Kevin Nolan is getting ready for weekend game against Carlisle

“I said to the players that teams are giving them the respect they deserve,” he said.

“Why that is happening is because of what they have achieved so far.

“But I told them what they have to do now is raise their levels. They have to keep to their standard and go higher again.

“And I keep saying to people that these players have certainly got it in them to do it.”
