FINAL STATS OF THE SEASON (INCL ATTENDANCE STATS)
9th May 2015 0:36


by Martin Shaw

Mansfield finished 21st, with 48 points, 7 points clear of the relegation zone. That was 6 points more than when we were relegated to the Conference 7 years ago. The Stags ended the season with 8 defeats out of 9 games.

Mansfield changed manager in mid-season. The respective record of the two managers during the season was:
Paul Cox: Played 17 Points 19; Adam Murray (including as caretaker): Played 29 Points 29

Mansfield’s goal tally of 38 in the league was the lowest in League Two and was the fewest goals scored in the club’s history (lower than the previous lowest of 41 set in 1971/72 and 1984/85). The Stags did not win a single game by more than one goal.

Mansfield ended the season with the worst away record in League 2: just 3 wins and a total of 13 points. That total of 13 points is the fewest the club have achieved under 3 points for a win. The Stags stayed up thanks to those crucial 10 wins at the One Call Stadium. Indeed 73% of Mansfield’s points were earned at home, that was the highest percentage across the entire Football League (League Two, League One, Championship).

Mansfield were not awarded a penalty all season, and indeed for the past 81 league and cup matches, since November 2013.

Goalscorers (League and Cup):
Bingham, Oliver 7, Lambe 5, Rhead 3, Beevers, Brown, Fisher, Heslop, Kee, Palmer 2, Bell, Carr, Clements, McGuire, Murray, Tafazolli, Thomas 1. 2 OG

Top appearances (League ONLY) (at least 23 starts):
Tafazolli 35 (+1 sub), Sutton 34, Beevers 33 (+2 sub), Riley 31 (+2 sub), Clements 30 (+4 sub), Oliver 28 (+2 sub), McGuire 25 (+4 sub).
