Sub Jake Speight got Mansfield Town back to winning ways at home with the decisive goal against Cambridge United to seal Stags first home win in six attempts in the Blue Square Premier.

United impressed in the first 20 minutes until Kyle Perry tucked away his 11th goal of the season on 27 minutes.

From then on Stags’ confidence was clearly lifted even though Chris Holroyd stole an equaliser just before the break.

But, with Ryan Williams running riot down both flanks, Cambridge were on the back foot for much of the second half and Speight came on to produce another energetic cameo appearance from the sub’s bench, which included a calmly taken winner on 73 minutes.
