Mansfield Town’s poor home results this season continued today as they succumbed to a 3-2 defeat against an excellent Accrington Stanley side on a dark, dismal and drizzly afternoon at One Call Stadium.

Accrington dominated the first half hour after going ahead on three minutes and would have sewn the game up but for some great saves from Brian Jensen.

Against the run of play, Matt Green, celebrating his 29th birthday, levelled the scores on 27 minutes.

But the Stags failed to net again in their best spell of the game before the break.

After the interval there were few clear chances until Accrington struck again through ex-Stag Billy Kee on 72 minutes, with his 10th of the season, and sub Terry Gornell on 84 minutes wrapped the game up.

There was late hope as Chris Clements bagged a splendid 25 yard free kick on 88 minutes.
