Sky Bet League Two

‘I wouldn’t bet against them!’, ‘They can 100% win the league’ – Can Notts County seal the League Two title?



Notts County currently sit top of the Sky Bet League Two table.

It’s been a sensational start for Kevin Nolan’s men, who’ve amassed 25 points from 11 league games so far this season.

But have they got what it takes to maintain their top spot for the duration of the season?

The writers here at Football League World have had their say…

Notts County have started the League Two season magnificently, with Kevin Nolan’s side looking to rise through the Football League with promotion to League One.

County’s 25 points from 11 fixtures sees them level with Exeter City at the top of the table, despite dispatching their rivals convincingly last month. Continuing good form against their nearest rivals is something they will need to do if they are to gain automatic promotion.

Jorge Grant is key to any promotion push, and if the midfielder can continue his impressive form, County should be knocking on the door of League One in May.

I wouldn’t bet against them!

What a job Kevin Nolan is doing at County this season.

Top of the league and showing no signs of slowing down, the Magpies looked destined for a return to League One.

Devastating going forward, solid at the back – can anyone stop the side from Meadow Lane marching towards the title?

It will be a big ask. County will certainly grab one of the three automatic spots this season – fans will certainly take that – but the title would be the icing on the cake.

There are other sides better equipped to win the league than Notts County. However, the Magpies can expect to be in the mix for the play-offs come May.

Kevin Nolan has done a remarkable job at Meadow Lane and their home form under the ex-Bolton player is insane. There’s a long way to go but they are scoring goals and deservedly top the league.

However, they don’t have the quality to match the likes of Luton and Mansfield who will be fighting out for the title, but it can still be a memorable season for Nolan’s men.

They can 100% win the league.

The Magpies have a very good chance of winning League 2 and I think it’ll be them, Coventry or Luton that take the title in the end.

Kevin Nolan has done a superb job of getting the side into title challenging shape and they have one of the best players in the division in Jorge Grant who’s in fine form.

They’re the title favourites for now, too, and it might only be Nolan’s lack of managerial experience that costs them at the business end – though there’s no suggestion he’s feeling under pressure right now.
