Stags and Imps get involved after Michael O'Connor brought down Calum Butcher

Mansfield Town made a winning start to their Checkatrade Trophy bid when they triumphed 2-1 at Lincoln City in last night’s opening group game at Sincil Bank.

Stags went behind to a goal from Mansfield old boy Matt Rhead but hit back through Calum Butcher and Tyler Walker with the Imps’ misery complete when Michael O’Connor was sent off.
