Martin Shaw and Simon Chamberlain at Field Mill

Mansfield Town won a hard-fought three points at home to Forest Green Rovers thanks to an early Rob Duffy penalty in very windy conditions at Field Mill. Duffy converted the penalty after he had been brought down himself following a mistake in the Forest Green defence. Forest Green, who had won their last two games, had plenty of possession but a gritty display from a new look Stags held them at bay though a last minute miss by Tomi Ameobi had hearts in mouths as the Stags hung on near the end.
