Notts County snatch dramatic draw to stun Exeter

Notts County grabbed a priceless point in their bid for League Two survival in a frantic 2-2 draw at home to Exeter.

County's bold second-half assault looked in vain when Ryan Harley put 10-man Exeter 2-0 up in the 89th minute.

Yet defender Richard Duffy nodded a goal back in stoppage time and a shot by Jorge Grant deflected in off skipper Jordan Moore-Taylor barely a minute later.

Earlier, midfield goal machine David Wheeler edged the visitors into a 33rd-minute lead.

Notts boss Kevin Nolan rolled back the years by pushing 36-year-old Alan Smith back up front to partner Jon Stead, but the former England international's main contribution was to pick up a booking before being replaced by Shola Ameobi.

Former Newcastle hitman Ameobi immediately tested goalkeeper Christy Pym with a close-range header before squandering a golden chance by missing his header in the 81st minute.

City's Jake Taylor was sent off in the 85th minute and Duffy rattled the bar before the incredible finish.
