It was nothing more than the home side had deserved during a match which they bossed throughout and displayed their full attacking potential.

Mansfield held a 1-0 lead going into the break before they turned on the second style to seal the points thanks to two goals inside seven minutes from Pearce and Angol’s late spot-kick.

The Mariners did spoil the day a touch after pulling a consolation goal back when Sam Jones scored yet another penalty with five minutes to go.
