A superb finish by Nathan Thomas earned Mansfield Town a 1-1 draw in their away friendly at Conference North Tamworth this afternoon.
An early mistake by new keeper Scott Shearer saw former Stags striker Ross Dyer put Tamworth into a 1-0 half-time at The Lamb.
However, the visitors settled into the game well after an uncomfortable first 15 minutes on a bobbly surface and should have been level by the break.
They had to wait until the 55th minute before Thomas lofted the ball under the far angle from the edge of the box.
After that the game died a little on a warm afternoon as the subs rolled on, though the lively Adi Yussuf three times forced saves from the home sub home keeper near the end.
