Match: Notts Country vs Coventry Competition: England – League One Time / Date: 21:45h / 18 May 2018 Venue: Meadow Lane Stadium
Mark McNulty’s goal gave Coventry a chance for this match, but certainly the advantage of away goals is for Notts County. The goal with which the Sky Blues cut the result was a nonexistent penalty, but the result matches the game.
Striker McNulty’s and midfielder Tom Bayliss are the main problems for the Magpies, but they will be motivated to stop them. Kevin Nolan must balance those two responsibilities carefully, but this is very much unchartered territory for the ex-midfielder; the know-how of the more experienced Mark Robins, along with Coventry captain Michael Doyle, might come to the fore.

Notts County won six and drew two of eight home outings against the Sky Blues who are yet to clinch their maiden victory at Meadow Lane.
Most teams do not manage when they play Meadow Lane, County did not lose a single of last nine home meetings and a goalless draw would push them through to the promotional final, meaning we don’t expect Kevin Nolan to risk out with the attacking formation here.
