Notts County striker Macauley Langstaff’s goal scoring exploits have fired the world’s oldest professional football club towards a return to the Football League.
County are currently top in the National League and will go head to head with Wrexham for the league title and the only automatic promotion spot into League Two.
Longstaff has bagged 40 goals in 40 National League games so far this season despite only arriving at Meadow Lane in the summer from National League North side Gateshead, who he bagged 28 goals for in 39 games last season.

The 26-year-old’s season is mirroring that of Manchester City hitman Haaland, the big Norwegian has scored 28 Premier League goals this season in 26 games and looks destined to break Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s record for most goals in a single Premier League season with 34.
Could Macauley Langstaff be a success in the Football League? Let us know in the comments section below
Haaland arrived at the Etihad in the summer but despite his goals, City remain second in the table behind Arsenal, a very similar situation to Langstaff and County with Wrexham in the driving seat for the title.
Langstaff looks sure to be playing in the Football League next season whether he remains at Notts County or not, with his career so far taking a very similar shape to Leicester City and former England striker Jamie Vardy.
Vardy previously scored 31 goals in 36 games for Fleetwood Town in the Conference during the 2011/12 season which led to his move to then-Championship side Leicester who he eventually fired to an incredible Premier League title after scoring 24 Premier League goals and breaking the record for number of consecutive Premier League games scored in with 11.
With Vardy showing signs of slowing down at 36 years old after scoring just one top flight all season, Langstaff could step into the Football League and take on the position of football’s next potential fairy tale.
