Mansfield Town’s home ‘friendly’ with Sheffield Wednesday ended with a mass brawl tonight as tempers finally boiled over following a series of ill-tempered challenges by Owls striker Fernando Forestieri at the One Call Stadium.

The sides squared up just before the end but then it finally erupted after the whistle with stewards trying to separate players amid the flying fists and boots.

It was an unsavoury end to a game that had seen Stags’ excellent pre-season continue with a deserved 2-1 win.
