Notts County: Match-winner Dean Leacock happy with his first goal for the Magpies
DEAN Leacock was glad to come back with a bang for Notts County in their 1-0 win against Scunthorpe United in League One today.
The centre-back returned to the Magpies' defence at Meadow Lane, after serving a two-game ban, and was a rock as they kept a clean-sheet and also scored the winner with his first goal for the club on 81 minutes.
Notts are still in 11th place in the table, but have closed the gap on the play-offs to six points with seven games left.
"We put in a good shift," said Leacock.

"They missed a few chances, but we're glad to get the win and I think we put on a good performance.
"I'm very happy to score, luckily the ball fell to me inside the six-yard box and I stuck it away, but the main thing for me was keeping a clean-sheet as a defender.
"It was good work from Jeff Hughes and Neal Bishop, they put it on a plate for me and I couldn't miss."
