Notts County boss Martin Allen is hoping that striker Lee Hughes will sign a new deal after helping his side beat Rochdale 2-0.

Allen, who joined the Magpies from Barnet towards the end of last season, has slowly turned around the club's fortunes, and Hughes has been pivotal to that success.

He said: "When he said he wanted to stay another year, you can imagine how happy I was. The meeting is planned and hopefully something will be sorted.

"He's a great ambassador for the club, with the way he conducts himself off the pitch and how he mentors the young players.

"He doesn't do anything Monday to Friday, but he has so much belief and self confidence."
