Kevin Nolan wants the Magpies to remain calm in the battle for promotion

“There was a fair bit of anxiety,” Nolan said.

“We’ve got to make sure we try to stay cool, calm and collected and I thought we did.

“They really stuck to what was asked of them.

“There are going to be moments when you hear a little groan in the crowd and I just thought they handled it fantastically well given where we’ve been in the last few weeks.

“The more you handle it, the more you can play in that environment and then the confidence and quality will come out.”
