Meet the Fans: Notts County 2-1 Barnet, Saturday 14 October 2017


Notts County have moved back to the top of League Two thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 win over Barnet on Saturday.

Kevin Nolan's men went ahead after 16 minutes when Shola Ameobi headed a Rob Milsom corner towards goal and Shaun Brisley forced the ball home.

Seven minutes into the second half, Matt Tootle beat his marker with a Cruyff turn and crossed for Ryan Yates, who glanced in his first league goal of the season.

Barnet, however, kept plugging away and set up a nervy finish when Simeon Akinola rifled beyond substitute keeper Ross Fitzsimons inside the far post with seven minutes remaining.

Notts managed to hold on to their goal advantage until the final whistle and the result sees them leapfrog Exeter City to return to the summit of the table.

Pride of Nottingham was at Meadow Lane for the game and interviewed a number of fans ahead of kickoff, asking them several questions including what they thought of Liam Noble's return to Notts County, the team's problem areas, and whether the Magpies have been overachieving at present.
