Mansfield Town were unchanged for a third game on the trot for this afternoon’s visit of League Two bottom club Newport County.

It was no surprise as Stags came into the game on the back of two successive away wins.

But there was a welcome return from injury on the bench for midfielder Chris Clements.

Newport, playing away under new boss John Sheridan for the first time, included new loan signings Scot Bennett, from Notts County, and Zak Ansah, from Charlton.
