  1. Notts County survived a late scare to move back to the top of League Two with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Barnet at Meadow Lane on Saturday. The Magpies went ahead on the quarter-hour mark when Shola Ameobi headed a Rob Milsom corner towards goal and Shaun Brisley made sure of the ball going into the back of the net from point-blank range. Notts then doubled their advantage seven minutes into the second half when Matt Tootle crossed for Ryan Yates, who headed home for his first league goal of the season. Kevin Nolan's charges pressed for a third, Jorge Grant belting over from close range before Jon Stead fired the ball into the back of the net only to be thwarted by the offside flag. The hosts then endured a nervy finish when Simeon Akinola drove inside the far post with seven minutes remaining, but were able to see the game out to leapfrog Exeter City up to top spot. ARLukomski, a Notts vlogger and Pride of Nottingham contributor, discussed the fixture ahead of kickoff, gave his thoughts as the game went on, and talked about the performance and result after the final whistle.

  2. 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 substitute Simeon Akinola rifled beyond Ross Fitzsimons - who came on for the injured Adam Collin - inside the far post with seven minutes remaining.

  3. Kevin Nolan has claimed that Notts County are still a team in transition despite reclaiming top spot in League Two with a 2-1 win over Barnet on Saturday. Goals from Shola Ameobi and Ryan Yates gave the Magpies a healthy advantage, although it proved a nervy ending to the game after Simeon Akinola's late strike at Meadow Lane. "You have to ride your luck a bit," Nolan told the official website. "You only have to look at the results from around the league this afternoon to see how difficult it is. "We dealt with Barnet superbly but we have a lot more to come. We have to remember where we've come from. We're still a team in transition. "The lads have been superb and they have to keep believing in each other. What we're doing at the minute is remarkable and they deserve every pat on the back that's coming their way. "To get this win is massive after the last couple of weeks. Hopefully we can build momentum with a few more. I have faith in these lads to get us the points we need. "But we can't let them get carried away with that. They need to enjoy it, embrace it and try to get better so we can become a real force in this league."

  4. Notts County and Barnet have met 17 times over the years. The head to head stands at 9 wins for Notts, 5 for Barnet, and 3 draws. The first meeting took place only 20 years ago, the Magpies winning 2-1 at Underhill in Division 3. The last fixture took place in March this year, Notts winning 1-0 at Meadow Lane. The club was founded in Chipping Barnet, then part of Hertfordshire, in 1888. Several incarnations of the club existed before the third Barnet FC, created after the First World War, came to be - this entity continues till today. Barnet have won the Football Conference a record three times - in 1991, 2005, and 2015, as well as finishing second three other times. Aside from a runners-up medal in the 1971-72 FA Trophy, their silverware cabinet is restricted to minor trophies. A number of Barnet players have gone on to represent Premier League clubs. They include Dougie Freedman, Marlon King, Andy Clarke, Linvoy Primus, Maik Taylor, Mark Gower, Jason Puncheon, Yannick Bolasie and Albert Adomah. Players who came to the club towards the end of their careers include Jimmy Greaves, Mark Lawrenson, David Hillier, Alan Pardew, Eddie Newton, Paul Warhurst, Steve Kabba, John Oster, Jonathan Fortune, Edgar Davids and Lee Cook. Team news Shola Ameobi is fit again for Notts and is in contention for a return to the starting line-up. The likes of Lewis Alessandra, Elliott Hewitt, Haydn Hollis and Nicky Hunt could also be considered by Kevin Nolan. Midfielder Liam Walker is available again after missing the home draw with Forest Green while on international duty with Gibraltar. Dan Jones has been struggling with a hamstring injury in recent weeks, missing the last three matches, and Nolan will hope to have the left-back back in contention again soon. Barnet top-scorer Shaq Coulthirst will be assessed ahead of the trip to Meadow Lane. The forward, who has six league goals, has been struggling with a hamstring problem and missed last weekend's goalless draw with Coventry. Bees boss Rossi Eames has no fresh injury concerns but remains without a host of key players. Goalkeeper Jamie Stephens, left-back Elliott Johnson, midfielder Curtis Weston and forward Dave Tarpey remain out, along with defender Richard Brindley and striker John Akinde.

  5. We're just over a quarter of the season through and Notts County continue to sit nicely in the top three of League Two. However, alarm bells have started ringing ever so slightly as the Magpies have made a hash of their last two games, losing at Mansfield and scraping a draw with Forest Green. Another weekend, another chance. Up next are Barnet, another seemingly "winnable" game, but of course Notts need to take caution given their blip. In this article, Chris provides the lowdown on Saturday's opponents. History Notts County and Barnet have met 17 times over the years. The head to head stands at 9 wins for Notts, 5 for Barnet, and 3 draws. The first meeting took place only 20 years ago, the Magpies winning 2-1 at Underhill in Division 3. The last fixture took place in March this year, Notts winning 1-0 at Meadow Lane. Run-down of their last six fixtures Tuesday 12th September – Barnet 1 Exeter City 2 Saturday 16th September – Carlisle United 1 Barnet 1 Saturday 23rd September – Barnet 1 Crawley Town 2 Tuesday 26th September – Lincoln City 2 Barnet 1 Saturday 30th September – Wycombe Wanderers 3 Barnet 1 Saturday 7th October – Barnet 0 Coventry City 0 The Players – Fact Sheet Highest Goal Scorers: Shaquile Coulthirst 8, Mauro Vilhete 4, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro 3 and Jamal Campbell-Ryce 2. Persistent Foulers: Jack Taylor 1 red card and 2 yellow cards, Andre Blackman 1 red card, Dabid Tutonda 3 yellow cards and Jamal Campbell-Ryce 2 yellow cards. The Key Players Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Shaquile Coulthirst are technically two very good strikers within League Two, both offer the Bees a lot of pace and direct threat. Shaq is a former Spurs academy product, and at the age of 22-years-old he has a wealth of league experience already. On the wing Barnet have former Magpie Jamal Campbell-Ryce, who on his day can turn defences inside out – if he releases the ball rather than repeatedly stepping over the ball. And Andre Blackman can be a rock within the Bees defence, whilst doubling up as a midfielder further up the field. Blackman has a lot of pace and likes to take on the opposition at every given chance available to him. Style of Play, Strengths, and Weaknesses Despite their current league position, Barnet are a very good football club within League Two. They have one of the most talented squads within the division in terms of quality and prospect, and can attack teams with a lot of style and confidence. Whilst retaining the ball they aren’t afraid to enter limited ground and have the ability to work the ball around nicely – in my previous Scouting Report I mentioned how FGR have a very good midfield and Barnet have one much stronger. Their physical players will be able to get a grip of the game, and attempt to control the tempo. They can move between channels, switching between the centre of the park and revert onto the flanks where they have good wingers available to whip in the ball. Defensively they are switched on, and are well organised but can be sloppy if pressed. Part of their main issue so far during the 2017-18 League Two seasons, is when they commit men forward and leave themselves wide open to counter attacks. Set pieces is another variability, however they have several tall and physical players that aren’t easily intimidated. Yet if the ball bounces a few times, pressure can be assert due to their inability to deal with this type of threat. Notts will have to use the centre of the park wisely, whilst ensuring each Barnet player is man marked rather than relying on zonal marking. If we can assert a calm passing game the confidence within the match will only grow in confidence – as previously mentioned free-kicks and corners will be paramount towards creating good chances.

  6. Notts County have had a bit of a downturn in form, with their derby defeat at Mansfield Town followed up by a woeful performance against Forest Green Rovers that ended up as a draw by sheer miracle. The Magpies will hopefully have regrouped over the last seven days as another relatively winnable game awaits, a home encounter with Barnet. Although the Bees are not exactly setting League Two on fire, neither were FGR, and look how that turned out, so here's hoping Notts will have gone back to basics and got themselves back up to scratch. Pride of Nottingham spoke to Barnet fan Dan to get an insight on Saturday's opposition. About Dan: I'm in my 20s, been a Bees fan since 2005, and my favourite player is John Akinde. 1) London famously boasts 12 clubs in the Premier League and Football League - who are your biggest rivals? Historically our fiercest rivals were Enfield, while Wealdstone are our current main enemies. In terms of league encounters, any match between ourselves and other London teams tend to have a bit extra spice, but it's just us at present from London in the league. Closest thing this season would be Luton but we don't really see them as proper rivals. 2) What was it like when legendary midfielder Edgar Davids became manager of your club? At first it was pretty surreal, to see such a world-famous player rock up to Underhill and take the reins, and he did pretty well at first, though we ended up going down on the final day due to our woeful start-of-season form. In the Conference, his relationship with the fans became strained as it seemed like he was hogging the limelight and, with the team pretty much out of contention for the playoffs by January, he resigned. Started well, ended sour, but was definitely a memorable experience. 3) Martin Allen is remembered fondly at Meadow Lane - what do you think of him at the Hive? On one hand he has given Barnet some good times - in his last spell (fourth) with the club, he took an average Conference side and turned them into champions within a year and left with the club in the top 10 of League Two. On the other hand, he did ditch us for Eastleigh, who were waving their chequebook, and just days before leaving, he sold one of our key players to them - ironically, neither of them were at their new club for very long! 4) Looking from the outside in, Tony Kleanthous seems like a very involved, hands-on chairman. What's he like? No complaints about him whatsoever. He's been a very good chairman for Barnet over the years, has kept us financially stable, invests in the club, and in terms of managerial appointments, has a decent record. 5) Who are your danger men? Shaq Coulthirst has had a great start for us, with six goals and three assists so far in the league and was voted the Player of the Month. Then there's John Akinde, who has scored over 20 goals in each of the last two seasons in League Two and he's back from injury now, so once he hits top form again, he'll be dangerous. 6) Score and scorer prediction I'm hoping we can pounce on County's recent poor form and claim a win. I'll say 2-1 to Barnet, Coulthirst brace.

  7. Kevin Nolan has hailed "another great team performance" by Notts County in their 1-0 win over Barnet, adding that they reacted well after Mark Yeates's early red card. Matt Tootle's second-half goal proved the difference between the two sides at Meadow Lane on Sunday, but the Magpies were made to work for it after Yeates was controversially sent off. Nolan told the OS: "It was another great team performance. If anything, the red card sparked us into life - the reaction from the lads was fantastic. "I thought if anyone was going to go on and score again it would be us. The lads stuck together and everything you want from your team was on show today. "What we have to do now is follow it up with another win. We've been up and down and that’s something we need to sort out. “We’re not safe yet, I’ll keep saying that, but we’re looking up and we have brought a group of teams closer towards us." Nolan also praised the owner, saying: "I think what Alan Hardy has done is brilliant. There were another 7,000 here today and I think they got their money’s worth. "Alan has done so well off the field, getting the embargo lifted and enabling us bring in six players. "At this minute in time it’s about taking it game by game, getting as many points on the board as quickly as possible and getting to safety. "Then we can talk about moving forward and starting the adventure Alan and I believe we can take this club on."

  8. Ten-man Notts County took another step towards League Two safety as Matt Tootle's first goal for the club secured a 1-0 win over Barnet at Meadow Lane on Sunday. The Magpies had a man sent off after just 11 minutes when Mark Yeates was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Ricardo Almeida Santos. Although at a disadvantage, Notts managed to create chances with Marc Bola going close on two occasions from distance. The breakthrough eventually arrived in the second half when Jorge Grant teed up Tootle, who lashed a superb finish past Benjamin Buchel. Notts County's official website has put up the match highlights - see Tootle's goal for yourself, and also see whether Yeates deserved to be sent off.

  9. Matt Tootle is optimist that a "strange season" for Notts County can end on a high note after moving 11 points clear of the League Two drop zone. The Magpies put in an immense performance to claim a 1-0 win over Barnet at Meadow Lane on Sunday, Tootle scoring a second-half winner. Kevin Nolan's charges were visibly exhausted at the end of the game, having been a man down for most of the game after Mark Yeates was sent off early on by referee Keith Stroud. Tootle told the official Notts site: “I’ve scored a few in the league but that’s my first one in a while. "It was a good first one for Notts and, the way the game went with us only having 10 men, I think it was a great time to get it. I was made up to get the goal. "Driving here today I knew how important the three points were for us and I’m over the moon with how it’s gone. “Of course we aren’t mathematically safe and, although teams down the bottom are struggling to win also, we aren’t resting on our laurels until we're fully safe. "The gaffer has been really putting us through our paces in training. The work we are doing at the moment has set us up for the busy schedule - we are fitter than we were two months ago and I felt we looked like the team with 11 men at the end today. “As a defender you want clean sheets and even today with ten men we looked really organised and strong as a unit. That’s testament to the gaffer coming in and doing the work with the lads. “We want to finish as best as we can. If we can win another five or six this season, which we are more than capable of doing, we can end what has been a strange season on a high note."

  10. Notts County's revival continues to gather pace as the League Two relegation zone is now 11 points away, thanks to the Magpies claiming a 1-0 win over Barnet on Sunday despite falling down to ten men early in the Meadow Lane encounter. With just 11 minutes on the clock, Mark Yeates was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Ricardo Almeida Santos that referee Keith Stroud deemed worthy of a sending-off. The Notts fans in the stands could have been forgiven for expecting the worst, but Kevin Nolan's charges did not let their numerical disadvantage get to them. Barnet striker John Akinde then tried to win a penalty minutes later when he appeared to be hauled down by Notts goalkeeper Adam Collin, only to be booked for simulation. The hosts managed to create chances with Marc Bola going close on two occasions from distance, and at the break, the deadlock had not yet been broken. It would get better for the Magpies early in the second half as Jorge Grant teed up Matt Tootle, who lashed a superb finish past Benjamin Buchel for his first goal in black and white. Barnet fought back in a bid to claim an equaliser and could have levelled when substitute Ruben Bover Izquierdo blazed over from eight yards. With the game stretched, Grant could have got himself on the scoresheet when he raced onto a fine Shola Ameobi pass, but he curled wide, though ultimately it did not matter.

  11. Notts County and Barnet have met each other just 16 times over the years. The first fixture came on 1 November 1997, with the Magpies earning a 2-1 away win in Division Three, while the last fixture was on 26 November 2016, a 3-2 defeat at The Hive. Notts have eight wins against the Bees, with five defeats and three draws. The club was founded in Chipping Barnet, then part of Hertfordshire, in 1888. Several incarnations of the club existed before the third Barnet FC, created after the First World War, came to be - this entity continues till today. Barnet have won the Football Conference a record three times - in 1991, 2005, and 2015, as well as finishing second three other times. Aside from a runners-up medal in the 1971-72 FA Trophy, their silverware cabinet is restricted to minor trophies. A number of Barnet players have gone on to represent Premier League clubs. They include Dougie Freedman, Marlon King, Andy Clarke, Linvoy Primus, Maik Taylor, Mark Gower, Jason Puncheon, Yannick Bolasie and Albert Adomah. Players who came to the club towards the end of their careers include Jimmy Greaves, Mark Lawrenson, David Hillier, Alan Pardew, Eddie Newton, Paul Warhurst, Steve Kabba, John Oster, Jonathan Fortune, Edgar Davids and Lee Cook. Team news Notts County will check on Jon Stead and Curtis Thompson ahead of the visit of Barnet. Stead has been nursing a dead leg while midfielder Thompson has had a slight hamstring niggle. The pair will be given as long as possible to make themselves available but French defender Thierry Audel may not make the matchday squad again, despite being fit. Elliott Hewitt and Shola Ameobi were both introduced as substitutes fairly early on at Doncaster in midweek and might have done enough to earn starting places on Sunday. Barnet manager Kevin Nugent has no new injury worries ahead of the trip. Defender Elliot Johnson could be in contention to start after coming on as a late substitute for their 2-2 draw against Yeovil having recovered from injury while Sam Akinde is pushing for his first start for the Bees. Centre-back Ricardo Santos looks set to remain sidelined with a knee problem, while Jamie Stephens, Josh Vickers, Jack Taylor, James Pearson, Michael Gash and Shaun Batt are all unavailable.
