Notts County leave it too late as Accrington Stanley survive late blitz

Joe Jones

Notts County battled bravely in the second half of their League Two game at Accrington Stanley but could not undo the damage from the first half as the match ended 3-2 to John Coleman's side.

The hosts took the lead after just 13 minutes when Billy Kee rifled the ball inside Roy Carroll's right-hand post from 30 yards out.

Just eight minutes later Stanley doubled their lead, with a cross from the right falling kindly to Romuald Boco, who made no mistake with an unmarked header.

It looked like game over just after the restart as Boco added a third after a long ball forward was flicked on and prompted a calamitous mix-up in the Notts back line – the Benin international looped it over Carroll and rifled home on the line.

Jamie Fullarton’s charges, however, were able to get onto the scoresheet when substitute Ronan Murray got onto the ball and made the most of indecision from the Stanley back line to slot home comfortably.

With just ten minutes to go, the hosts were made to sweat as Notts struck again, this time through Adam Campbell, another sub, as he lashed in from the edge of the box.

However, it proved too little too late as Stanley were able to withstand their opponents and clinch all three points come the final whistle.

If only we had started off brighter, still it's a lose and I worry about what that will result in. I'm pleased we shown enough to get 2 back but we should never have gone 3-0 down. This team really does need to start learning, whilst Fullarton may learn from his changes.

Good to see Murray and Campbell score! COYP!!

Just shocking to see the score at half time!

Credit for the two goals but thats it. Not remotely good enough, soon the away form will be as bad as his home record.
