Assistant manager looks ahead to Notts County test

More than 4,000 Pompey fans are making the journey to Notts County on Easter Monday.

And there is a chance of them enjoying a promotion party at Meadow Lane if the Blues emerge victorious.

For that to happen, Luton would also have to drop points in their away clash with play-off hopefuls Mansfield.

And Leam Richardson knows what it would mean to the supporters if their side cross the finishing line.

Pompey’s assistant manager said: “The lads have been working hard towards the same goal that the fans are looking for.

“We’ve got a good squad, a good manager and a good backroom staff, so hopefully we’ll get the points we need.

“It would mean everything for the people in this city, so we’ll do everything we possibly can to make it happen for them.

“There are still plenty of points to play for, but as long as you put in the effort then I think you get what you deserve.”

Notts County have nothing but pride to play for, although they have dropped just two points from their past five fixtures.

Richardson said: “It’s going to be a tough game against a very good team and Kevin Nolan always sets his sides up very well.

“We’ll have to work every bit as hard as we did against Plymouth on Friday if we want to get the result we’re looking for.

“I was lucky enough to play for Notts County and they’ve got some great people at the club, so hopefully I’ll enjoy my return there.”
