Lapslie put the finishing touch to a devastating set of passes as Stags pulled off a shock 3-2 success at their League One neighbours with Lapslie notching a brace.

The BBC picked their favourite seven goals of the round and asked supporters to vote.

Lapslie eventually polled 39 per cent of the vote, ironically pipping a screamer from Liam Mandeville for local rivals Chesterfield, which polled 38 per cent.

Ex-Stags striker Ollie Palmer was also among the candidates with his strike for AFC Wimbledon.
