MANSFIELD Town are currently locked at 1-1 against Kidderminster after Matt Green’s poachers goal just a minute before the break levelled the contest.

Kidderminster started the game brightest and went ahead after eight minutes when Jack Bryne headed home from seven yards after evading his markers from a Marvin Johnson corner.

It should have been 2-0 on 20 minutes, but Anthony Malbon’s first touch badly let him down when he found himself one on one with Alan Marriott.

Stags fought their way back into the game and blew a number of half-chances through Jones, Howell, Rhead and Green.

But a minute before the break the growing pressure finally told as another long ball into the Kidderminster box caused the home side problems.

This time Rhead connected well only to see his header back across goal saved by Lewis.

But Matt Green was on hand to score one of his simplest goals ever as he poked into the empty net from two yards.
