Mansfield Town came from behind twice to win 3-2 at Yeovil Town in an epic second half in which substitute Lee Angol was the Stags hero. The Stags trailed 1-0 at half time as Bevis Mugabi headed home from a corner, and with Coventry romping to victory at Cheltenham, the Stags’ season was heading towards a limp end after a poor half from Mansfield. The goal had come as Mugabi escaped from his marker Kane Hemmings. But incredible drama followed in one of the most exciting halves of football of the season. On 46 minutes, Mal Benning crossed from the left and Danny Rose somehow ballooned over the bar with the whole goal gaping in front of him. A terrible miss. On 49 minutes, the Stags were level. Good play from Hemmings getting down the left, his cross into the middle squirmed up into the air off keeper Krysiak under pressure from Rose, and Lee Angol knocked into the net from 6 yards despite not getting a clean connection on it and despite a defender attempting to clear off the line. The Stags had the momentum but Yeovil were back in front on 57 minutes, as referee Charles Breakspear awarded Yeovil a penalty as Krystian Pearce knocked Omar Sowunmi over from a corner. From the video, it looks like Pearce deliberately barged Sowunmi over without attempting to get to the ball so we can have few complaints. Francois Zoko sent Conrad Logan the wrong way from the spot. On 64 minutes, Rose was wide again, this time a more difficult chance volleying wide of the left post from the right. Mansfield were level on 70 minutes. Alex MacDonald was fouled 26 yards from the goal. Angol took the resulting free kick and his shot was blocked by the arm of Lewis Wing, whose arm was in front of his face as he jumped into the air. Referee Breakspear correctly awarded a penalty. Hemmings showed nerves of steel to fire into the bottom left corner of the net despite Krysiak diving the right way. On 76 minutes, the Stags were ahead. CJ Hamilton was fouled just outside the box to the left of centre. Angol again took the free kick and this time smacked a magnificent shot into the net off the underside of the bar. It was Mansfield’s first goal direct from a free kick outside the box since early last season (at Accrington, September 2016, by Chris Clements, BEFORE Steve Evans took over). On 88 minutes Yeovil wanted a penalty when Zoko went down in the area, but Breakspear was unmoved. Yeovil manager Darren Wey was unhappy afterwards that it wasn’t given. I’ve studied our pitchside video footage, albeit from the far end of the pitch: Zoko appeared to put his arms around Paul Digby and fall to the ground. So a good decision from the referee. During 9 minutes of added time, which became more than 10 minutes, Yeovil were reduced to 10 men when Sowunmi was sent off. He’d been booked earlier and then he was lucky to escape a second yellow card on 89 minutes as he brought down Danny Rose when Rose would have had a run on goal albeit from the half way line. Generosity from the referee on that occasion, but the referee had no choice but to send Sowunmi off on 90+7 minutes when he fouled Angol. So a great performance from Mansfield in the second half with Lee Angol making all the difference scoring twice and earning a penalty, but overall there was determination from the Stags to force victory and more of the same will be needed next week against Crawley, hopefully for 90 minutes on this occasion rather than 45 minutes. Results elsewhere, with Coventry romping to victory at Cheltenham, while Lincoln lost at Accrington, mean that Mansfield are three points behind both Coventry and Lincoln going into the final match of the season. If Mansfield beat Crawley, then we will reach the play-offs if EITHER Coventry lose at home to Morecambe OR Lincoln lose at home to Yeovil. You’d have to say that Coventry and Lincoln will be expected to pick up at least a point each, but strange things can happen under the pressure of the final day of the season, and the Stags have kept themselves in it with this exciting victory which was appreciated by the travelling Stags fans who enjoyed the second half comeback.
There’s an unfortunate irony in the sending-off of Sowunmi. He is a big unit at centre half, and will miss the game against Lincoln, which could give Lincoln a big advantage as they will no doubt be pumping high balls up to Matt Rhead and maybe Ollie Palmer as well, plus Luke Waterfall from set pieces.

REPORT: Yeovil Town 2-3 Mansfield Town - Stags keep play-off hopes alive
chad.co.uk, by SPORTS REPORTER (Agency), Saturday 28 April 2018
Mansfield Town kept their play-off hopes alive with a brilliant Lee Angol-inspired comeback against Yeovil Town. The Stags twice trailed to goals from Bevis Mugabi and Francois Zoko, but a brace from sub Angol and a penalty from Kane Hemmings secured a vital three points. Mugabi put the home side ahead in the first half, with Angol levelling just minutes after coming on at half-time, bundling the ball over the line. A Zoko penalty restored Yeovil’s lead, but Mansfield weren’t to be denied - now within three points of Coventry and Lincoln City in the play-off spots. Angol’s shot was handled to win the spot-kick converted by Hemmings before the former struck the winner on 76 minutes as he curled in a free-kick from 20 yards. Yeovil ended the game with 10 men as Omar Sowunmi was sent off in ten minutes of stoppage time. Mansfield boss David Flitcroft made one change, with Jacob Mellis replacing CJ Hamilton in midfield and the visitors made a bright start. On five minutes the Stags came close to an opening goal, with defender Paul Digby heading a Mal Benning corner into the side-netting. But on 18 minutes it was Yeovil who took the lead and Mansfield will be disappointed with the manner of the goal conceded. Otis Khan delivered a corner to the near post and Glovers defender Mugabi outjumped keeper Conrad Logan to head in and make it 1-0. Mansfield then struggled to create chances to draw level, with Rhys Bennett flagged offside when he wasted their best opportunity by shooting over the crossbar. Boss Flitcroft showed his displeasure with the Stags’ first half display as he hauled off Alfie Potter for Hamilton. He made an immediate impact with his lively presence on the left wing, but the visitors headed in a goal down at half-time and deservedly so, prior to their superb fightback.
Yeovil (4-4-2): Krysiak 6; Mugabi 7, Sowunmi 8, Donnellan 6, James 7; Green 7 (Browne 63, 5), C Smith 5 (Bird 79, 5) Wing 7, Khan 5: Fisher 6 (Surridge 66, 5), Zoko 5. Subs not used: Phillips, N Smith, Gobern, Seager.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 2-3 Mansfield
Town narrowly defeated in thrilling encounter
ytfc.net, by @AlexOLoughlin18
Yeovil Town suffered a narrow defeat in their final home match of the season, losing out 3-2 to top seven chasing Mansfield at Huish Park.
Keen to upset the visitor's push for the play-offs, Town took the lead inside the opening 20 minutes when Bevis Mugabi grabbed just his second goal of the season from a set-piece.
Playing with freedom and confidence, the Glovers enjoyed the better of the remainder of the first half and comfortably took their lead into the break.
A frantic affair after the restart, Mansfield levelled on 49 minutes through Lee Angol before Francois Zoko restored Yeovil's lead from the penalty spot.
Repeating the feat at the other end, Kane Hemmings converted from 12 yards to make it 2-2, as Angol then dispatched a sublime free-kick to complete the turnaround and keep the Stags' play-off hopes alive.
Looking to sign off in Somerset in style, Darren Way made two changes from the side that secured mathematical safety in midweek.
Having initially been ruled out for the remainder of the season, Artur Krysiak made a timely comeback between the sticks to replace Jonny Maddison who missed out with an injury picked up in training.
Completing the changes, Connor Smith came in for a first appearance since March taking the place of loanee Jared Bird in the centre of midfield.
Enjoying good home form for the majority of the campaign, the Green & whites came into the last outing looking for a first win in six in front of the home faithful but almost found themselves behind after just five minutes.
Mal Benning's corner found Paul Digby stooping at the near post, but the full-back's header only rippled the side netting.
Surviving the early scare, Town grew into the match and soon enjoyed a spell of pressure which resulted in the game's opening goal.
Lewis Wing's deflected strike from range earned a flurry of corners and from Otis Khan's second delivery in succession, Mugabi rose highest to head past a stranded Conrad Logan.
Breaking a run of five home games without a goal, the Glovers looked likely to add a second and remained on the front foot against David Flitcroft's play-off hopefuls.
Playing some neat football, Jordan Green tested Logan just past the half-hour mark when his shot from the angle had to be palmed away whilst Zoko continued to look threatening.
Keeping Krysiak as merely a spectator, Mansfield cut a frustrated side in the opening 45 minutes as the Glovers held them at arm's length.
Only penetrating the home side's box on one occasion, Kane Hemmings' shot from the angle was brilliantly blocked by Omar Sowunmi to only concede a corner as opposed to an undeserved equaliser.
Needing a win in Somerset to keep their hopes of a top seven finish intact, the Nottinghamshire outfit introduced striker Angol for the second half and almost drew level moments after the restart.
Benning's cross from the left could only be glanced into the path of Danny Rose by Sowunmi, but Mansfield's top scorer volleyed over the bar from 12 yards with the goal begging.
However, a different side after the break the Stags continued their onslaught and drew level on 49 minutes with Angol making an instant impact.
Looking to make amends for his miss moments earlier Rose was denied from close range by Krysiak, but the ball squirted into the path of the substitute Angol who just about bundled the ball over the line despite the last-ditch efforts of C. Smith.
Seemingly becoming a difficult second period for the hosts, Way's side responded in positive fashion when Tom James had a 30-yard free-kick just about kept out by Logan before Town did retake the lead before the hour-mark.
Awarded a penalty when Sowunmi was bundled over in the box by Krystian Pearce, captain Zoko stepped up to confidently dispatch his 15th of the season to restore the lead.
Becoming an action-packed second 45 minutes, referee Charles Breakspear pointed to the spot for a second time 10 minutes later, this time in favour of the Stags.
Angol's free-kick was adjudged to have been blocked by a hand in the wall, giving Hemmings the chance - which he didn't turn down - to level it up once again.
One of the most entertaining encounters of the season in Somerset, the hosts almost took the lead for a third time when James' shot from outside the box had to be parried by the Stags stopper as the chances continued to flow.
Unfortunately for Town, the next chance resulted in a third for Mansfield.
Changing the game from the bench, Angol curled in a free-kick in off the bar to round off a 20-minute spell which yielded four goals and gave Flitcroft's side the lead.
Desperate to get something from a fine performance the Glovers threw caution to the wind in the final 10 minutes and had a second penalty appeal waved away when Zoko went down in the middle, but defeat was confirmed when Sowunmi received a second yellow in stoppage time.
Yeovil Town: Krysiak; Mugabi, Sowunmi, Donnellan, James; Green (Browne 62'), Wing, C. Smith (Bird 79'), Khan; Fisher (Surridge 66'), Zoko.
Bookings: Fisher 8', Surridge 68', Sowunmi 90' (red card for two yellows)

Yeovil Town lose final home game as controversial decisions help Mansfield Town to 3-2 win
The Glovers end their final home game in defeat as Mansfield come from behind twice to snatch victory
By Paul Jenkins
A penalty from Kane Hemmings and a free-kick from Lee Angol saw Mansfield Town overcome a 2-1 deficit to beat Yeovil Town 3-2 in a fiery match that referee Charles Breakspear more than played his part in.
Bevis Mugabi had headed Yeovil in front before half-time substitute Angol levelled. Zoko then regained the lead for Yeovil from the spot, but the game turned on two dubious decisions before Yeovil ended the game with ten men after Omar Sowunmi was shown a second yellow card in injury time.
It was an even beginning with Mansfield’s Alex Macdonald firing a warning shot well wide and Jordan Green looked to have played Francois Zoko in, but his heavy touch with his toe saw the ball poked straight to Conrad Logan.
Mal Benning almost put Mansfield in front on five minutes, his near post header from a corner hitting the side netting. Another corner looked go through everyone, catching Danny Rose unawares as Yeovil looked to escape once more.
The deadlock was broken on 18 minutes when a corner found Mugabi unmarked, heading past the onrushing Logan, who was caught in no man’s land, and the ball trickled its way into the net.
Mansfield looked to respond as Rhys Bennett poked over from four yards in an offside position and Thomas James had to be on hand to deflect a Potter cross for a corner.
Zoko was looking dangerous throughout the half and he created a counter attack after mugging Macdonald in his own half. He powered towards the Mansfield box and looked to play Fisher down the left, before play was brought back and Macdonald shown a yellow card.
The game could have had a lengthy stoppage when Mugabi and Rose clashed heads, leaving Rose on the floor and requiring treatment. Thankfully, Rose was able to shake off any ailments and was able to continue.
As Yeovil looked for a second, Otis Khan had a cross headed clear by Bennett and Green also had a cross-cum-shot blocked. A James free-kick hit the wall after he was fouled on the edge of the box, the rebound fell to Khan whose shot was deflected behind. Another Khan cross was then deflected onto the roof of the net and Green almost broke through, turning in the box, but a defender was able to poke away to Logan as Mansfield held on.
Yeovil Town announce season ticket prices for 2018-19 campaign
With frustration beginning to show, as their play-off hopes were diminishing, Mansfield almost equalised right on half-time when a neat one-two between Kane Hemmings and substitute CJ Hamilton saw the former looked to be played in, but Sowunmi managed to slide in before Hemmings pulled the trigger.
They should have been level from the restart when a cross found Rose, but he manage to volley over with the goal at his mercy. They did level four minutes in when a goalmouth scramble saw Artur Krysiak block at Rose's feet, but the ball fell to substitute Angol who somehow managed to force the ball towards the goal, the equaliser given by the linesman despite efforts to clear the ball away.
Yeovil could have paid a heavier price when Krysiak stayed down following the clash with Rose, but he was able to continue following some lengthy treatment. Yeovil almost retook the lead straight away when a long-range James free-kick bounced in front of Logan, causing him to poorly parry the ball which was cleared for a corner.
From the following corner, Sowunmi looked to have been pulled down by Pearce and the referee pointed to the spot. Zoko stepped up and calmly slotted into the left-hand corner to put the Glovers back in front.
Mansfield again tried to respond with frustrations again bulding. Angol fired an effort well over before a Hamilton cross was deflected for a corner, it fell to Rose at the far post but his rifled effort was fired across the box and wide. Mansfield were then awarded the lifeline when an Angol free-kick, given softly, appeared to hit a raised arm in the wall and a second penalty was awarded. Hemmings took the spot-kick, firing perfectly into the corner with Krysiak unable to get a hand to it despite guessing correctly.
Again Yeovil retorted. Khan played Zoko in down the left, he pulled it back to James whose effort was parried by Logan, but it just evaded Surridge and went safe. At the other end, Angol missed the target from inside the six yard box after getting on the end of a cross and probably should have done better.
Another soft free-kick was awarded against Sowunmi on the edge of the box when it looked like he might have won the ball. Angol stepped over it and fired it into the top corner, via the underside of the bar, to turn the game on its head, somewhat controversially. Mugabi was then called upon twice to clear more Mansfield dangers before Rhys Browne had a shot deflected for a corner.
James had to clear a shot off the line from Hemmings and Surridge had an effort straight at Logan as the final ten minutes became frenetic. Krysiak won a battle of wits to come out of his area and win the ball from the onrushing Angol. Surridge then headed inches wide from a cross.
Yeovil began to pile the pressure on towards the end with Wing chipping a ball into Zoko. He went down after clashing with Pearce after playing the ball past him. But the referee deemed the ball to have gone too far away to award a third penalty, which could have easily been given.
Khan came close to levelling inside the nine minutes of injury time, his header looping onto the roof of the net. The game then ended sourly when Sowunmi was shown a second yellow for a foul just inside his own half.

Ciderspace News Page : Yeovil 2 Mansfield 3 : Angol Double Gives Stags Win As Sowunmi Sees Red Again
Yeovil Town ended their 2017-18 home fixtures with defeat to Mansfield Town in a topsy-turvy game. The 2-3 defeat saw the Glovers hold the lead twice, with Bevis Mugabi heading his side into the lead from a corner. The Stags needed to win, and were inspired by substitute Lee Angol who equalised from close range three minutes after coming on as a half time change. Francois Zoko then restored Yeovil's lead from the penalty spot after Omar Sowunmi had been pushed in the box, but referee Charles Breakspear then awarded a second spot kick for handball, allowing Kane Hemmings the chance to level. Angol then won the match with a well-taken free kick 14 minutes from time, with Yeovil's day being marred by Sowunmi's 97th minute red card after he committed one too many fouls for the referee's liking, with his side ending the day in 20th place in the table.
The Glovers made two changes to their line-up with one of those forced. Jonny Maddison picked up a hip flexor injury in training on Friday and his place in the side was taken by Artur Krysiak, making his first appearance for the club since his own knee injury. In midfield, Connor Smith got his first start in six weeks, displacing Jared Bird. Mansfield went into the game needing to win in order to keep their play-off dreams alive, having stuttered in their form since their change of management a dozen games ago.
Mansfield had the best of the early chances, as Alex MacDonald shot well wide, followed by Paul Digby heading into the side netting on the near post, as Mal Benning swung in a corner. It took a while for the Glovers to warm up, and Lewis Wing's wayward shot was fortunate in that it deflected for a corner. Yeovil were able to profit from that though, as Otis Khan swung it into the near post, and Bevis Mugabi was there to head home a 17th minute opener for what had been their first proper chance of the game. 1-0 up and an end to 467 minutes at Huish Park without a home goal.
The Stags clearly had a problem on their hands, with Coventry ultimately on their way to a 6-1 win at Cheltenham Town. Whether they were explictly aware of that, or whether it was just that they were a goal down, they seemed to go into panic mode, with pairs of players twice challenging each other for the same ball, allowing Yeovil to regain possession. Jordan Green had a shot palmed away, whilst Otis Khan's drive deflected from a corner after a Lewis Wing free kick had gone into the wall. Yeovil looked more calm and assured than their opponents and from that point of view they deserved to go into the half time break with their lead.
Mansfield made a half time substitution, bringing on Lee Angol, and that was to prove significant. Danny Rose had fired over the bar when he really should have equalised from a Mal Benning cross, with Artur Krysiak having been over-committed by punching an earlier ball clear. But it took just three minutes for the equaliser to come, with Jordan Green losing possession inside his own half, leading to Kane Hemmings cross into the box finding Danny Rose. His initial attempt was blocked by Krysiak, but Angol was able to bundle home from close range. 1-1.
Krysiak picked up a head injury in the scramble for that goal, leading to a significant delay but he was eventually passed fit to continue. And it took Yeovil just nine minutes before they were able to get their noses back in front. Referee Charles Breakspear was certainly rather noticeable in the match, and he awarded Yeovil a spot kick when he decided Omar Sowunmi had been pushed in the box for a spot kick that left Mansfield furious, with a number of flare-ups delaying the kick, as Krystian Pearce got carded for expressing his views. Francois Zoko stepped up, and slotted home his 15th goal of the season for a 2-1 scoreline.
Yeovil withdrew Alex Fisher, bringing on Sam Surridge, whilst Rhys Browne replaced Jordan Green. One of Surridge's early contributions was to add himself in a growing list of bookings, penalised for bringing down Alex MacDonald. From the resultant free kick, Lee Angol's strike was blasted into the wall, but then referee Breakspear took centre stage once again, penalising one of Shaun Donnellan or Lewis Wing for a handball as they blocked the shot. Kane Hemmings didn't care how questionable the decision was, and although Artur Krysiak went the right way, the ball landed in the net for a 2-2 scoreline.
That was the key for the game to go into an extreme end-to-end contest, with Yeovil wanting to re-take the lead, whilst Mansfield needed to grab the win. Tom James saw a shot parried by Conrad Logan after Otis Khan and Francois Zoko were involved in a build-up that saw Zoko feed him. Then Lee Angol was inches away from converting a Kane Hemmings cross at the other end. But Angol didn't need long to get his next opportunity. Omar Sowunmi committed a foul on the edge of the box, and with the ball set up in a dangerous position, the Mansfield substitute curled it home from 20 yards out to give his side the 2-3 advantage they'd craved.
Mansfield might have been expected to have shut up shop at this stage, but set out in a 4-3-3 formation for the second period, maybe they couldn't and there were still opportunities for Yeovil to equalise. Sam Surridge headed wide of the goal, whilst Francois Zoko had appeals for a third penalty of the game turned down when he went down inside the box. Jared Bird also put over the bar, before the last word on the match went to referee Charles Breakspear. In fairness on this occasion, he'd tried to avoid raising a red card. Omar Sowunmi had been the man who fouled for Mansfield's third goal, and when he brought down Angol again, he was given an 85th minute booking. When he fouled again on the 90 minute mark he was given a lengthy 'last warning' which meant his 97th minute foul on Angol again made it almost impossible for Breakspear not to dismiss him. Yeovil's 10th red card of the 2017-18 season, stands as an unnecessary one from a Glovers point of view, and will almost certainly mean the defender will be ruled out of the opening day of the 2018-19 season as a result.
