Match Report: Notts County humbled in FA Cup by rampant Barnsley


Another weekend, another completely dispiriting Notts County performance that leaves you feeling deflated.

Although the Magpies were not expected to win against Barnsley - a team currently sitting fourth in the League One table - in the FA Cup, they were at least expected to put up a fight.

And to a degree they did, as they hung on to their clean sheet until the break, and in the second minute they even got the ball into the back of the net, only for Rob Milsom's free kick to be chalked off for offside.

But the Tykes did begin getting into their stride during the first half and, shortly after the restart, they managed to break the deadlock.

On 48 minutes, Fulham loanee Cauley Woodrow latched onto Cameron McGeehan's through ball - Elliott Ward effectively helped the ball on its way - and volleyed home after getting beyond Jamie Turley.

It was 2-0 five minutes later in the 53rd minute when the hosts efficiently switched the ball from left to right and a low cross from Brad Potts was slotted home from inside the area by full-back Zeki Fryers.

Brad Potts went close to converting Kieffer Moore's low cross in a let-off for Notts before the pair combined again and this time the former tapped home from inside the six-yard area for game, set and match.

By this point the Black and White Army had all but given up hope of even forcing a replay and the final nail in the coffin came on 81 minutes as Moore added a fourth, nodding home a left-wing cross from two yards out.

But hey, at least we can concentrate on the league, right?!
