STAGSNET`S STATISTICAL PREVIEW
17th May 2004 22:49


In the first play-offs semifinals for the Stags since 1994-95, Mansfield Town secured a good and crucial 2-0 victory against a Northampton side which got Ashley Westwood sent-off in the third minute of stoppage time and therefore suspended for the Field Mill venue, while Eric Sabin returns for the Cobblers after serving a one-match ban at Sixfields last Sunday.

Goals from Day and Mendes put the Stags on the winning trail, the former chesting in the crucial first at a very crucial time indeed, five minutes before half-time in a first half that saw Northampton squandering lots of good chances – and they paid the prize for that.

The Mendes goal halfway through the second half finally put the game beyond the Cobblers' reach and Northampton have to score first on Thursday night if they are to get back in the Cardiff reckoning. If the Stags score first, the Cobblers have to hit four to overturn the score from the first leg – so at the moment it is advantage Stags for reaching the division 3 Finals. And in all previous Stags v Cobblers games at knock-out stages, the Stags have gone through (see stats below).

In the other tie, Huddersfield secured a 2-1 win at Lincoln where an ex-Stag, Iffy Onoura, opened the scoring for the Terriers.

Played for both sides: Kim Book, Alfred Brown, Peter Clark, Efon Elad, John Fairbrother, Greg Fee, Thomas Knox, Edwin McLachlan, Barry Richardson, Gary Saxby, Ben Sedgemore, Glyn Thompson, Clive Walker, Keith Welch, Benjamin Wonnacott.
