Notts County 3-2 Scunthorpe- Report.


Kelly gets Magpies back on track

Julian Kelly`s late goal gave Notts County a first league win in six outings as 10-man Scunthorpe were beaten 3-2 at Meadow Lane.

Kelly was at fault for Scunthorpe`s equaliser but the Irishman atoned for his error with a confident finish when put through on goal by Gavin Mahon.

Krystian Pearce headed home Alan Judge`s cross to give Notts the lead after 39 minutes but Kelly`s mistake allowed Andy Barcham to quickly level a minute before half-time.

The Iron took the lead eight minutes after the restart when a Mark Duffy cross was headed in by Bobby Grant, but the game soon turned on its head when the visitors were reduced to 10 men four minutes later.

Oliver Norwood`s late lunge on Jeff Hughes saw him given a straight red card and Hughes equalised with a wonderful volley from another Judge cross after 65 minutes.

Right-back Kelly was the unlikely hero when he kept his cool with eight minutes remaining.
