Super Mansfield Town prepared for there FA Cup replay with Lincoln City on Wednesday night with a controlled 4-1 victory over struggling Ebbsfleet United at the One Call Stadium this afternoon.
The Stags controlled the match from the off and certainly deserved four goals if not more. Ben Hutchinson opened the scoring to warm the light and freezing crowd on 14 minutes with an exquisite curling finishing from Clements' tee-up.
Liam Enver-Marum pulled Fleet level on 22 minutes as he squirmed a shot beyond the returning Marriott following Matt Godden's flick.
Mansfield came close far too many times to note and were always likely to score again, Lindon Meikle providing the assist for a Louis Briscoe volley on 36 minutes, the volley taking a deflection on the way in.
The second half was a little tame and boring to watch, that was before Anthony Howell embarked on a solo run to drive in his first goal of the season on 69 minutes, before Matt Green converted from the spot eight minutes later after Ben Hutchinson was fouled by Phil Walsh.
