Matlock Town 1 Mansfield Town 2, 6th August 2007

TEENAGER Ryan Goward made a big impression as a half-time substitute for Mansfield Town tonight after he made one goal and then scored a late winner as Stags came from behind to win 2-1 in the final pre-season friendly at Matlock Town.

The 17-year-old put over a superb left wing cross to set up Lewis Trimmer for the equaliser before drilling home an unstoppable winner three minutes from the end.

It was an energetic display from a young Stags side though captain John Mullins was the best player on the pitch with a dominant performance at centre half.
