Notts County’s League 2 season continued with a defeat against York at Bootham Crescent on Saturday.

The disappointment of Notts County’s season continued with the latest defeat suffered when County went down two-one at relegation threatened York.

First half goals from Michael Coulson and Bradley Fewster had York in control, an own goal from Lubo Satka gave Notts County hope but that was only a consolation in the end.

These were the other results.

Saturday 13th February 2016
Newport 1-0 Carlisle
Accrington 4-1 Crawley
Wimbledon 4-1 Luton
Dag & Red 0-2 Barnet
Hartlepool 2-1 Yeovil
Leyton Orient 0-4 Northampton
Morecambe 2-4 Oxford Utd
Plymouth 3-0 Mansfield
Portsmouth 3-1 Bristol Rovers
Stevenage 2-0 Cambridge
Wycombe 1-0 Exeter
York 2-1 Notts County

Plymouth (three-nil against Mansfield) and Oxford (four-two at Morecambe) both kept their automatic promotion bids very much on track, which is perhaps just as well they won as most of those below them looking to take advantage of any slips also won, which retains the status quo but helped the play-off bid for some.

At the other end of the table Hartlepool (two-one against Yeovil) collected an important three-points as Craig Hignett celebrated his first game in charge, having replaced Ronnie Moore a few days earlier, with a win to ease the relegation concerns against a rival whereas York (two-one against Notts County) aided their survival bid with three-points at Bootham Crescent.

Being the league leaders Northampton’s (four-nil) win over play-off chasing Leyton Orient wasn’t a surprise as such but to win so emphatically at the Matchroom Stadium really sees the Cobblers stamp their authority and lay down a marker if you will!
