Picture Slideshow: Mansfield Town outclassed at Rochdale

Mansfield Town’s miserable run without a League win reached 13 games as they were outclassed 3-0 at Rochdale.

Spotland has rarely been a happy hunting ground for the Stags and this was an 11th game without a win there and a fourth successive trip there without scoring.

So the omens were not good before kick-off, and Stags then proceeded to concede twice in the first 12 minutes to all but see their chances gone.

Whatever was said in the half-time team talk was then destroyed inside five minutes as the home side added a third, Scott Hogan’s second, and it was all over with 40 minutes still to suffer.
