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.
