Mansfield Town Ladies drew both their pre-season friendlies 1-1 as they sent two sides out on the road on a busy day.

An early kick-off saw the Stagettes come from behind to draw at Woodlands before a later kick-off at Sporting Khalsa saw them concede a late equaliser.

At Woodlands a new-look Mansfield Town Ladies team unluckily went 1-0 down after 15 minutes after a cross caught on the wind and floated into the top corner.

After this early shock, the Mansfield ladies settled and started creating chances, their dominance paying off when centre forward Fee Kiernan found the top left corner from 25 yards.

Away to Sporting Khalsa Women, the deadlock was finally broken came with just 15 minutes remaining when Emily Bryan found Rachael Mullen, who sidefooted home to put the Stagettes in front.

But the lead didn’t last long as two minutes from time Sporting forced a corner which was headed in.

Both games were preceded by a minute’s silence to mourn the passing of MTLFC manager Lewis Saxby’s brother in the past couple of weeks.
