Moon Of Liberty Soccer Update – League 2



League 2

Blackpool were cruelly denied an away win as Barnet snatched a point with an injury time equaliser. Mark Cullen gave the Tangerines the lead on 24 minutes with a strike from the edge of the area but a close range volley from John Akinde got the home side a point. Newport County could not take advantage of Luton going down to 10 men. Cameron McGeehan’s penalty gave the Hatters the lead, Jennison Myrie-Williams freak direct corner had brought Newport level with 20 minutes to go.Johnny Mullins was sent off for Luton in the final 10 minutes but it was the 10 men who rallied and they were awarded a second penalty in injury time which McGeehan put away for the victory for Luton.

Mansfield Town move up to third after a superb performance despite playing with 10 men for over 80 minutes after Danny Rose was sent off. His namesake Mitch Rose was brought down on 64 minutes and Matt Green put away the penalty which proved to be the winner to keep the Stags super start to the season going. In contrast Notts County’s dreadful start to the season continued as the Magpies went down 2-1 to Plymouth at Meadow Lane. Jon Stead had equalised Jake Jervis’ opener for the visitors from Devon. The winner came on 32 minutes when Nauris Bulvitis headed home a corner. County had plenty of shots but were largely wasteful and are already dangerously close to the drop zone.
