Notts County 4-2 Bristol Rovers

Notts County produced an impressive FA Cup comeback as they came from two goals down to beat Bristol Rovers 4-2 at Meadow Lane.
Rovers were ahead after just eight minutes when Liam Sercombe powered a header past Ross Fitzsimons.
Four minutes later they were further in front when Stuart Sinclair rose to meet Chris Lines' corner as Rovers made a blistering start.
But Ryan Yates nodded in Carl Dickinson's free-kick in the 30th minute before the duo combined again at a corner which saw the midfielder tap in at the back post two minutes later.
And County underlined their terrific team spirit under boss Kevin Nolan as they made it 3-2 when Jorge Grant crossed for Jon Stead to thump the ball past Adam Smith.
Further chances came and went for County and they sealed their place in the second round when Grant latched onto Terry Hawkridge's header and applied a cool finish.
