Match Report: Notts County bottom of League Two after Macclesfield Town claim all three points


Well, it's finally got to that stage. Notts County are bottom of the Football League.

Macclesfield Town, managed by one-time Magpie Sol Campbell, put in a display that overshadowed the hosts at Meadow Lane and claimed a 2-1 win which saw them leapfrog Notts off the foot of League Two.

Frankly, it's the same old story. An overall turgid display, the odd good moment following the equaliser where County looked as though they would go into the lead, only for shoddy defending to prove our downfall.

The Silkmen actually got the ball into the back of the net on 16 minutes, only for some deliberation by the officials to eventually chalk the goal off for offside.

But there wouldn't be any disputes in the 36th minute when Scott Wilson rattled home the opener, making the most of plenty of space to apply a good finish past Ross Fitzsimons.

Against the run of play, the second half did bring a leveller for Neal Ardley's side when good hustling from Jon Stead lead to Keston Davies squaring for Kane Hemmings to drive home.

But it just wouldn't be the Notts class of 2018-19 if they weren't to shoot themselves in the foot, would it?

Wilson, picked out by a teammate, once again had the freedom of the area to sweep the ball into the bottom corner of the net nine minutes from time.

Although the Silkmen saw a man sent off late on, the numerical advantage was chalked off as Davies was then shown a straight red card for firing the ball into an opposition player's face while on the ground.
