Notts County

The Club have confirmed arrangements with Leyton Orient ahead of the FA Cup clash at the Matchroom Stadium a week on Saturday.

Adults will have to pay £18, with concessions £12. Under 9's are in for free, whilst 9-15 year olds will pay £6.

Admission is pay on the day.

Ross... Playmaker
Ian Ross has acknowledged his part in Notts' game plans. The on-loan Sheffield United midfielder has been integral to a number of goals Notts have scored this season with his set-piece delivery.

He told the club's Official Site, “I have always worked on my free-kicks and corners. If my delivery is right every time then people like Jason Lee, Alan White and Mike Edwards can get on the end of them.”

League 2

Maheta Molango has joined Wrexham on loan from Brighton. The striker has appeared in this division once before, when he spent a largely unsuccesful season at Lincoln City.

League 2 sides fared well in last night Johnstone's Paint Trophy action last night. Peterborough United and Shrewsbury Town saw off League 1 sides in Swansea and Yeovil respectively.

Accrington Stanley won the game of the night, seeing off League 1 Blackpool on penalties. Darlington beat Tranmere and Chester and Mansfield also eased through. Bristol Rovers grabbed a 1-0 success over Wycombe.


Milan Mandaric has accelerated his takeover plans at Leicester City with a £25 million bid. The former Portsmouth Chairman has been keen to get back into football, and sees the East Midlands club as the perfect place to revive his career.

After Liverpool and Chelsea did the business for England in last night's Champions league games, Arsenal and Manchester United prepare to do the same tonight. They face CSKA Moscow and Copenhagen respectively. A win for both sides will see them through, but United are without Louis Saha, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs. Emmanuel Adebayor misses out for the Gunners.
