Lin­coln pile on the mis­ery for Notts

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

LEAGUE TWO: Lin­coln moved to the top as Notts County’s mis­er­able start to the sea­son con­tin­ued at Sincil Bank.

The teams were both beaten in the semi-fi­nals of last term’s play-offs, but while Lin­coln are the early pace­set­ters in this cam­paign the Mag­pies have taken just one point from their first five games af­ter a 3-1 de­feat, which re­sulted in the dis­missal of County man­ager Kevin Nolan.

MK Dons leapt above Ex­eter and into sec­ond in the ta­ble af­ter a 1-0 vic­tory over the Gre­cians.

Ex­eter were re­duced to 10 men in the 55th minute when Dean Moxey re­ceived a sec­ond yel­low for han­dling in the area.

Colch­ester and Steve­nage saw their un­beaten starts to the sea­son ended by Northamp­ton and Yeovil re­spec­tively, Colch­ester los­ing 2-1 and Steve­nage 2-0.

Ash­ley Nade­san’s strike lifted Carlisle to a 1-0 vic­tory over Crewe, while New­port over­came Grimsby by the same score­line thanks to Matt Dolan’s free-kick. Wes Thomas saw red for Grimsby for a rash chal­lenge on Tyler Hornby-Forbes.

Goals from Chris O’Grady and Ge­varo Ne­po­mu­ceno helped Old­ham beat More­cambe 2-0, while debu­tant Sam Jones’s strike proved the dif­fer­ence for Chel­tenham in a 1-0 win at Cam­bridge. Mac­cles­field grabbed a 1-1 draw at home to Mans­field while Tran­mere edged out Port Vale 1-0.

Ol­lie Palmer bagged the win­ner two min­utes from time as Craw­ley hit back from 2-1 down to over­come Bury 3-2.

A penalty earned Swin­don a 1-1 draw at For­est Green.
