Five-star County bury Shakers: Match Review

Football News

Notts County strengthened their claims for automatic promotion as they swept to a 5-0 win over Bury.

After Mike Edwards had given the hosts an early lead, the Magpies netted three times in 14 second-half minutes to end the challenge of the visitors.

First Craig Westcarr got on the end of a Luke Rodgers cross, before Ben Davies finished off a lovely passing move and then whipped in a free kick for Lee Hughes to head home.

And County substitute Delroy Facey completed a miserable afternoon for the Shakers when he tapped in with nine minutes left.

The defeat stretched Bury's winless streak to eight matches but the score line flattered County who withstood a period of heavy pressure in the first half after Edwards had blasted them in to a fourth minute lead following a quick free kick.

But once Westcarr had found space in the box to score following a good run for Rodgers, it was one-way traffic for a County side who have now hit four or more goals seven times this season and extended Steve Cotterill's unbeaten start as manager to nine matches.
