Super Saddlers down Magpies
The best chance of the opening exchanges fell to County in the
fifth minute when an Alan Sheehan corner dropped to Dean Leacock,
who smashed the ball wide of goal.
The visitors’ first real threat came after 50 minutes when a
clever ball into the box by Florent Cuvelier was flicked just wide
by the lively Ashley Hemmings.
It was Hemmings who next went closest to breaking the deadlock
when he skipped past a County challenge before cutting in from the
right and curling a left-footed shot inches wide of the far
The lacklustre hosts struggled to put any chances together in
the second half and paid the price 10 minutes from time when a Ben
Purkiss free-kick was turned past Bartosz Bialkowski by Andy
Butler, with substitute George Bowerman making sure after the ball
had crossed the line.
