Mansfield suffered their first defeat in five games as former Stag Ollie Palmer’s eighth goal of the season saw Leyton Orient squeeze out a narrow victory at Brisbane Road.

After a goalless first half Palmer headed home shortly after the restart, meaning Mansfield will be looking to finish their campaign on a high at home to Cambridge next Saturday.

Though the match was played at the sedate tempo of an end-of-season encounter between two sides with little to play for, both teams fashioned chances in the first half.
