League One

Notts County begin their League One season with 3-0 defeats to both Huddersfield Town and Oldham Athletic, keeping them bottom of the table. County notched their first league win of the season against newly promoted Dagenham & Redbridge, and followed it with a hard-fought 3-3 away draw against Bournemouth. The next home league game marked the Meadow Lane centenary, and the team won 4-0 against Yeovil Town. Notts lost their next match to Charlton Athletic, 1-0, with the Addicks scoring the winning goal in the final five minutes, but responded with a 3-2 win over Leyton Orient at home. After losing their next league match 2-1 at Bristol Rovers, County recorded a midweek 3-2 away win against Peterborough United in a bad-tempered affair which saw players and officials involved in a fracas on the pitch. The following Saturday, Notts lost 2-0 at home to Sheffield Wednesday and had a player dismissed for the third consecutive league game. Carlisle United were the next side to defeat County. Bouncing back with a win over Plymouth Argyle and then consecutive losses to Colchester United and Southampton. Exeter City and Tranmere Rovers extended Notts County's losing run to 4 games before Lee Hughes scored the only goal in a win over Swindon Town. Notts County had their game with Brentford called off because of a frozen pitch.[19] However, their luck had changed the following game, beating Milton Keynes Dons 2-0, this was followed by a 1-1 draw with Plymouth and consecutive wins against Walsall and Hartlepool United. Southampton then drew with Notts County, this was followed by 1-0 defeat to Carlisle United and 1-1 draws with Hartlepool United and Walsall. Exeter beat Notts County 2-0 and then Colchester United lost 2-0 to County, this was followed with a win over Charlton Athletic and a draw against Brentford. Two defeats by two promotion candidates, Leyton Orient and Peterborough United, followed before bouncing back with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday. County then suffered three consecutive 1-0 defeats to the hands of Rochdale, Bristol Rovers and league-leaders Brighton & Hove Albion. Defeats against Huddersfield Town, Oldham Athletic. Rochdale, Dagenham & Rebridge, Yeovil Town and Bournemouth all followed. Notts County finally ended their club-record nine game losing streak in the league when they beat fellow strugglers Tranmere Rovers 1-0 away. This was followed by a 2-1 win over Swindon Town, where County had to come back from one goal down. A draw with Brentford meant that the team were still not safe from relegation to League Two, and County failed again to secure safety after a 2-1 defeat to Milton Keynes Dons. They did however secure their league one safety on the final day of the season thanks to a 1-1 draw at home to league one champions Brighton & Hove Albion
