Notts County have taken another giant step towards sealing a League Two playoff place with a 3-1 win at Colchester United.
The U's had taken the lead after just nine minutes through Drey Wright at the Weston Homes Community Stadium before John McGreal’s side hit the post early after the break.
However, the Magpies stormed back in the second half as Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy sealed a memorable comeback for Kevin Nolan's side.
Tom Eastman hit the post for Colchester but Notts hung on to claim a comeback victory that sees them sit four points off the automatic promotion spots
Here is some of the post-match reaction from the events in Essex.
"We had a few choice words at half-time. I just feel we didn't match the high standards we set last week.
"I challenged them to get back to that level as quickly as possible and show the togetherness, character and spirit they've shown all season.
"We were lucky to get in at 1-0 but I thought the goals we scored were fantastic and they came at the right time.
"The lads' character was absolutely brilliant in the second half and I thought we were well-deserved winners."
“We were not good in the first half to say the least and we didn’t do what we were told to do.
“We have instructions and things on the board which tells us what we need to do to win games and we didn’t do any of it.
“They hit the post early doors in the second half but apart from that and when we scored the goal, there was only going to be one team who won it.
“I’ve seen the manager angrier but he said what he thought and I don’t think anybody could disagree with him.
“He walked out and the lads got together and had a quick chat. We got some more instructions and gladly we came out and put in a performance.
“We had intent, we got it forward and we won a lot more second balls. The back four got up and in the first half we didn’t do that.
“They found pockets and were playing through us and big Adam Collin made a fantastic save to keep it at 1-0.
“If you are not playing well being a goal down allows you to regroup at half-time and you go again. That’s what we did and we scored three good goals.”
