Notts County’s League 2 season continued with a defeat against Leyton Orient at Meadow Lane on Saturday.

Defeat, when Notts County lost one-nil to Leyton Orient, was suffered once again with the season of disappointment continuing for County.

Shaun Brisley’s winner, on 76-minutes, proved enough for play-off chasing Leyton Orient as Notts County slipped to 15th following a third straight defeat with emotions running high at fulltime. This saw ‘keeper Roy Carroll ‘confronted by angry fans’ at the end.

These were the other results.

Saturday 20th February 2016
Exeter 1-1 Newport
Barnet 1-2 Wimbledon
Bristol Rovers 2-1 Morecambe
Cambridge 3-1 York
Carlisle 1-0 Stevenage
Crawley 1-1 Plymouth
Luton 2-1 Hartlepool
Mansfield 3-2 Dag & Red
Northampton 1-0 Wycombe
Notts County 0-1 Leyton Orient
Oxford Utd 1-2 Accrington
Yeovil 1-1 Portsmouth

The Northampton run continues, a 50-year plus winning run was equalled last time round with the Cobblers (one-nil) winning at Sixfields against play-off chasing Wycombe again to not only set that new club record of successive wins it also strengthens the promotion bid with them almost certain to be in League 1 next season.

With it looking a good bet to be as League 2 Champions!

Oxford’s (two-one) bid to join them took a knock as they lost again with Accrington, who have now closed in on the U’s, winning at the Kassam Stadium but Plymouth (one-one) missed the chance to open up more of a gap in second with a draw at Crawley.

With the play-off chasing pack congested Bristol Rovers (two-one) again Morecambe and Leyton Orient (one-nil) at Notts County responded well to defeats against Portsmouth and Northampton, respectively, last time to get those efforts going again.
