The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NOTTS County de­fender El­liott Hewitt is thriv­ing in his part­ner­ship with Haydn Hol­lis at the heart of de­fence and be­lieves trust is the key to their suc­cess.

Hewitt, 22, be­lieves the un­der­stand­ing with Hol­lis, 24, is vi­tal to their solid per­for­mances in a young Mag­pies back­line.

“Haydn heads ev­ery­thing he can,” said Hewitt. “I just know, if he goes up for one, I can just tuck round. You’ve got to trust each other. We played to­gether twice last sea­son, Craw­ley and Lu­ton away.

“We kept two clean sheets then, too. It seems to be a good part­ner­ship we have.”
