Neither side has had a particularly smooth start to life in League Two but Crawley now sit in 23rd place, falling into the relegation zone and are yet to excite with performances so far.

Notts County meanwhile, have risen to 16th place and have showed signs of promise which could spark a run of good form.

Crawley started the first 25 minutes as the better side and Jimmy Smith, Rhys Murphy and Luke Rooney all had efforts kept out before Rhys Murphy finished at the second time of asking, dispatching with ease from close range.

Notts County however, responded almost immediately with Michael Edwards levelling the score just over 5 minutes later with a sound header from close range. One minute later and Liam Noble had put Notts County in front smashing home into the top left hand corner from inside the box.

Edwards and Noble both had chances to double their tallies for the night soon after but both failed to find the back of the net the second time around and it took until the 50th minutes when Liam Noble buried a penalty drawn by striker Izale McLeod, and added a third.

From hereon, County seemed to have the game under control and Crawley looked largely out of the game. Izale McLeod could have easily added a fourth but was denied by the keeper. But on 77 minutes, Edwards had his second, firing home from 6 yards to seal the game off.

Notts County secured a necessary win whilst Crawley are left struggling at the bottom.
