The weekends best matches – League 2 had the 2 best weekend matches.

Newport V Notts County
Doncaster V Hartlepool

As we went into the game, all the focus was towards Newport who had to win to avoid relegation to the national league. With Hartlepool playing Doncaster away from home, it looked as though thee win wasn’t needed for Newport because the league leaders Doncaster look certain to beat Hartlepool. It was looking very good for the welsh side as they lead at half time and Hartlepool were losing at half time. But then Hartlepool scored two late goals and Newport had conceded. It looked like a super survival for Hartlepool as they upset Doncaster, ruined Doncaster’s league winning hopes and helped Portsmouth to the title. It looked like relegation for Newport. However, in the 89th minute, Newport won it and won survival. It ended badly for both Hartlepool and Doncaster as one was prevented from winning the league and the other was relegated despite their win. Unlucky.

Results: Newport county 2 – 1 Notts County Doncaster Rovers 1 – 2 Hartlepool United
