The wheel fell off

Followed the League 1 scores on the BBC videprinter cos Notts County, oldest football league club, based in Bridge ward, were one space above the relegation zone and at risk from three other clubs.
And sure enough, Leyton Orient, away to 4th placed Swindon Town, had gone first one, then two up, against a 10-men side. So Notts needed to win.
Then Crawley took the lead at home to Coventry.
So relief when Notts took the lead away at Gillingham.

Then Orient threw away their lead and Crawley fell behind at home.
But Notts conceded 3 goals in the last 5 minutes, whilst Colchester had taken the lead against promotion chasing Preston North End.
Notts had the wheelbarrow, and the wheel fell off.
Bad for Nottingham cos of the smaller crowds next season.
Bad for me cos I was looking forward to Salop’s visit next season.
(Although I have now met a Barnet fan who’s pleased cos he’s got a local game.)
