Notts County 0-2 Accrington Stanley- Match Report

Last updated : 10 September 2016

Accrington enjoy a stroll at Meadow Lane

Notts County's four-game unbeaten run was brought crashing to an end as Accrington secured a deserved 2-0 win at Meadow Lane.

Goals from John O'Sullivan and substitute Romuald Boco halted the Magpies' unbeaten run, which included one Checkatrade Trophy success.

The hosts had yet to score first in a Sky Bet League Two game this season and continued that run as they fell behind in the 17th minute to O'Sullivan's deflected strike.

Jonathan Forte did his best to level, but his shot towards the near post brought a fine save from visiting goalkeeper Aaron Chapman.

Notts were out of sorts, but having come from behind to snatch results in their last three league games still had hopes of victory

They came out with purpose and a much quicker tempo at the start of the second half as Louis Laing volleyed straight at Chapman from a Michael O'Connor free-kick.

But an inspired substitution from Accrington boss John Coleman helped his side deservedly extend their lead when Boco leapt from the bench to fire past Adam Collin.

With Notts fans restless, John Sheridan's side did their best to launch a comeback but they were indebted to Collin for keeping the score down with an excellent save from Billy Kee.
