A Notts County match without the ugly shiny topped slimeball Lee Hughes was an occasion to enjoy. However, having no hate figure to bait was the least of the Cherries problems as his half-brother Jeff Hughes popped up and put the visitors in front with the fastest goal of the day. At least the Hughes name lives on.

“Not the ideal start but the Cherries started on a new quest, to come from behind.”

The Cherries were slow out of the blocks, it was like they were looking for a bald-headed bloke to kick. While they continued looking, a County player skipped past Daniels and put the ball on the full head of hair Jeff Hughes who was completely unmarked in the box. Not the ideal start but the Cherries started on a new quest, to come from behind. A feat that they have struggled with all season, but they showed their credentials 15 minutes later as Daniels made amends for his earlier mistake and put the ball across the box for Ritchie to slam home. A couple of early goals left us thinking that this was going to be another one of those County clashes with a lot of goals and late drama. We have never forgotten, or forgiven, County for scoring two goals in injury time to grab an undeserved draw back in 2000 we can’t remember.
Thankfully, Boucaud went and got a second yellow in first half injury time, so it was 11 v 10 of last 45 minutes. County had a plan and the Cherries didn’t. If anyone looked likely to score it wasn’t the home side. However, the Cherries eventually ground down County, who succumbed to another Ritchie strike after being set up by Grabban.
We cant complain, with another three points on the board and second place coming ever closer. Can we get automatic promotion? Our latest poll suggests otherwise, but if Sheffield Utd can stick with their current form and keep drawing the unlikely may well become likely.
