Alfreton have two players with Stags connections in their squad today: Amari Morgan-Smith was a trialist for the Stags in the pre-season of the 13/14 season, but never played a league game. Nyle Blake was with the Stags last season and scored in the Checkatrade trophy against Scunthorpe.

4 mins: Hamilton does really well to win a free kick on the left. Mellis’s delivery to the far post is just missed by the diving Sweeney.

8 min: Great play from Hamilton to win a corner on the left.

10mins: Free kick for Alfreton and from it, Shaun Killock’s powerful header is deflected wide. From the resulting corner, Dominic Smith headed just wide.

12 mins: Trialist right back sells Bishop a hospital pass, Bishop just gets it, then moments later a brilliant tackle from Bishop, who’s started well.

17 mins: Alfreton cross from the left. Bobby Johnsons heads wide.

20 mins: Mellis chips a ball forward but it just skips through to the keeper before Hamilton can get there. Good effort.

26 mins: Long range shot from Josh Wilde is saved low down by Logan.

30 mins: A good header down the line from young Sketchley, to Hamilton who wins a corner. From the corner by Mellis, Rose rises well to head back across goal, but it’s cleared.

38 mins: Hamilton does well to block a clearance, and powers his way into the box. His shot is blocked for a corner. Following the corner, Mellis curls a cross from the left beyond the far post where Sweeney does well to head it back, but the ball is cleared.

43 mins: Good tackle by Sweeney at the back. Then Pearce brings the ball out with a mazy run but eventually loses the ball in the opposition half.

45: Free kick from Bobby Johnson is miles over the bar, after a foul by Bishop just outside the area.

As the half time whistle blows, boss Dempster is straight over to young Kian Sketchley to shake his hand on that 45 minutes which he grew into nicely.

Half time 0-0

A quiet first half. Hamilton looked dangerous for Mansfield on the left. Sterling-James didn’t get into the game much. Maynard hardly had a touch, Rose did well in the air, but had little to feed off. In truth, we haven’t learnt very much from that half. Young Kian Sketchley did well after being called up at left back to replace the ill Jason Law.

Half time 0-0

I thought the right back did okay. Trial games must be difficult, not knowing your team mates that well & getting 45 minutes to shine.

Not good enough is it?

Last pre season Flitcroft had us seeing off the likes of Derby and Sheffield Wednesday. Look how far we have fallen under Dempster already. Youngest manager in the football league and it is showing already.

48 mins: Good play in the early stages from Cook winning a header he had no right to win, and Khan with some good skill.

51 mins: More good play from the trialist attacking midfielder, to set up a shot for Alistair Smith from 22 yards which is blocked.
