Notts County 2-0 Yeovil Town

Stanley Aborah's first goal in English football helped Notts County end their four-game winless run with victory over Yeovil Town at Meadow Lane.

Izale McLeod had County's best first-half chance, beating Arthur Krysiak only to see his effort hit the post.

Adam Campbell also hit the woodwork with a cross-turned-shot for the hosts and Krysiak saved from Liam Noble.

Aborah's deflected free-kick put the Magpies ahead and McLeod add a second with a well-struck effort.
