Trialist Steve Jennings red-carded as Stags reserves lose at Hull

Mansfield Town trialist Steve Jennings was controversially sent off near the end of Stags reserves’ 2-1 defeat by Hull City at North Ferriby United last night.

The former Coventry City midfielder looked baffled as he was shown a second yellow card for alleged dissent six minutes from time.

Striker Matt Rhead had headed Mansfield in front on 24 minutes from a long Ben Hutchinson free kick.

But the hosts equalised shortly after the re-start when Nick Proschwitz’s unleashed a low 25-yard strike, which squirmed under the body of Liam Mitchell.

Lindon Meikle, Rhead, Hutchinson and Ollie Palmer all had further chances before James Armstrong stabbed home a cross by Will Aimson to put the Tigers ahead on 69 minutes.

STAGS: Mitchell, Marsden, Black (C. Green), McCombe, Tafazolli (Birch), Poku, Hutchinson, S. Jennings, Meikle, Rhead (Hemagou), Palmer. Subs not used: Waldram, J. Thomas.
