ARLukomski on Notts v Cambridge: "157 years and out"


It's now getting seriously concerning at Meadow Lane as Notts County have now slipped six points from safety after losing 1-0 to Cambridge United on Saturday.

Despite a bumper crowd at the San Sirrel and an opponent in the lower reaches of League Two, the Magpies once again failed to put up a good enough fight, and a record of four wins from 28 games has relegation written all over it.

Notts weren't at the races for much of the first half, although Kristian Dennis came close to opening the scoring with a shot on the turn from Elliott Hewitt's delivery midway through.

However, they fell behind on 41 minutes when Greg Taylor rose to meet George Maris’s corner at the back post and headed across goal beyond the reach of debutant goalkeeper Ryan Schofield.

Neal Ardley's side threatened on the stroke of half time, though, when Jim O’Brien’s long-range effort was tipped around the post by U's stopper David Forde.

The best chance for the hosts came in the second half when Dennis connected with Cedric Evina's delivery but the ball rolled right across the goalline, and that was pretty much it as Colin Calderwood's side held out for the win.

Pride of Nottingham vlogger ARLukomski was at Meadow Lane and documented his pre, mid and post-match thoughts.

Painful watch yesterday for sure , share your pain , kind of agree with your summary also , it’s not over by any means, but despair is setting in , still January, how many can we shed ? How many can we recruit? Who would want to join ? How some of those players get the shirt week in week out is beyond me , managerial changes through the season but in the main same players picked , until that is significantly changed and 3 is not near enough, defeats will send us down . Other players at the club should be able to stake a claim for the shirt , why haven’t they been given a chance ? Can only guess but must be viewed as not good enough by who ever has been in  charge throughout the season , the recruitment in the summer , while exciting additions came it lacked balance, fitness has been an issue constantly hence so many injuries. 

Can we put it behind us and get the required points ???? Looking more and more like a relegation season , my real fear is we can’t .
