Hughes bags County hat-trick

Published Add your comment

Lee Hughes struck a hat-trick as Notts County lifted the gloom which has enveloped them in recent weeks with a 4-1 Coca-Cola League Two win at Burton.

Ricky Ravenhill netted County's 13th-minute opener and Hughes struck after 45 and 48 minutes before completing an eight-minute treble from the penalty spot.

Steve Kabba had levelled for Burton (38), but also missed a late penalty.

Andy Morrell's brace (55 and 75) helped Bury to a 4-2 win at Accrington.

Mike Jones (53) and Ryan Lowe (90) scored Bury's other goals, with Michael Symes (14) and Sean McConville (69) on the mark for Stanley.

Macclesfield hammered Crewe 4-1 thanks to Ben Wright (four), Paul Bolland (13), Colin Daniel (30) and Reneil Sappleton (90). Calvin Zola (64) bagged Crewe's consolation goal.

Terry Dunfield (11), Kevin McIntyre (pen 45) and Dave Hibbert (79) fired Shrewsbury to a 3-1 win at Bradford, for whom James Hanson scored in the 20th minute.

Barnet and Northampton drew 0-0, while third-placed Rotherham's trip to Chesterfield fell victim to the weather along with Darlington's clash with Lincoln and the match between Hereford and Aldershot.
