Stags put five past Manchester City...on this day in 1964

Have your say

Mansfield Town were just too good for Manchester City, on this day in 1964.

Stags beat their Lancashire hosts 5-3 in front of 8,789 at Maine Road in the second round of the League Cup.

Roy Chapman bagged a brace, adding to goals from Ken Wagstaff, Alan Tyrer and Brian MacReady.

Tyrer’s goal came when someone in the crowd blew a whistle, the City players stopped and the Stags man ran through unopposed to find the net.

Mansfield were actually 5-1 up at one stage, before electing to ‘take the Mickey’ as one press report put it, conceding two more goals but holding on to progress to the next round.
