Notts County   4 - 1   Morecambe

Notts County 4-1 Morecambe

Notts County 4-1 Morecambe

Notts County secured promotion to League One after a six-year absence with a comfortable win over Morecambe.

The League Two leaders underlined their title credentials with three goals in the opening 20 minutes.

Lee Hughes guided home Craig Westcarr's cross, Ricky Ravenhill netted with a superb 20-yard effort and Hughes then converted Ben Davies' free-kick.

David Artell pulled one back from close range before Davies prodded home Jamie Clapham's centre to seal a fine win.

It was a sixth straight victory for the Magpies, whose 14-game unbeaten run has put them in the driving seat for the title.


Notts County manager Steve Cotterill told BBC Radio Nottingham: "It's been a real team effort. It's not finished though and I want to do our best in the five games remaining.

"I am delighted for everyone, every single one of them, the fans, the chairman, the directors, the office staff.

"The only slight disappointment for me today was conceding a goal."
