Notts County   2 - 1   Forest Green

Notts County overcame a feisty FA Cup display by Blue Square Premier side Forest Green to set up a fourth round tie with Premier League Wigan.

After a drab first 45 minutes the second half burst into life when Stephen Hunt toe-poked the opening goal for the home side from five yards.

Forest Green refused to yield and hit back through striker Isaiah Rankin's venomous effort into the bottom corner.

However, one minute later Magpies top scorer Lee Hughes curled in the winner.

Notts County will meet Wigan at Meadow Lane on Saturday for the League Two side's first FA Cup fourth round tie in 15 years.


Notts County coach Tommy Johnson told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"We knew before the game it was going to be difficult and we had Forest Green watched a couple of times.

"We came in at half-time and said we need to get straight at them after the break.

"We said to the boys follow everything in on the goalkeeper and Hunty (Stephen Hunt) has done that and got the goal."

Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"We're very disappointed. We deserved at least a draw. We've had some great chances and Schmeichel has made three unbelievable saves.

"We had a plan and when we changed to 4-4-2 in the second half it caused them problems, but at 1-1 we went to sleep and Hughes had his one moment in the game."

"We've come here and more than matched them. I'm proud of the players and I'm happy for the fans because we've given them something to cheer but I'm gutted that we didn't take at least take them back to our place. We could have won and we all know that."
