  1. Kevin Nolan has urged Notts County to keep their standards high as he seeks to keep cultivating a fear factor for opposing teams who come to Meadow Lane. The Magpies are unbeaten at home so far this season and have not lost in their last six games in all competitions. Tonight, Swindon Town - a team relegated from League One last season - come to Nottingham to take on Notts, and though Nolan says it's a tough ask, he thinks his players can match them. “Swindon have won their last two away games. They obviously fancy themselves away from home,” he told the Nottingham Post. “They’ve got good players and we respect them. Crawley and Barnet have gone to their place and hit them on the counter. “They can come here and play with that bit more freedom. We have to deal with that – we know teams will respect us, so we’ve got to be patient. “It’s going to be a tough ask again. We want to win and this team has a lot more to come. We’re working on dominating games and keeping this run going. “Swindon try to play but I feel our lads can match them. If we switch on we can beat anyone, but if we don’t, anyone can beat us on the day. “I’m trying to instil that into the lads. I feel we’ve got a good thing going here. “(Morecambe boss) Jim (Bentley) said he felt there was a real buzz about the place that he’s not felt here before. That gets you wins. “There’s a fear factor, so I’m pleased to hear that. Hopefully we keep the run going. “Most of the teams we’ve played so far will be up there come May. I’m very pleased with how we’ve handled it. “At the minute everything is going well. We can’t let the staff or players get away with anything. “We’ve got to keep those standards high. All the lads know their responsibilities.” 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.

  2. Kevin Nolan has hailed his Notts County charges as being "brilliant from start to finish" against Swindon Town but insists he will keep his feet on the ground despite their lofty league position. The Magpies beat the Robins 1-0 at Meadow Lane on Tuesday night, with Jon Stead rattling home a penalty in the first half, and the win sees them up to second in League Two. "I thought we were brilliant from start to finish," Nolan told the official website. "Everyone who stepped in tonight was fantastic. "Swindon threw everything at us. They're a good side and have won their last three on the road - that's where they pick up most of their points. "So we knew it was going to be a difficult task tonight, but overall I thought we were deserved winners. "This was another fantastic win and, you know me, I love my clean sheets. I don't think any of the players could be marked below seven out of 10 today. "The table never lies, but I'm not going to look at it now. We've got to get to safety first. "We were in a similar position last season so we've got to make sure we don't get carried away. This isn't a forgiving league. If you start thinking you've made it, it can bite you on the backside. "It's really important we continue to work hard and believe in what we're doing. I feel we've still got plenty to come, which is hugely satisfying for me."

  3. Notts County have made it seven matches unbeaten in all competitions thanks to victory over Swindon Town on Tuesday night. The Robins came to Meadow Lane hoping to extend their superb away record in League Two, but luckily - for us - it wasn't to be. Arguably the toughest opponent on paper for Notts so far this season since Coventry City, Kevin Nolan's charges were well drilled and well organised. The winner came midway through the first half as Olly Lancashire conceded a penalty, which Jon Stead duly rattled home. County's win puts them second in the League Two table and ensures that the Black and White Army is on a great wavelength as autumn rolls in. ARLukomski, a Notts vlogger and Pride of Nottingham contributor, discussed the fixture ahead of kickoff, gave his thoughts as the game went on, and talked about the performance and result after the final whistle.

  4. Notts County have climbed to second in League Two following a solid 1-0 win over Swindon Town in Tuesday night's clash at Meadow Lane. Jon Stead's penalty just after the half-hour mark, after he was bundled over in the box by Olly Lancashire, was enough to secure the points for Kevin Nolan's charges. The result also sees the Magpies notch up a seventh unbeaten game in all competitions, which has resulted in an incredible vibe among the Black and White Army. Here is some of the reaction from some of the Notts players, the manager, and the Black and White Army. Kevin Nolan “We were brilliant from start to finish. The lads were fantastic. “I’ve been speaking about this squad and them knowing what’s expected. Everyone who came in was fantastic, so I’m delighted with it all. “Swindon threw everything at us. We knew it would be difficult. They’re a good side, but we fully deserved to win. “I spoke to the press on Monday and said I could make seven or eight changes. That’s what you want. “The table doesn’t lie but I’m not going to look at it now after seven games. “We’ve got to get to safety first. We were in a good position last season. “If you think you’ve made it, you get bitten on the backside. We’ve got to keep working hard.” The players The fans (from the PON forum match discussion) Chris: "Well, Swindon tried to hit us with pace and played exactly as I outlined in our scouting report feature. They didn't play 'great', but they were decent enough. Hard work pulled the victory off, however knew the game wouldn't see many goals and thankfully we got the penalty (as neither side looked capable of scoring). This said, I do feel we deserved the win because we played as one unit." Fozzy: "It's just not good enough, I'm starting to run out of things to moan about! Can't fault yesterday's performance, it was a big gamble to make so many changes for the match, especially against strong opponents, but it worked. Still waiting for Stead to score in open play though!"

  9. Notts County have climbed to second in League Two following Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Swindon Town at Meadow Lane. Jon Stead grabbed the winner from the penalty spot just after the half-hour mark following Olly Lancashire's foul in the box. A tough proposition for Notts, the Robins were relegated from League One last season and have adapted to life in the fourth tier well enough so far. However, their great away run came to an end in Nottingham, while County's impressive run goes from strength to strength. Notts County's official YouTube page has uploaded the highlights to the game - relive yet another solid win for the Magpies!

  10. Notts County have edged up to second in League Two following another workmanlike performance in Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Swindon Town. Jon Stead's penalty just after the half-hour mark, after he was bundled over in the box by Olly Lancashire, was enough to secure the points for Kevin Nolan's charges. The first sighting of goal came in the eighth minute when Richard Duffy’s botched header fell to Keshi Anderson in the area, but the Swindon man volleyed straight at Adam Collin. Matty Taylor then picked out Luke Norris with a cross to the back post, but his header on the stretch flew wide. Notts were next to threaten as Lewis Alessandra went close with a rasping drive which whistled past the post from 20 yards. Carl Dickinson then curled a free kick from 25 yards against the outside of the post and out of play as the heavens opened up and torrential rain began falling onto the Meadow Lane pitch. Notts went on to take the lead through Stead's penalty and held onto their slender advantage going into the break. Both sides traded blows throughout the second half but the Magpies were able to hold on for another priceless win which stretches their unbeaten run to seven games in all competitions.

  11. Notts County welcome Swindon Town to Meadow Lane this evening. As openings to a season go, the Magpies have had arguably one of the toughest ones out there this year in League Two, with all four sides relegated from League One last season up against us in our first seven fixtures. Kevin Nolan's charges have however navigated a very tricky start reasonably well, save for the opener against Coventry City of course, and tonight, another team expected to bounce right back up to comes to Nottingham for what the gaffer has described as "another tough ask". History Notts have met Swindon on 63 occasions, the first time being 103 years ago in the FA Cup. On that day in January 1911, the Robins beat the Magpies 2-0 at the County Ground. Of the 63 clashes, 24 have been won by Notts, 27 by Swindon, and 12 have been drawn. The last meeting between the two was on 7 March 2015, away at the County Ground, and the Robins ran out 3-0 winners. Current league position Notts - third (13 points) Swindon - ninth (10 points) Run-down of the opposition's five games Saturday 12th August – Swindon Town 1 Exeter City 1 Saturday 19th August – Morecambe 0 Swindon Town 1 Saturday 26th August – Swindon Town 0 Crawley Town 3 Saturday 2nd September – Swindon Town 1 Barnet 4 Saturday 9th September – Luton Town 0 Swindon Town 3 Opposition player fact sheet Highest Goal Scorers; Luke Norris 4, Paul Mullin 4, Chris Hussey and Olly Lancashire 1. Persistent Foulers; Donal McDermott 1 red card, Paul Mullin 3 yellow cards, James Dunne 2 yellow cards and Ellis Landolo 2 yellow cards. The Key Players Luke Norris is a very capable goal scorer who can instantly change the outcome of a game with his style of play, he likes to attack and sit off the defenders – this allows him to find the right amount of space in order to have a shot. James Dunne is Swindon’s enforcer within the midfield, he can link play and generally cause a nuisance to the opposition defence. Ollie Lancashire is also someone Notts should do their homework on, as the defender likes to get forward as much as possible and knows how to strike the ball. Style of play, strengths, and weaknesses Swindon like to use the flanks in order to get balls into the opposition's area, at times they try to cut it back at the last minute – this creates space for their offensive players. They tend to be very direct, whilst asserting pressure as they build with momentum but are inclined to sit back and allow the opposition to attack themselves. From an attacking stance they like to get the ball in and behind the last defenders, and can mix between passing on the ground and using the wider space available to them. However, from a defensive point of view they don’t like teams being direct or patient within their own building and can be prone to giving fouls away. Free kicks and set pieces will be vital for Notts, as will ensuring that the corner pieces are not wasted. The Magpies will have to focus on getting the ball into the Swindon area so that it unnerves their defence and allows for swifter chances to come forward.

  12. Notts County have met Swindon Town on 63 occasions, the first time being 103 years ago in the FA Cup. On that day in January 1911, the Robins beat the Magpies 2-0 at the County Ground. Of the 63 clashes, 24 have been won by Notts, 27 by Swindon, and 12 have been drawn. The last meeting between the two was on 7 March 2015, away at the County Ground, and the Robins ran out 3-0 winners. The club was founded in 1879 by Reverend William Baker Pitt. Whilst curate of Christ Church, the high church of Swindon, Pitt formed Swindon Association Football Club to provide recreation for young men in his parish. Swindon won the Southern League championship in 1910-11, earning themselves a Charity Shield clash with Football League champions Manchester United. This, the highest-scoring Charity Shield game to date, was played on 25 September 1911 at Stamford Bridge with Manchester United winning 8–4! Some of the proceeds of this game were later donated to the survivors of the Titanic. During World War II, The War Department – the government body responsible for the supply of equipment to the armed forces in the UK – took over the County Ground in 1940. For a while, prisoners of war were housed in huts placed on the pitch. For this, the club received compensation of £4,570 at war’s end. Swindon Town were the first League club to use floodlights, having had them installed in 1951. The County Ground is also the only football stadium in the world with a Rolex watch acting as its timekeeper –the clock on the Stratton Bank stand featuring its name was erected to celebrate promotion in 1963. Swindon have spent one season in the top flight, in 1992-93, during which Glenn Hoddle managed them. Sadly, they didn't do too well, being relegated at the end of the season after conceding 100 goals. The most notable silverware in the Robins’ possession is undoubtedly the League Cup, won in 1969 after beating Arsenal in the final at Wembley. Royle Family and Two Pints Of Lager actor Ralf Little was rumoured to be on trial at Swindon back in 2002, though the funnyman later claimed that he was just training with the squad. Pint-sized jazz singer Jamie Cullum is also a fan of the Robins. Team news Shola Ameobi will miss Notts County's home game against Swindon after picking up a hamstring injury that forced him off after 41 minutes of Saturday's 2-0 victory over Morecambe. Jonathan Forte came on for Ameobi at the weekend and he is expected to make his first league start of the season after scoring his side's second goal against the Shrimps. Notts boss Kevin Nolan has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from as he looks to extend his side's unbeaten run to eight matches. Swindon manager David Flitcroft could name an unchanged starting line-up following a 3-0 away win over Luton Town on Saturday. John Goddard and Kyle Knoyle remain absent through injury, although the latter is expected to resume full training this week. Donal McDermott will serve the second game of the three-match ban he received for his red card against Barnet earlier this month.

  13. 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.
