeat as Notts boss, however, second-from-bottom Newport County's revival was stunted with a 6-1 defeat at Plymouth Argyle which means that the Magpies would finish the day 11 points clear of them with just nine left to play for.

  11. Who was your man of the match for Notts County against Portsmouth today?
  12. Notts County and Portsmouth have met a total of 29 times over the years, the first meeting coming on the 20th November 1926, which the Magpies lost 3-2 at Meadow Lane. We have beaten Pompey 13 times and played out six draws, with the South Coast side winning on 10 occasions. Between December 1992 and December 1994 the two teams played each other six times, with Notts failing to get a win in a run that saw three draws and three defeats. Portsmouth have been champions of England twice, in 1949 and 1950. The club has also won the FA Cup on two occasions, in 1939 and most recently in 2008, and also reached the final of the competition in 2010. Portsmouth were moderately successful in the 2000s, especially during the 2007–08 Premier League season, when they won the FA Cup, beating Cardiff City 1-0 in the final. They subsequently qualified for the 2008–09 UEFA Cup competing against European heavyweights such as seven-times European Cup winners AC Milan. During this period, Portsmouth were recognised to have a large number of international footballers, including England players Glen Johnson and Jermain Defoe, as well as Peter Crouch, David James and Sol Campbell. However, financial problems soon set in and Portsmouth were relegated to the Championship in 2010. In 2012 they were again relegated, to League One, and again, in 2013, to League Two. They began the 2013–14 season in the fourth tier of the English football league system for the first time since the late 1970s. Portsmouth became the largest fan-owned football club in England, after the Pompey Supporters Trust (PST) successfully gained possession of Fratton Park in April 2013. Team news Kevin Nolan has no new injury or suspension worries for Monday's game. Michael O'Connor returned as captain and was on the scoresheet in the Magpies' 2-2 draw at Crewe Alexandra on Good Friday and is expected to keep his place. Mark Yeates impressed as a substitute in that game and will hope to feature against Pompey Likewise, Portsmouth have no fresh injury concerns ahead of their visit of Meadow Lane. Noel Hunt is still missing so Gary Roberts, who scored on Friday against Plymouth, will retain his place up front. Conor Chaplin is vying for a place in the starting line-up after coming off the bench in the draw with the Pilgrims. Forwards Eoin Doyle and Curtis Main remain sidelined for the rest of the campaign.

  13. Kevin Nolan has claimed that while he has fond memories of being promoted at an away game, he does not want Portsmouth to be enjoying a promotion party of their own at Meadow Lane on Monday. Pompey face Notts County in Nottingham in two days' time and, should they beat the Magpies and Luton Town drop points, they will be promoted to League One. Nolan enjoyed a promotion party at Plymouth Argyle seven years ago as part of the Newcastle United squad, and remembers how the Pilgrims allowed them to celebrate at Home Park. "We went to Plymouth and what happened there was fantastic," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "They got relegated on the same night we won the title, but they were brilliant to us as a club. They allowed the celebrations and put all the songs on for us and things like that. It was a first class attitude from them. "If Portsmouth do get promotion then they will get a shake of the hand from me. We will maybe have a glass of champagne on their behalf, but we don't want that scenario to happen. "I told the lads I don't want the party at our place. We've just got to make sure we keep the run going. "The last I heard was they (Portsmouth) had sold nearly 5,000 tickets. It's going to be a good day, but what we have to do is make sure we don't get carried away with everything that's going on around the game. "We have to make sure we do what we have been doing at home which is making it difficult for Portsmouth and deliver the kind of performances we have been producing of late. "It's another one for the lads to put a statement out there which says I am ready for next year."

  14. Matt Tootle is looking forward to Monday's "massive" League Two home game against Portsmouth, claiming that the anticipated record crowd and buzzing atmosphere is a sign of "how far the club's come and where it's going". The Magpies will be welcoming to Meadow Lane a Pompey side which could seal promotion out of the fourth tier, where they have been languishing since 2013 following catastrophic financial hardship which is now behind them. Notts are also smiling after their own off-the-pitch problems came to an end when Alan Hardy took over the club this year, with manager Kevin Nolan all but guiding the side out of relegation danger and the future looking much rosier for the previously beleagured NG2 side. Tootle is relishing not only the prospect of a big crowd and atmosphere, but also the opportunity for the team to test themselves against high-flying opposition. The defender told the official Notts site: "It's a massive game, Monday. It will be a really good day for everyone and it will show how far the club's come, and where it's going. "It's a good test for us. We beat Plymouth a few months ago, we beat Portsmouth away and we'll show on Monday that we're just as good, if not better than them. "This should really be a top-of-the-table clash. It will be a great game and a great crowd - and I can't wait."

  15. Alan Hardy is looking forward to Easter Monday's Meadow Lane clash between Notts County and Portsmouth and hopes that more people go through the turnstiles than for the Mansfield Town game. Pompey are gunning for automatic promotion from League Two this season, sitting third on 74 points - eight ahead of Luton Town with just five games left, and have a chance to confirm their ascent into League One in Nottingham. The Notts owner is relishing the chance to see a top-three side try their luck at "our fortress", in what he expects will be a game with brilliant atmosphere. Hardy wrote in the Nottingham Post: "[The win over Carlisle] set us up very nicely for the games over the Easter weekend which is a great time of the year for any football fan given the amount of fixtures. "First we travel to Crewe on Good Friday where we hope to continue our momentum ahead of the Portsmouth game on Bank Holiday Monday. "That game has got so many people talking around the city, not least because Portsmouth fans are travelling in their thousands as they look to win promotion to League One. "Ticket sales have been magnificent and I am hoping that we will surpass our biggest attendance of the season so far which was against Mansfield Town back in January. "More than 11,000 fans came through the gates for that derby, but I am expecting us to eclipse that total and I cannot wait to experience the atmosphere. "For some time now, I have been longing to see a top-three team at our fortress because that's what Meadow Lane has become. "We are unbeaten at home in 2017 and I don't think there will be too many teams across the divisions who can boast that kind of record."
