Notts County   4 - 0   Darlington

Notts County 4-0 Darlington

Notts County 4-0 Darlington

Lee Hughes scored twice as Notts County piled more misery on lowly Darlington.

Luke Rodgers capitalised on some poor goalkeeping by debutant Ashlee Jones to open the scoring from close range.

The hosts then doubled their lead when Hughes headed in a Craig Westcarr cross although Darlington's Mor Diop did force Kasper Schmeichel into a save.

Davies finished off a slick County breakaway to make it three before Hughes lobbed a superb fourth late on and sealed a hugely comfortable win.

County have now scored 26 goals at Meadow Lane this season and move up to sixth in the table but Darlington remain rooted to the bottom of the league.


Notts County manager Hans Backe told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"The first 20 to 25 minutes we were brilliant.

"But it is typical when you are two or three up that you sometimes go down a bit.

"Overall in the second half I think we showed we are rather a good team."
