Mansfield   1 - 2   Forest Green

Conal Platt scored twice as Forest Green left it late to win their FA Cup first-round replay against Blue Square Premier rivals Mansfield at Field Mill.

Platt curled a 20-yard free-kick into the top corner to give Rovers a deserved lead just before half time.

With 20 minutes to go the Stags were level, Kyle Perry heading Gary Silk's cross into the bottom corner.

With seconds left and Mansfield going for the winner, the visitors broke away and Platt converted Sean Rigg's cross.

Forest Green now face a West Country non-League derby at Bath City in round two.


Mansfield Town manager David Holdsworth told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"I care very much for the club and we are disappointed to be out of the cup.

"Our first half performance wasn't good enough and our midfield was too nice.

"We didn't embrace and engage as much as I would us to have done.

"I was expecting a real big atmosphere here tonight and it seemed very flat but I'm not going to blame anything other than the poor first half performance."

Forest Green boss Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"Magnificent, we're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, we played superbly well.

"The equaliser was harsh on us and it changed the game for them and they gave us a torrid time.

"What we have got now is a team who will fight for each other and we dug in and we looked to counter and we scored a great goal at the death.

"Even their fans were saying that we deserved to win it - just a brilliant performance, good night."
