Stags’ goal hero Green praises fellow strikers

MANSFIELD Town striker Matt Green took his Stags tally to four goals in six games in the 2-0 win at Darlington on Saturday.

Green, who struck twice in the opening minutes to set up a third consecutive victory, said: “That was a great result for us and I was more than happy to get on the scoresheet twice, though getting three points was the most important thing.

“For the first goal they just stood off me and so I thought I would get a yard and shoot and it went into the bottom corner.

“The second was more instinct than anything as I managed to turn on it and got a good strike on goal.

“Ross Dyer did a tremendous amount of work for me and he has been brilliant for us as has Paul Connor when he’s come on.

“The boys are really coming together and if we continue to apply ourselves like today there is no reason we can’t have a successful season.”
