Magpies and O's share spoils
Notts County and Leyton Orient played out a 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane - a result that did little for either side's npower League One play-off ambitions.
The visitors had the ball in the back of the net in the 10th minute when a 40-yard strike by Martin Rowlands was only parried by Bartosz Bialkowski, but Charlie MacDonald was in an offside position when he tucked in the rebound.
County had barely threatened before they opened the scoring in the 31st minute as Magpies skipper Neal Bishop curled a lovely finish past Jamie Jones.
The O's almost hit back two minutes later when Jimmy Smith found space inside the County box and cracked a well-struck shot against the bar from 12 yards out.
They found their leveller in the 66th minute when Dean Leacock brought down MacDonald in the box and substitute Kevin Lisbie converted from the spot for his 11th of the season.
