Nolan: First half hour crucial

nolanKevin Nolan believes we can take three points from Leicester this afternoon but reckons them first half an hour will be crucial.

Speaking to the official site ahead of the game he said: “I’m sure it’s going to be a tough game today but it’s one we’re thoroughly looking forward to and want to take three points from.

“The main thing is we have been in the situation Leicester and other teams are in, and we know they’ll be fighting for their lives as the games are running out for them thick and fast.

“We’ve got to make sure we’re as up for it as them and we can go out there and express ourselves and play with freedom.

“If we can keep them quiet for 20 minutes or half an hour, hopefully their fans will feel some anxiety and that will translate to them on the pitch and we can take advantage of that.”

  1. Does Nolaninho play since the beginning? Great, so the show is guaranteed…

  2. Yes Matt,Nolan is playing of course.Pity Amalifitano or Nene couldnt get a go though.Too much to ask of Dinosaur i guess.

  3. Nolan was so correct 30 mins 1-0 down and they miss a pen,
    32 mins 1-1 thanks to Kouyate
    Nolan how wrong could you be you are BFS,s boy for sure
    Nolan hing changes.

  4. Thing not hing
    No subs needed at half time for us we look so good

  5. DAD takes boy off just so he does not take the blame,
    But before they score we look a better team with 5 chances 3 on target and hit the post,
    DAD swaps top goal scorer for single forward proberly fatigue,
    BFS you are sad please leave


  7. Can somebody explain to me Why we again play better when we’re down? would love to see Nene play more guy has skills
