Matt Rhead was the hero yesterday at the One Call Stadium as Mansfield finally put an end to a grey run of form, the burly hit man heading in a Geohaghon throw in the 89th minute.
It was another scrappy affair and one which could have gone either way, the visitors having numerous chances to seize on Stags errors thoughout the first half.
Loanee keeper Liam Mitchell came to the Stags rescue midway through the second half when he pulled off a sublime save to deny Matt Taylor a point blank header. A slip from Mitchell, Geohaghon & Sutton in the final minute nearly saw the visitors capitalize however Adam Murray, who misses next weeks trip to Workington after picking up his 5th booking of the season yesterdat, cleared to Substitute Louis Briscoe who won a throw after charging forward. What happened next was what Mansfield needed, Geohaghon's bullet finding Rhead who nodded in through a crowd of players to smash the rising tension into a million pieces.
