Nickname: Magpies

Founded: 1862

Ground: Meadow Lane

Manager: Luke Williams

Top Scorer: Macaulay Langstaff (24)

League Position: 1st


Recent Result: Chesterfield 1 – 2 Notts County


One to watch: Macaulay Langstaff


Langstaff is the Nottingham based side’s top scorer for the 22/23 campaign so far, contributing to 32% of the teams total tally for the season.


The centre-forward has scored an impressive 24 goals so far this season, averaging a goal every 100 minutes.  


The Stockton-on-Tees born man’s performances have very much made him the first name on the team sheet, with the player featuring in the starting XI 29 times so far this season. The striker has played 2,400 minutes of football so far this season, meaning he has featured in 87% of all possible minutes so far this campaign.


If Brennan’s men want to bring all 3 points back home to The Hive, they will need to ensure Langstaff is defended expertly and not given a sniff of goal.


In the dugout: Luke Williams


Following a short playing career in non-league football, Williams began coaching as an FA Skills Coach and moved onto work with youth set-ups at the likes of Leyton Orient and West Ham United.


Following his spell at West Ham, Williams became a development coach for Brighton and Hove Albion in 2010. During his 3 years at the club, Williams was placed in charge of the u21 team and the reserve team.


In 2013, at the end of his 3 year stint on the south coast, Williams made a move to Swindon Town where he would join as assistant manager. In 2015, following the departure of the head coach, Williams was made caretaker manager before later being named as the club’s head coach.


Since then, Williams has been at Bristol City, MK Dons, Swansea City and now finds himself at Notts County who sit at the top of the National League.
