Nottingham Forest, who were Mansfield Town’s third Championship friendly opponents at the One Call Stadium in a week, eventually ran out comfortable 4-0 winners on Saturday.
The Stags, however, controlled a good part of the first half and put in another encouraging performance.
Forest led 1-0 at half-time and two late goals by Apostolos Vellios put a gloss on the scoreline for the visitors.
