Highlights: Notts County v Yeovil Town


Kevin Nolan's Notts County successfully retained their unbeaten home record during the 'new era' at Meadow Lane during a goalless draw against Yeovil Town.

In a game with few chances for either the Magpies or travelling Yeovil Town, Jorge Grant forced a save in the opening minutes when he conneted with a clever pass from Notts winger Mark Yeates. Yeovil Town themselves struggled to create chances after showing little ambition going forward.

Despite the lack of quality from the opposition, Notts failed to trouble the visiting keeper Artur Krysiak despite further chances from Grant from set peices.

Notts continued to ask questions of Yeovil's defence early in the second half, with yet again on-loan Nottingham Forest midfielder Jorge Grant looking their best hope of a goal. The midfielder saw a deflected shot hit the side netting, before Yeates tried his luck with a close-range shot which was beaten away by Krysiak.

Yeovil Town lacked any real direct efforts which virtually left Adam Collin nothing more than a spectator.

However, Alex Lawless nearly scored late on when he placed a shot which forced the Magpies keeper to make brilliant save as he tipped it away. Leaving both sides forced to settle for a point in a drab encounter.

Not bad from the highlights, though it does not give a full picture. I would be happy with the draw and what I have seen from this. Ameobi did well to win the challenge, its a shame Stead did not shoot himself rather than passing.
