Match Report: Notts County edge further away from drop zone with win at Plymouth Argyle

Joe Jones

Notts County have taken another massive step in the battle against relegation after coming away from a tricky midweek fixture at Plymouth Argyle with all three points.

On-loan Nottingham Forest midfielder Jorge Grant bagged his third goal in four games to seal a 1-0 win for Kevin Nolan's side, who now sit eight points clear of the League Two drop zone following their heroics at Home Park.

Grant scored the winner in the 21st minute after a defensive mix-up caused by Yann Songo'o's underhit backpass saw goalkeeper Luke McCormick try to scramble clear under pressure from Jonathan Forte.

The ball broke to Sonny Bradley, who should have cleared his lines, but he dithered and Grant nipped in front of him, striding forward before placing his shot into the bottom corner of the net.

In first half stoppage-time, Grant should have claimed his second of the game but fired wide from 10 yards after his initial strike was bravely blocked by right-back Oscar Threlkeld.

The Pilgrims nearly pulled one back at the start of the second half, but Ryan Taylor's spectacular volley was tipped over by Notts stopper Adam Collin.

In the 65th minute, Jon Stead headed wide from Marc Bola's deep cross into the six-yard box, while 10 minutes from time, Plymouth substitute Jordan Slew volleyed over Collin's poor punch landed at his feet.

Good things come to those who wait, want it and work hard. So pleased for Notts! After the last three years, we deserve a little something to celebrate and I hope we can soon safety say we are a League Two team next season.

What doesn't break you only makes you stronger and all that stuff.
