The Magpies manager says his squad will have part to play in League 2 finish

“Shola was feeling his hamstring and we took the decision not to bring him to the game at the weekend,” Nolan said.

 “Hopefully he will be available for Tuesday. Shaun Brisley was back on the bench and it shows the strength in depth of the squad that we can leave out somebody of Terry Hawkridge’s quality.

 “He has been such an important member and still is an important member of our squad going forward.

 “We have a great squad to choose from and not only am I worried about what 11 I am picking, it’s also about what seven I then choose from the rest.

 “We have to make sure we have all bases covered.

 “They’ve just got to make sure they stay with us in terms of their attitude, because there are plenty more opportunities from now until the end of the season when they are going to have to step up.”
