Stags reserves maintain 100 per cent record

Mansfield Town reserves maintained their 100 per cent record in Group B of the Final Third Development League with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Hartlepool United at Rainworth’s Kirklington Road last night.

The Stags went 1-0 up after just nine minutes as Junior Daniel directed a header over the Hartlepool keeper, following Lindon Meikle’s left wing cross.

Mansfield doubled their lead shortly after the re-start as Louis Briscoe slammed a six-yard shot into the top corner, after the visitors were unable to clear a right wing cross by Liam Marsden.
