Ahead of the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend, Alan Sheehan was reminded that should he play – or should that be if the game goes ahead with the weather – he would be making his 100th league appearance for Notts County since signing for us in 2011.

Having already broken the 100 starts and appearances milestone across all competitions, thanks to 98 starts and one sub so far, the Wolves game would be his 100th league turn out for County, and of course the next match will be his 100th league start for County.

These things don’t usually come all at once!

Speaking to the Official Site our stand in skipper joked that he felt ‘old’ when told what the Wolves game would signify because he couldn’t believe the time had gone that quickly.

‘To cap off the 100th league game with three points would be brilliant. If I could nick another goal, sound, but as long as we get the three points – that’s very important.’

For the game itself, Sheehan admits that few people would be putting their money on us to cause an upset, but for him that’s perfect as it means we just have to go there, stay tight and compact, and in attack we can play with freedom because we have nothing to lose and the pressure won’t be on us.

If we can rattle them and get the crowd twitchy all the more better.

With 15 games left and a potential 45 points up for offer with an aim of reaching 50 points in the league table (County sit on 30), Sheehan knows we must reach that target as quickly as possible and there would be no better way of starting a run like that than coming out with a good result this weekend to build on the Coventry victory.
