Circumspect County Chuck Chase Away

A baffling performance from the Magpies left them with little hope of a rally into the playoffs with another disjointed performance, the hosts can consider themselves very fortunate to have not conceded in the opening half nevermind take the lead, the  Notts goal being the very definition of ‘against the run of play’ a neat bit of build up releasing Neal Bishop who finished aplomb; the reality was this was Notts’ only piece of well crafted football in the half.

Notts needed to win, and questions have to be asked why the decision to play 1 up front was made, perhaps hoping to hold onto the 1-0 this tactic backfired as Orient equalised from a clear penalty; Dean Cox for the visitors fizzed about creating some good openings (probably the best player on the night) but the fizz went to fizzled as both sides had to make do with a point.

Notts 1 – 1 Orient
