Shambolic Notts County torn apart by Exeter City

Joe Jones

Notts County's season continues to go from bad to worse as Exeter City came to Meadow Lane and left with a 4-1 win, the Magpies defence being torn apart time and time again.

The Grecians took the lead after just seven minutes when a cross was floated expertly into the path of Jayden Stockley, who nodded past Scott Loach to make it 1-0.

Groans came from the Notts faithful as it appeared to be more of the same, but the Magpies worked their way back into the game as Liam Noble came close twice 25 minutes in.

County’s scoring duck was finally broken 35 minutes in, when Jon Stead’s cross was smashed home by Izale McLeod at the second attempt to pull his side level.

The hosts began the second half well enough, with Stead rattling the bar with a 20-yard shot, but by the midway point of the second half Exeter were in front again, with substitue Jake Taylor racing clear and slotting under Loach.

Jamie Fullarton's side collapsed thereafter, as Christian Ribeiro added a third and nearly scored again a minute after kickoff, and the rout was confirmed with a fourth Grecian goal from Ollie Watkins.

Very frustrating to see us pull level, only to end the game in this style. People won't say it, yet I am proud of the fans who stood clapping and I felt bad about not being able to cheer some who was visibly 'upset' when they spoke to me.
