Notts County back on track in superb win over Forest Green


Finally, FINALLY Notts County have put in a display worthy of the fans' time and money AND yielded a great result. Could this be another formative step in the Greatest Escape?

The Magpies went to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday for a tricky-seeming League Two fixture and left the New Lawn with all three points courtesy of a 2-1 win.

Notts began brightly against the side managed by their former boss Mark Cooper as Nottingham Forest loanee Virgil Gomis forced FGR keeper Mark Lewis into a save early on.

Enzio Boldewijn put in a superb display as he weighed in with efforts and set up Gomis for an effort which bundled the side netting, though the first half finished all level.

The breakthrough came in the second half when Jim O'Brien made the most of a poorly cleared delivery to send a half-volley into the back of the Rovers net.

Although the hosts drew level through a good Joseph Mills free kick on the edge of the box, Boldewijn delivered a moment of magic  when he picked up a Lewis Alessandra pass and drove into the top corner.
