Jon Nolan post Scunthorpe

18 March 2018

Jon Nolan’s second half equaliser helped Town on their way to a two goal comeback, securing all three points against Scunthorpe United away at Glanford Park, despite the tough conditions.

Town now sit in second in the Sky bet League One and Nolan was pleased his team got the important win, he said: “We were on the front foot, winning tackles and playing to the conditions better in the second half.

“It’s a massive result, we can’t deny that, they’re our rivals in the play-offs.

“We’re three points closer to our own target, which is to go up automatically, we don’t want the play-offs, we’re going to fight until the very end to finish in that top two.”

Nolan was also pleased at how his side battled through the tough snowy conditions: “It was a bit of a nightmare to be honest, I was struggling to see at times.

“We had no excuses, we played the conditions well, we were better in the second half, but there’s no excuses from us, we got the three points.” He added.

The central midfielder was also pleased he managed to get on the score sheet, he said: “I can’t even remember the goal to be honest, I remember playing a one two and finding my self one on one and slotting it home.”

Nolan also praised the following fans who made the difficult two hour journey to Scunthorpe, he said: “ It’s our fifth win away from home in a row, we are different class away from home and the fans follow us everywhere.

“If I was them, I would have been sat at home today with a cup of tea, so fair play to them.”

Town’s next game is away against Northampton Town at Sixfields Stadium on Tuesday night.
