Nolan delighted with his defence

Kevin Nolan is confident that Elliott Hewitt or Haydn Hollis can step in for the injured Shaun Brisley to help maintain Notts County's four straight clean sheets so far this season.

“We didn’t want to go and get someone in this summer because we knew we had Elliott and Hollis,” said the County boss.

“Elliott did a fantastic job. If Hollis had been on the bench then he would have gone and done what he’s done for me since I’ve been here.

“I’m delighted with them. We’ve got plenty of cover.

“If Bris is out for a week or two then we’ve got the resources to stay how we are.

“We knew Elliott could step in at centre half. I’m delighted with them all.

“The attitude is great. It’s that unity that gets results.”
