Half Time Report: Mansfield Town in the lead over increasingly dangerous Notts County

Joe Jones

Notts County are a goal down at Mansfield Town in Saturday's League Two clash at the One Call Stadium.

The Stags were dangerous from the off and duly took the lead after just six minutes when Malvind Benning's cross evaded the Magpies defence and fell to Matt Green, who struck with his right foot to put the ball to the left of Scott Loach and into the net.

Mark Cooper's charges set about trying to get back into the game and embarked on a positive spell of football that saw Jon Stead, Izale McLeod and Liam Noble all come close, in particular Noble's shot 41 minutes in that flew inches wide of the post.

Two minutes of added time passed without incident and the ref's whistle confirmed a half-time lead for Adam Murray's side, though in the second half the Magpies will be attacking towards their own fans.

Expected better myself but a goal can change that, Notts must add pressure onto the Stags but it goes to show what early goes can do.
