Terry Hawkridge has echoed Kevin Nolan's sentiments in hailing Notts County's 4-1 win over Lincoln City as a display of a team at the top of their game. The Magpies took the lead in the 39th minute through Jon Stead and, even though Harry Anderson grabbed an equaliser for the Imps, further goals from Matt Tootle, Jorge Grant and Hawkridge sealed an impressive win in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. "We knew it was going to be a tough game because Lincoln are a good team," Hawkridge told the official Notts website. "We showed our class in the second half and got the goals we needed. "We used the sending off to our strengths and we moved the ball well in the second half. We tired them out and the goals came. "They were all good goals. For a right back, it's a great finish from Toots and Jorge probably shouldn't be scoring a free-kick from there but he's put it right in the top corner! Steady's was a good finish, too. "It's a good win but it's still early doors and we have to now focus on the Exeter game on Tuesday night. "It's going well but we're only nine games into the season. We have a long way to go and we just need to keep building on what we've been doing."

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!"
