  1. Matt Virtue has praised his teammates at Notts County for helping him out during his loan spell from Liverpool and is especially happy about Kevin Nolan's characteristics and man-management skills. Since arriving in Nottingham, the 20-year-old took a while to find his feet but is now fully integrated in the squad, making 12 appearances so far, and he is enjoying the dressing-room atmosphere. “All of them really (have taken him under their wing), I can’t fault any of them. All of them have been class," Virtue told the Nottingham Post. “Obviously it’s my first loan spell, they’ve
  2. Shola Ameobi has admitted that he is not outwardly looking to go into coaching once he hangs up his boots but has not fully closed the door on a potential switch to the dugout. The 36-year-old, who is in his 20th campaign as a professional footballer, is to make a decision on his future at the end of the season. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has said he would welcome Ameobi as a coach at Meadow Lane, but the veteran striker admits he doesn't feel he has a passion for it. “Obviously management is something you think about and people have mentioned in the past that I’ve got the me
  3. Colchester United captain Luke Prosser has spoken of the incident where Notts County's Shola Ameobi allegedly elbowed him in the chest, and says he received an apology about it after the game. Just before half time, the veteran Magpies forward appeared to elbow Prosser in the chest, although referee Brendan Malone chose to take no action. Ameobi went on to score County's second goal in Saturday's 3-1 away win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, which kept them in the hunt for a top seven spot. “I went to see the doctor, and have just looked at the incident in the physio room,
  4. Shola Ameobi has revealed that he is mulling over whether to retire at the end of the season but will consider it properly in the summer. The 36-year-old has enjoyed a fruitful career in the English game, with more than 300 appearances for Newcastle United, the club he is most associated with. Ameobi has also impressed in Notts County colours since signing for Kevin Nolan last winter, and this season he has netted five and assisted four in 33 appearances. “That love is certainly still there for me,” Ameobi told the Nottingham Post. “It's a tough one. I think my mind wants t
  5. Shola Ameobi has stressed that he and other senior members of the Notts County contingent must "set the tone" for the rest of the squad. The veteran striker has experience playing at the top level for Newcastle United and at international level for Nigeria. Ameobi is one of several such players and coaches at Meadow Lane, with Kevin Nolan, Mark Crossley, Jon Stead and Alan Smith also enjoying playing careers at the top level. All must play their part in helping the rest of the Magpies squad handle the pressure of the League Two promotion battle, says Ameobi. “We have player
  6. Notts County have claimed a much-needed three points in a 2-0 win over Stevenage in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. Jorge Grant came off the bench to open the scoring on 77 minutes, with Shola Ameobi adding a second three minutes later to make sure of victory. The opening stages of the game brought about opportunities for both sides as Luke Amos bundled the ball into the side netting and Ben Hall sent an effort over the Boro bar. Ben Kennedy and John Goddard then tested Adam Collin with tentative chances, while at the other end Elliott Hewitt headed over from Ter
  7. An entertaining and informative interview from Sky Sports with Notts County veterans Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi, alas not-very-affectionately named "The Old Guys"... The Old Guys: Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi Q&A Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi may be well into the twilight of their careers, but both are still going strong for Notts County as they push for promotion in League Two. Ahead of their FA Cup clash with Swansea on Saturday, Stead, 34, and Ameobi, 36, sat down with Soccer Saturday to discuss their motivations to keep playing, their proudest moments and more... What mo
  8. 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
  9. Kevin Nolan should find out today if Shola Ameobi, Jonathan Forte and Rob Milsom will be available for Saturday's game with Swindon Town. The trio all missed the 4-1 win over Morecambe on Boxing Day with knocks but Nolan has been monitoring their fitness over the last two days. Notts will be hoping to build on the victory at the Globe Arena to further entrench their position in the top three of League Two. “I am hoping they are all going to be available,” he told the Nottingham Post on Wednesday. “I will know more on Thursday if they are going to have a chance of making the game
  10. Kevin Nolan has revealed that Shola Ameobi and Jonathan Forte face fitness tests after picking up knocks in Notts County's 3-3 draw with Cambridge United on Saturday. Ameobi signalled to the bench to come off in the second half of the game, but had to remain on the pitch as the Magpies had already made all three substitutions. Forte, meanwhile, took a blow to the hip after coming on as a sub and was visibly struggling to stay on his feet after scoring the injury-time equaliser which completed the remarkable comeback. “Shola is going to be a worry with all the games coming up,” N
  11. Shola Ameobi has played down the significance of Notts County's 1-1 draw with Luton Town but insists that the Magpies could still be in the hunt for automatic promotion at the end of the season if they keep up the level shown at Kenilworth Road. Notts are still second in the table on goal difference, level on points with the impressive Hatters following the draw in Bedfordshire, in which Ameobi scored to cancel out Johnny Mullins's opener. Although there are still 25 games to go, the former Newcastle United striker says the team is enjoying the way things are at present and feels the
  12. A couple of years ago, Notts County boasted a number of former Manchester United players in Alan Smith, Roy Carroll and Kevin Pilkington. Of those, only Smith is still at Meadow Lane, which has morphed into a bit of a "Newcastle United Old Boys Club" now. Smith also played at St James' Park, while Kevin Nolan and Shola Ameobi also donned the "other" black and white stripes up on Tyneside. Having former Premier League players, individuals whose careers continue to be held in high esteem, at Notts is a huge boost on three fronts - on the pitch, off the pitch, and in the marketing depar
  13. Shola Ameobi has claimed that Notts County were the better side in the 1-1 draw against Luton Town, which proved that the Magpies "can mix it with the best" in League Two. The Magpies impressed against the table-toppers and, even though they fell behind to Johnny Mullins's header, came from behind to claim a point through Ameobi's reply. "We knew it was going to be tough and the atmosphere was quite ferocious," the veteran striker told the Notts site. "But I think we dealt with it very well, which showed the character of the players. "We were disappointed to lose the goal after
  14. Despite remaining level with League Two leaders Luton Town on points, Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has spoken of his delight in edging closer to the "safety" 50-point mark. In Saturday's big game at Kenilworth Road, Johnny Mullins' header put the hosts ahead in the first half but Shola Ameobi hit back with a header of his own to earn a 1-1 draw. "We limited them to very few chances," Nolan told the official site. "Ross Fitzsimons pulled off a great save at the end, but overall we had a lot of opportunities - especially in the first half. "They hit us with a sucker punch, but th
  15. Alan Hardy has recently described what he is doing - and continuing to do - at Notts County as a "revolution". Given how the last 11 months or so have panned out, you wouldn't argue against it. This time last year, Notts were in the middle of a truly horrendous losing run which would go on to span 10 matches, and the atmosphere at Meadow Lane was understandably so toxic that Chernobyl would have felt like a spa weekend in comparison. And indeed, Hardy has done the conventional things right - he's invested shrewdly in the club from top to bottom, appointing a dynamic young manager in
  16. Kevin Nolan has provided an update on Shola Ameobi, revealing that the Notts County striker is touch and go in terms of his availability ahead of Saturday's League Two meeting with Luton Town. The veteran marksman sat out Saturday’s 3-2 win over Oxford City in the second round of the FA Cup with a suspected groin injury. Nolan insists that Ameobi is doing well but, due to having potentially aggravated a previous injury, the club's medical team are being cautious with him as they don't want to lose him for a long time. “Shola’s okay, but we have to wrap him up in cotton wool,” th
  17. Kevin Nolan has revealed that strike pair Shola Ameobi and Jon Stead face a race against time to be involved in Notts County's FA Cup second-round tie against Oxford City this Saturday. Stead limped out of the 1-1 draw at Yeovil Town earlier in the month with a leg injury, while Ameobi has only recently returned from a knock himself. In addition to the veteran front pairing, Callum Saunders is also recovering from a bout of flu. "Steady is recovering slowly but surely," Nolan told the official Notts site. "We'll see in the next 24-48 hours whether or not he'll have a chance to b
  18. A dramatic late winner from Ryan Yates kept Notts County level on points with Luton Town at the top of League Two thanks to a 2-1 win over Colchester United at Meadow Lane. The hosts had gone in front in the 68th minute when Shola Ameobi clinically converted a penalty kick after Mikael Mandron was adjudged to have pulled back Yates inside the area. Mandron had the chance to make amends for his earlier mistake when Ryan Jackson was fouled by Jorge Grant, but saw his penalty superbly saved by Magpies goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons. However, the U's did manage to draw level in the 89th
  19. Kevin Nolan has hailed Notts County's "fantastic win" against Colchester United and said his players are showing the right character to be towards the top of the league. Shola Ameobi's penalty had given the Magpies the lead but substitute Sanmi Odelusi looked to have salvaged a point for the U's with his 89th-minute strike. However, there was time for more drama as Ryan Yates glanced home a header to claim all three points for Notts for a 2-1 win and keep them level on points with top-placed League Two side Luton Town. “This is a fantastic win for us because Colchester are a goo
  20. Notts County remain level on points with League Two leaders Luton Town and sit five points above the playoff places thanks to a last-gasp 2-1 win over Colchester United. Neither side was able to open the scoring by the break, although the U's were the better side in the opening stages, but Kevin Nolan's charges soon got into gear and weighed in with several dangerous chances. In the second half, however, the Magpies stepped up a gear and should have had a penalty on the hour mark. Matt Tootle's pass found its way to Lewis Alessandra and the winger fired an effort towards goal, o
  21. Jorge Grant has paid tribute to Notts County strikers Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi following their 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town on Saturday. The midfielder took his tally for the season to 13 with his fourth brace of the season, with Shaun Brisley adding a third to keep the Magpies top of League Two. "Shola and Steady were unbelievable today," Grant told the official Notts site. "The ball stuck to them and they allowed the midfielders to come up and work off them. "The set from Steady for the first goal was perfect for me to run on to and hit first-time, so I have to give him cred
  22. Kevin Nolan is hoping that Shola Ameobi will not be out for too long but insists Notts County can continue to cope in case he remains absent beyond this weekend. The veteran striker sat out the 1-1 draw at Stevenage last weekend, failing to make the squad with what is believed to be a groin injury. Nolan suggested that the injury is minor as he was hoping to have Ameobi back for this Saturday's encounter with Cheltenham Town but will not rush him back to action. “He’s done really well for us, but that’s why we have the squad we do in that if we do have these niggling injuries, w
  23. Notts County returned to winning ways in emphatic style thanks to a 3-0 win over Newport County in Saturday's Meadow Lane clash. The visitors were reduced to 10 men in the 34th minute when Dan Butler was dismissed following an elbow on Matt Tootle. The Magpies went on to take fell behind shortly afterwards when Jorge Grant slotted home from Jon Stead's pass. Shola Ameobi then doubled the Magpies' advantage with a neat finish after 52 minutes, turning in a Grant cross. The Nottingham Forest loanee went on to score his second of the match three minutes later when he nodded in
  24. Notts County have returned to the top of League Two thanks to an emphatic 3-0 win over Newport County at Meadow Lane on Saturday. The hosts enjoyed the first opening of the game as Elliott Hewitt received a cutback from Jon Stead on the edge of the area and went for goal but sent his effort wide. Mike Flynn's charges responded through Dan Butler, who let rip with a powerful effort which Ross Fitzsimons did well to hold. Jon Stead then headed inches wide from Matt Tootle’s cross while Terry Hawkridge volleyed over, but on 33 minutes came the moment that turned the tide in Notts's
  25. Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight with Notts County's performance in their 3-0 win over ten-man Newport County and believes that the scoreline could have been even more flattering for the Magpies. Jorge Grant scored a brace for Notts in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane either side of Shola Ameobi's strike and only the woodwork denied the Nottingham Forest loanee a hat-trick from a free kick. “I was delighted with the performance and we were like our old selves again,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “It was what we were producing when we were at the top of the leagu
