For Notts County and Coventry City, tonights encounter is massive in terms of their promotion hopes. Kevin Nolan’s men were in firm control of the first leg at the Ricoh Arena as they maintained a 1-0 lead as they looked to take that one-goal advantage into the home leg at Meadow Lane.

But, Coventry City cancelled out Jonathan Forte’s first half goal as a controversial penalty was awarded three minutes from time as Marc McNulty converted the spot kick. Notts County were left aggrieved at the decision from the referee as Matt Tootle was adjudged to have fouled Coventry’s Matt Baylis despite Tootle playing the ball.


A disappointed Kevin Nolan (above) spoke to BBC Nottingham following the final whistle :

It was a massive mistake. The lad who jumped up was laughing.

“It was a fantastic performance. I thought we handled the conditions really well.

“We were fantastic to a man and would have merited the win. If we had been asked before about going back to Meadow Lane with a point, we would have taken it.

“But I can’t hide the disappointment I feel sick because 1-0 would have been a fantastic result and it is taken away by the referee.” – Kevin Nolan

As for the line-ups, the team selection for both sides will be pretty much unchanged with the exception of Coventry City defender Tom Davies who’s currently serving a three-match ban for a stamp on Notts County’s Richard Duffy during the first leg at the Ricoh Arena.


Bookmakers Odds :

Notts County – 17/10

Draw – 12/5

Coventry City – 9/5
