  1. Kevin Nolan has spoken of the virus which is currently plaguing the Notts County setup and is hoping that it will clear up in the next week or two. A number of players have been suffering with the bug as Elliott Hewitt missed the games against Swansea City and Barnet. Alan Smith and Lewis Alessandra, meanwhile, both sat out the trip to the Hive, and Nolan has acknowledged that it's "going through the whole club" at present. "I've not been feeling great myself and Richard Thomas has been the same," Nolan told the official club site on Monday ahead of the Carlisle United fixture.
  2. Notts County's FA Cup journey ended on a sour note as Swansea City ran out 8-1 winners in their FA Cup fourth-round replay at the Liberty Stadium. Tammy Abraham and Nathan Dyer grabbed braces, while Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge, Tom Carroll and Daniel James all scored one apiece as Noor Husin's impressive 35th-minute strike proved a scant consolation. How did the Kevin Nolan, the Notts players and the fans react to the result? Pride of Nottingham has compiled the post-match reaction. Kevin Nolan "When you come to these clubs you have to hope for a bit of luck and that the
  3. Alan Hardy has praised Notts County's fans for their "astonishingly good" support at Swansea City and stresses the need to focus on League Two beginning with today's game with Barnet. The Magpies fans continued to sing even when their team was on the receiving end of a 8-1 defeat in Tuesday's FA Cup fourth-round replay at the Liberty Stadium. Hardy admits the heavy loss left him struggling to sleep afterwards and says he felt sorry for the travelling fans, but is eager to move on and hopefully end the week with a win at the Hive Stadium. "I didn’t sleep well afterwards as I didn
  4. Kevin Nolan has stressed that Notts County's players will become stronger following the FA Cup elimination at the hands of Swansea City in midweek. The Magpies did superbly to earn a fourth-round replay against the Swans after holding them to a 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane in the first game. However, Carlos Carvalhal is working miracles with his new side, who have beaten both Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League prior to meeting Notts at the Liberty Stadium. As it turned out, the Welsh side was in rampant form which, combined with a County off day, culminated in a 8-1 hammerin
  5. Kevin Nolan has outlined the need for Notts County to put the FA Cup elimination at the hands of Swansea City behind them and focus on the upcoming League Two trip to Barnet on Saturday. While the Magpies were in action at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night, Accrington Stanley beat Swindon Town to move up to third in the standings, nudging Notts into fourth. Although saluting his side's great cup run and describing the Swansea replay as a welcome "freebie", Nolan says there are "different things to worry about now". “I can’t see it affecting any confidence in terms of what we
  6. Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal has praised his players for making Notts County look like "they are not a good team" in their FA Cup fourth-round replay on Tuesday night. The Swans were held to a 1-1 draw in the first game at Meadow Lane but recorded an 8-1 win at the Liberty Stadium to send the Magpies crashing out of the competition. Carvalhal, who has masterminded an upturn in form for a Swansea side that looked set on dropping out of the Premier League, admits he knew they were in for "a challenge". "It is important if it is the best result in the history, but the most
  7. Kevin Nolan has declared himself proud of his Notts County players for their impressive FA Cup run despite it coming to a humbling end in their FA Cup fourth-round replay at Swansea City. When the Magpies claimed a 1-1 draw in the first game at Meadow Lane, there was much scope to believe an upset could have been on the cards in Wales. However, Carlos Carvalhal's charges were on top of their game, while the visitors very much had an off day, culminating in an 8-1 defeat at the hands of the Swans. Despite the scoreline, Nolan was quick to pay tribute to his charges and will now f
  8. Notts County's evening in the limelight ended up being as one-sided as Apollo Creed's bout with Ivan Drago in Rocky IV and yielded the same outcome as Swansea City ran out 8-1 winners in Tuesday night's FA Cup fourth-round replay at the Liberty Stadium. With the game being televised and Swansea being held to a 1-1 draw in the first game at Meadow Lane, there was real hope that the Magpies would be able to register a very plausible giant killing against a Premier League side who, despite enjoying an upturn in form, remain in a relegation dogfight. However, things did not go to plan as
  9. Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal has stressed that, whilst his focus is on Premier League survival, he will still field a strong team against Notts County in their FA Cup fourth-round replay. The Magpies travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on the Swans tonight, who have enjoyed an upturn of form in the league in recent weeks. Swansea had just 13 points to their name from 20 games when the Portuguese was named as Paul Clement’s successor; they have taken 11 from six under his stewardship. However, they were unable to see off Notts at Meadow Lane in the first game, Jon Stead s
  10. Notts County coach Mark Crossley has revealed how Cardiff City have allowed the Magpies to use their training facilities ahead of tonight's FA Cup fourth-round meeting with Swansea City. The first game finished 1-1 at Meadow Lane which meant a replay at the Liberty Stadium for a place in the fifth round and a trip to Sheffield Wednesday. Cardiff are now hoping to see their bitter South Welsh rivals beaten at the second attempt and Crossley says the Bluebirds are paying back a favour. “Our chairman owns Ilkeston Town and Cardiff used their ground before their FA Cup tie at Mansfi
  11. Notts County travel to the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night for an FA Cup fourth-round replay against Swansea City with a fifth-round trip to Sheffield Wednesday up for grabs. How will the Magpies fare against the Swans? Can Kevin Nolan's charges build on their 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane or will Swansea's Premier League quality show? Here is Pride of Nottingham's pre-match preview. What happened in the first game Notts began brightly against the top-flight strugglers but their opponents soon stepped up a gear and had the hosts under the cosh before finding the net on the strok
  12. How amazing would it be to see Notts make yet another round in the FA Cup? I think it would be incredible, and tomorrow night Kevin Nolan’s side will head into a game against Swansea City whereby we could progress to the 5th round. This season has been very surreal, it’s almost at the complete end of last year’s spectrum and I believe the hard work on the field is paying off dividends. It’s a tough ask from our squad playing in the fourth tier of English football to go to a Premier League side and play in such a fashion that could snatch a win. However, I feel we are very m
  13. Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight with Notts County's big 4-1 win over Crewe Alexandra in terms of carrying the momentum forward into Tuesday night's FA Cup fourth-round replay at Swansea City. The Magpies drew 1-1 with the Swans in the first game to secure a replay at the Liberty Stadium, with a fifth-round meeting at Sheffield Wednesday up for grabs. County's League Two form in January was wobbly but the team got back to winning ways against the Railwaymen in front of a packed Meadow Lane on Saturday. The result kept the club in the division's automatic promotion places an
  14. Alan Hardy has expressed his disappointment with drawing Sheffield Wednesday away in the fifth round of the FA Cup but believes that Notts County could beat the Owls should they get past Swansea City. The Magpies remained in the hat for Monday's last-16 draw after holding the Premier League Swans to a 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane for a replay at the Liberty Stadium. The winner of the tie will go on to face Wednesday at Hillsborough and, despite hoping for an away tie against a Premier League giant, Hardy thinks the Yorkshire side could be a similar proposition to third-round opponents Bre
  15. Swansea City boss Carlos Carvalhal has praised Notts County for stepping up their game in Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round encounter at Meadow Lane, which enabled them to come away with a 1-1 draw. The Magpies began brightly but their opponents soon stepped up a gear and had the hosts under the coash before finding the net on the stroke of half time through Luciano Narsingh. Kevin Nolan's charges were much improved in the second half, however, as Jorge Grant spurned three gilt-edged chances in quick succession. Eventually, County's pressure was rewarded as veteran striker Jon Stea
  16. Jon Stead kept up his record of scoring in every round of the FA Cup as his equaliser earned Notts County a deserved replay in a 1-1 draw with Swansea City in the fourth round. Luciano Narsingh's strike on the stroke of half-time put the Premier League's bottom club ahead at Meadow Lane but the Magpies went up a gear after the restart, with Jorge Grant coming close on three occasions in quick succession. Stead, who famously put in a superb performance for Bradford City in their fourth-round upset of Chelsea several years ago, then fired home on the hour mark to guarantee a place in t

  20. Kevin Nolan has lauded Notts County's "magnificent" performance in their 1-1 draw with Swansea City in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Magpies began brightly at Meadow Lane on Saturday but their opponents soon stepped up a gear and found the net on the stroke of half time through Luciano Narsingh. Notts were much better in the second half as Jorge Grant spurned several chances before veteran striker Jon Stead turned home on the hour to clinch a replay at the Liberty Stadium. "I'm absolutely delighted," Nolan told BBC Sport. "I thought the boys were fantastic, and we were unf
  21. Who was your man of the match for Notts County against Swansea City in the FA Cup?
  22. Notts County's FA Cup adventure is still alive as the Magpies held Premier League side Swansea City to a 1-1 draw in Saturday's fourth-round encounter at Meadow Lane. The hosts began brightly as Jorge Grant and Jon Stead combined to get the ball into the box and Elliott Hewitt came within a whisker of turning home at the far post. Swansea took a while to get into gear, with Mike van der Hoorn and Tammy Abraham failing to trouble Adam Collin, whose return to fitness coincided nicely following Ross Fitzsimons's suspension. Around the half-hour mark the visitors began to provide mo
  23. Alan Hardy has expressed his hopes of seeing Notts County repeat the heroics against Brentford in knocking Swansea City out of the FA Cup at the fourth-round stage. The Magpies have done superbly in the competition, seeing off two higher-league teams in the Bees and Bristol Rovers, plus a banana skin in non-league Oxford City, to find themselves up against the Premier League side. Hardy has described the third-round win over Brentford as the greatest day of his reign as chairman so far and is hopeful to become "the centre of the headline-writers’ attentions across the world". "W
  24. Much like in politics, a week - or to be precise in this case, two - is a long time in football. When Notts County learned of their FA Cup fourth-round opponents, quite a lot of fans would have been happier to be up against Swansea City than against Wolverhampton Wanderers. After all, one is a team top of the Championship with momentum, players way too good for the division and shedloads of cash, while the other is a down-and-out team with morale the same as their position in the Premier League table - ie rock bottom - and couldn't score in a brothel. Notts, meanwhile, had enjoy
  25. Head to head Notts County have met Swansea City/Town 70 times over the years - the Magpies have 24 wins, the Swans have 30 wins, and 16 games have been drawn. The first meeting came on 23 October 1926 in Division Two, Swansea Town winning 3-1 at Meadow Lane. The last time both sides met was in League Two on 5 March 2005, a 1-0 win for the Magpies thanks to Mark Stallard's 50th-minute goal. The last meeting between these two sides in the FA Cup came in January 1934, with the Swans winning 1-0 at home. Stats Notts County have reached the fifth round on just one occa
