Notts County 4-2 Port Vale

Notts County's Campbell-Ryce

Jimmy Spencer and Jamal Campbell-Ryce both scored twice as Notts County came back from 2-0 down to beat Port Vale and climb out of the relegation zone.

Curtis Thompson headed into his own net and Gavin Tomlin's close-range effort gave Port Vale an early 2-0 lead.

Spencer's quick-fire double, which included a header and a toe-poke, sent the hosts in level at half-time.

A second-half volley from Campbell-Ryce gave Notts the lead before he met Jack Grealish's pass to add a fourth.

The victory leaves the home side level with Carlisle, who have a game in hand, and Crewe on 43 points and precariously placed with four games left to play.
