Notts County 1-2 Exeter City

First-half goals from Jake Taylor and Jayden Stockley saw Exeter City shatter Notts County's unbeaten home record in League Two.

It was the first league loss the Magpies have experienced in front of their own fans since losing to Portsmouth last April, and Exeter were good value for their victory as they moved within a point of the automatic promotion places.

Their opener came when Dean Moxey's thunderous drive cannoned off the post and straight to the feet of Taylor who tapped in a simple finish.

Stockley then finished brilliantly from 20 yards after Taylor's delightful cross-field ball.

Stead sent Christy Pym the wrong way from the penalty spot after Troy Archibald-Henville hauled down Shola Ameobi, but Notts could not find an equaliser.
