KEV KEEN TO PLAY IT SAFE FIRST

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

KEVIN Nolan in­sists his first aim is still avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion de­spite Notts County’s im­pres­sive start to the sea­son.

The for­mer Bolton and New­cas­tle mid­fielder took the reins at Meadow Lane in Jan­uary, but is not get­ting car­ried away with the Mag­pies win­ning five of their first seven games.

“We have to get to safety as quickly as pos­si­ble. Once we do that, we will then re­assess what we’re go­ing to do,” he said.

“We can’t start get­ting car­ried away say­ing: ‘we are go­ing to win it’ or ‘we are go­ing to get pro­moted’. We have to have re­al­is­tic am­bi­tions.

“We’re in a good place.”
