Notts County have avoided relegation to League Two following a draw with champions Brighton.
Ashley Barnes' shot into the bottom right corner from the edge of the box to give the visitors a 12th-minute lead
Gordon Greer turned a cross from Lee Hughes into his own net to bring Notts level nine minutes before the break.
Notts County midfielder Neil Bishop told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"(On hernia operation) It's the first time I've ever had any operation, so I'm a bit nervous to be honest.
"It's great to play in games like that, playing in an atmosphere like that in a big pressure game, I love playing in it.
"It would have left a bitter taste if we had been beaten and we had to rely on other people. For personal pride, you don't want to rely on other teams."
