mansfieldtown.net reports that the Stags lost 3-1 in a friendly against a very strong Leicester City side that included Dion Dublin and Danny Tiatto to name but two.

It was the Stags who opened the scoring with a superb effort from Alex Neil. The home side then took control and the game finished up 3-1 to the foxes.

"The lads gave a great account of themselves playing against a very strong Leicester City side. Alex Neil, scored first which was good to see and the overall attitude of our players was exactly what I wanted to see" said Keith Curle following the game.

The match ended up with the youth team players on the pitch who also gave a good account of themselves against the Coca Cola Championship league side. Also Marvin Robinson played and was looking like he was approaching match fitness again.
