What the press made of the late defeat to the MagpiesThe Sentinel
CREWE slipped back in to the bottom four after going down to a late goal at Notts County.
Substitute Billy Daniels scored an excellent late goal for the hosts, volleying home a left wing cross, to settle a tight game at Meadow Lane.
Liam Noble put the hosts in front in first-half stoppage time via the penalty spot after Jon Guthrie felled Kwame Thomas. But Crewe hit back in the opening minutes of the second half as Jamie Ness fired home from the edge of the box.
CREWE Alex's unbeaten run was brought to an end and they slipped back into the drop zone after defeat at Notts County on Saturday.
The Railwaymen were hoping to extend their four-match sequence against a Magpies side struggling for form at Meadow Lane.
But despite Jamie Ness's second goal for the club they were beaten by a Liam Noble penalty and a late winner from sub Billy Daniels.
Home fans were relieved at County's first win in eight. But Alex supporters left disappointed at spending just one week out of the bottom four, following a game they could have taken something from.
The Nottingham Post
NOTTS County ended a run of three straight defeats as they secured a 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra.
The visitors had started brightly and could have taken the lead early on when Nicky Ajose beat the offside trap only to be denied by Roy Carroll.
Ajose then wasted another great opportunity after 15 minutes when, with Carroll nowhere to be seen, he drilled wide of the far post.
Uche Ikpeazu then blazed over the bar as Crewe threatened to run riot, but gradually Notts began to summon their own pressure.
They were rewarded on the stroke of half-time when Liam Noble’s powerful drive was beaten out by Ben Garratt only for Kwame Thomas to be hauled down by Jon Guthrie when collecting the rebound.
Noble took responsibility for the kick and planted it into the bottom corner despite Garratt getting the faintest of touches.
But Jamie Ness drilled in the equaliser after 46 seconds of the second half only for Billy Daniels to seal the points for the hosts with a terrific volley.
