Rivals fans offer EFL club ‘condolences’ after two horror blunders that made supporters ‘squirm’ lead to goals

FANS have offered their “condolences” to Notts County after they made two embarrassing blunders leading to goals.

It was not a Good Friday for the Magpies as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat against Swindon.

A poor pass back from Scott Robinson hit his own post and set up Swindon for the opener
Keeper Sam Slocombe made a horror error and gifted Swindon another goal
Paul Glatzel chipped it into an empty net to make it 2-0

Notts County gave their League Two rivals the opening goal via a shocking pass back.

Scott Robertson tried to give it to No1 Sam Slocombe and his awful ball hit his own post.

It rolled out to Aaron Drinan, who converted the easy chance.

Trailing by a goal Notts County gave Swindon another Easter gift with Slocombe at fault this time.

As the goalkeeper tried to play out from the back, he dallied in possession on the edge of his box and was closed down by attackers.

He ended up passing the ball straight to Swindon’s Paul Glatzel, who had the simple task of chipping the ball into an empty net.

The horror gaffes left fans with their heads in their hands, one said: “If you don’t laugh you’ll cry.”

Another added: “My condolences, that’s hard to watch.”


A third commented: “Comical.”

Slocombe made an infamous blunder in last season’s play-off final, conceding a penalty for a rash tackle on Andrew Dallas.

Notts County went on to win the game and secure promotion but fans were reminded of the error today.

One supporter reacted: “It’s laughable for sure. Reoccurring mistakes. Almost makes me squirm as much as the Wembley final.”

The loss to Swindon leaves Notts County 16th in the table amid pressure mounting on manager Stuart Maynard.
