McGoldrick said “It was good to finally get one, I never panic especially at this stage of my career, I know the goals will come, you just got to get in the right positions. I believe in my own quality and the way the team plays which suits me perfectly.

"I'm still learning, every day in training, I'm learning off the coach. He's probably one of the best tactically and the way he sets his team up. I've come at the age of 35, and I'm really enjoying learning from him every day.

"I feel I can bring passes and things like that to the team, it's good when it goes through, and then he has the vision to slot it through. And you know, he does what he does.

"I can't wait, it’s a huge moment for the club, being back in the EFL after four years out of the league. The first game will be special and everyone's looking forward to it. As a Notts man, I'm really looking forward to it.

"Body feels good, it's been a tough preseason, but I really enjoyed it. If you're a footballer, and you don't enjoy hard work, then you're in the wrong game, so it's good.

"The more fitter you are, the better you're going to be as a player. I'm trying to tell the young lads that and I think they'll learn from how the more experienced players look after themselves."
