Notts County concede three calamitous goals in FA Cup, fans have never seen anything like it

December has only just begun but Notts County were handing out early Christmas presents against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup.

Notts County were on the receiving end of a 3-2 defeat to the League One side on Friday, but the goals they conceded were all of their own making.

Shrewsbury opened the scoring inside one minute after Aden Baldwin's slip set through Dan Udoh, who squared it to Ryan Bowman to make it 1-0.

However, Luke Williams' side refused to lie down and soon got back on level terms courtesy of Richard Brindley, as the two teams headed into the break all square.

The second half saw another mental collapse from Notts County, though, with two defensive errors gifting Bowman his second and third goal before the hour-mark.

James Sanderson pulled one back for Notts County in the 75th minute, but it proved too little too late as the League Two side crashed out of the FA Cup.

Speaking after the game, Notts County manager Williams admitted he was "hurt" by the manner in which his side conceded the goals.

When quizzed on the performance, the boss explained: "Not because it's a disgrace to concede three goals against a really good team, more the manner we concede the goals.

"It's a problem, so now I have a dreadful feeling. To lose 3-2 in the cup to a really good side, no, but, to lose in that manner, yeah. I'm so hurt with the way that we conceded the goals.

"If you keep giving them a goal, then we end up playing like lunatics because we're desperate.

"Because we make a stupid action three times and now we have to play completely crazy to even get back on level terms."
