Notts County’s League 2 season continued with a win against Plymouth at Home Park on Saturday.

A one-nil defeat against automatic promotion chasing Plymouth, with Notts County perhaps unlucky not to get something, means a disappointing season goes on with it one many probably aren’t going to be sorry to see the back of!

Graham Carey’s (apparently his ninth-goal of the season but the first he’s scored in eight-matches for Plymouth) goal in the 47th-minute proved enough to give Argyle the points but Jon Stead did see an effort cleared off the line by Peter Hartley with Plymouth ‘keeper Luke McCormick turning a freekick from Elliott Hewitt onto the crossbar.

Defeat means Notts County remain in a disappointing 16th place.

These were the other results.

Saturday 27th February 2016
Accrington 1-2 Barnet
Wimbledon 2-2 Oxford Utd
Dag & Red 0-1 Yeovil
Hartlepool 0-0 Northampton
Leyton Orient 2-0 Crawley
Morecambe 1-2 Carlisle
Newport 1-0 Mansfield
Plymouth 1-0 Notts County
Portsmouth 2-1 Cambridge
Stevenage 0-2 Exeter
Wycombe 1-0 Bristol Rovers
York 2-3 Luton

Plymouth (one-nil) were the only of the top three to actually win, so they’ve strengthened the automatic hopes that little more, which are still looking pretty good anyway.

The winning run Northampton (nil-nil) had been on finally ended with the Cobblers drawing at relegation threatened Hartlepool to see Argyle close the gap by two-points but this should still be more than enough for the job to be seen through.

Oxford (two-two) were also held with play-off chasing Wimbledon keeping their chances on after this game at Kingsmeadow with those looking to close in on the third placed U’s aided….

If they won of course!

Yet there weren’t too many looking to do just that able to manage it with the play-off picture becoming all the more congested if anything given the mixed nature of the results of those in and around those positions.

The battle to stay in the Football League saw Yeovil (one-nil) collecting a big three-points with a win at rivals Dagenham whereas York (three-two) suffered defeat when Luton went away from Bootham Crescent with the points.
