Notts County manager Neal Ardley is not yet willing to concede the National League title.

The Magpies are currently 6th, with at least a game in hand on every side above them.

Leaders Sutton United are 12 ahead of them, having played one match more than Notts.

Speaking to the club website ahead of Tuesday’s game with Boreham Wood, Ardley said: “We’re still absolutely aiming for first place. It will be difficult with the schedule, the number of away games and the teams we have to face, but that remains our aim.

“If we had eight games to go, I might be saying the best we could achieve is top three, but we haven’t. We’ve got 20 games to play, nearly half a season.

“There are so many points to play for and I know this team’s capable of putting a run together. Full credit to Sutton – they’ve been on an unbelievable run of wins – and Wrexham and Hartlepool are in good form, but other than that everyone’s a bit up and down.”
