‘Can the last one out please turn off the light and lock up’ – Notts County fans react to MK Dons defeat

Notts County slumped to their twenty-second defeat of the season in a 2-1 loss to promotion-chasing MK Dons at Meadow Lane on Good Friday.

Second half goals from David Wheeler and Chuks Aneke left the Magpies bottom of the table, two points from safety with three games left to play.

A late Ben Barclay effort was little consolation for County who once again failed to capitalise on defeats for relegation rivals Macclesfield and Yeovil.

The result means the Magpies have failed to register a win at home since they ran out 1-0 winners over local rivals Mansfield on 16 February, indeed County have now lost ten matches on home soil this season.

Their remaining fixtures see them travel to Crawley Town on Easter Monday before entertaining Grimsby Town the following Saturday. County’s final game of the season is away at improving Swindon Town.

Speaking after the game, Magpies boss Neal Ardley told the Nottingham Post the disappointing result meant that ‘We will now probably need to win two.’

County’s third manager of what has been a chaotic season, both on and off the pitch, added. ‘Who knows what is written in the stars over the next three games, but the one thing we know is that we have got to recover really quickly and go again if we want to take this down to the wire and save our season.’

Magpie fans soon took to Twitter to react to another home reverse with Ardley’s management coming under fire and Alan Hardy’s ownership heavily criticised.

Most seemed resigned to watching National League football next season.

Here is a small selection of their responses.
