Last Updated: 11/11/17 6:16pm
Elliott Hewitt's equaliser earned Notts County a point from a 1-1 draw at Stevenage in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday.
County remain top of the table, a point ahead of Accrington Stanley, after being unable to force a winner despite finishing the match at the Lamex Stadium on top.
Visiting goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons was almost embarrassed, as he was beaten to Tom Pett's cross by Dan Newton, whose header bounced off the top of the bar.
Stevenage broke the deadlock seven minutes before half-time, as Shaun Brisley's header fell for Ronnie Henry, whose ball back into the box allowed Newton to finish into the bottom corner.
Jorge Grant sent a free-kick just over for the visitors before the break and Newton forced Fitzsimons into a save at his near post less than a minute into the second half.
The Magpies improved after the break and levelled when Grant passed the ball inside for Hewitt, who produced a good, measured finish beyond Joe Fryer.
