  1. League Two matchday 1: Coventry City 3-0 Notts County Notts County's season began on the worst possible note, falling to a heavy 3-0 defeat at Coventry City in the opening game of the campaign. The Magpies had their moments but weaknesses at the back saw the Sky Blues take full advantage, with young prodigy Jodi Jones bagging himself a hat-trick. EFL Cup first round: Scunthorpe United 3-3 Notts County (6-5 on penalties) A much-changed Notts County side put in a much improved performance against League One side Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park. Jorge Grant gave the visitors the lead, but Paddy Madden and Duane Holmes edged the Iron ahead - only for Shaun Brisley to make it 2-2 at the death. Onto extra time and Madden struck once again, but Ryan Yates forced the tie to penalties, where the hosts finally prevailed. League Two matchday 2: Notts County 2-0 Chesterfield An early-season local derby to set the pulse racing, Chesterfield did not exactly come to Notts County with the intention of playing them off the park - it turned out to be more a case of kicking and barging, with Gozie Ugwu very lucky not to be sent off, though Scott Wiseman had a worse fate, getting his marching orders close to half time. Kevin Nolan's side emerged triumphant through the prodigal loanee Jorge Grant's second and third goals of the season in all competitions. EFL Trophy Northern Group G: Notts County 2-1 Everton Under-21s A much-maligned competition in a game where Notts County were lined up against one of the teams whose admission to the tournament has been the cause of such discord, the Magpies nonetheless gave the fans who went to the game a good performance and a win. Jonathan Forte opened his account for the season before Haydn Hollis claimed a poacher's goal, and Anton Donkor's impressive strike off the post proved to be just a consolation. League Two matchday 3: Wycombe Wanderers 2-4 Notts County Another difficult proposition in the league, Notts gave a bipolar performance in which they raced into a two-goal lead, relinquished it, and struck two late goals for a flattering scoreline. Richard Duffy opened the scoring before a defensive calamity led to an own goal for the visitors, only for Nick Freeman and Joe Jacobson to draw Wycombe level. However, Jonathan Forte claimed the plaudits with a third Notts Magpies goal, before setting up Lewis Alessandra for the killer fourth. League Two matchday 4: Notts County 2-2 Accrington Stanley For the second successive game, Notts took a two-goal lead, only to capitulate and relinquish it, but there was to be no last-ditch blaze of glory as there was at Wycombe Wanderers on Friday night against Accrington Stanley, who cancelled out Jon Stead's successful spot kick and Jorge Grant's strike via Mark Hughes's goal midway through the second half and loanee Mallik Wilks's injury-time strike. Aaron Chapman, the Stanley goalkeeper, kept his team in it with a succession of fine saves.

  2. Notts County got their Checkatrade Trophy campaign off to a winning start with a 2-1 victory over Everton Under-21s in Tuesday's fixture at Meadow Lane. The game was played out before a largely empty stadium as many fans boycotted the competition due to what they see as the Premier League imposing itself on the EFL, but there were still just under 1,500 people in the stands - arguably one of the evening's better attendances across the country. Kevin Nolan made a total of nine changes to his starting XI and they started on the front foot against a young team which looked almost overawed by the occasion in the early stages. Indeed, Notts took the lead on the half-hour mark when Jorge Grant nodded a header into the path of Jonathan Forte, and the striker controlled, turned his man, and drilled the ball into the bottom corner. It wasn't long before the Magpies doubled their advantage, Elliot Hewitt heading a deep centre across the face of the goal and Haydn Hollis being given the simplest of tasks to prod the ball over the line from two yards out. Everton were more impressive after the break and duly halved the deficit as substitute Anton Donkor picked up the ball in space on the left of the County penalty area before rifling a ferocious shot that found the net via the foot of the post. The hosts were able to see the game out without too much difficulty, and the relatively low number of fans in attendance were pleased with Notts having put in a solid performance, but in all honesty, the whole thing felt like a friendly. The focus of all fans now - boycotting or not - will turn to what really matters; the League Two encounter with Wycombe Wanderers this weekend.
