Match action: Relive Mansfield Town’s 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle

Mansfield Town returned to winning ways on Saturday with a 1-0 win over high-flying Plymouth.

The vital win was secured thanks to a first-half goal from Vadaine Oliver and came less than 24 hours after the departure of Paul Cox.

With manager Paul Cox calling time on his tenure last night, Plymouth might have thought they would bring their seven game unbeaten League run and meanest defensive record in the division to a club in turmoil.

Instead, Murray managed to quickly galvanise his troops and bring out of them a performance so many fans had longed to see.

Gone was the direct football Cox had favoured, players instead encouraged to express themselves within a 4-3-3 framework and, although they tired, the Stags fully deserved their three points which were celebrated by a deafening din from the stands.
