Mansfield 2-1 Cheltenham
Mansfield stormed to their second win in four days beating Cheltenham 2-1 at Field Mill.

Visiting keeper Steve Book suffered a nightmare first half hour when he allowed Mark Blake's close-range effort under his body after five minutes.

And then he watched Shayne Bradley's 25th minute header hit the bar and cannon off his body into the net as it fell.

But Book went on to make some excellent saves to deny Bradley, Chris Greenacre, Craig Disley and Liam Lawrence.

And Cheltenham more than played their part in an end-to-end affair.

Mansfield keeper Bobby Mimms tipped over efforts from Mike Duff and Hugh McAuley in the first half, and also got down well to deny Duff from close range.

But, after keeping out debutante Chris Iwelumo's close-range header, Mimms could not deny him a second time.

The Cheltenham striker blasted home after 69 minutes from Martin Devaney's through-ball to set up a nervous finish.

Mansfield: Mimms, Robinson, Asher, Pemberton, Hassell, Disley, Corden, Blake, Williams, Greenacre, Bradley. Subs: Pilkington, Jervis, Bacon, Boulding, Lawrence.

Cheltenham: Book, Griffin, Freeman, Howarth, Walker, Duff, Yates, Howells, McAuley, iwelumo, Alsop. Subs: Bloomer, Higgs, Devaney, Jackson, McCann.

Referee: B Burns (Scarborough)
