Gordon Greer turned a cross from Lee Hughes into his own net to bring Notts level nine minutes before the break.


Notts County midfielder Neil Bishop told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"(On hernia operation) It's the first time I've ever had any operation, so I'm a bit nervous to be honest.

"It's great to play in games like that, playing in an atmosphere like that in a big pressure game, I love playing in it.

"It would have left a bitter taste if we had been beaten and we had to rely on other people. For personal pride, you don't want to rely on other teams."
