Chances were few and far between in an evenly matched goal-less first half before County stepped up a gear in the second half, taking the lead on 56 minutes when OLVY BELEZIKA (O.G.) unluckily diverted a low driven cross past his own keeper from two yards out.
The second goal was also an own-goal, coming on 82 minutes, when another low cross into the six yard box looped off MASON BREEZE (O.G.) over the helpless Tom Bamber and into the goal.
