Mansfield Town see off rivals Notts County 2-0

15 August 2015

Mansfield Town kicked-off Match Round 2 in style with a 2-0 victory at fierce rivals Notts County in Sky Bet League 2.

In their first Football League clash since 2008, Chris Clements and Ryan Tafazolli scored the goals to maintain the Stags’ unbeaten start to the season.

Adam Murray’s Mansfield started the brighter but had to wait until the 36th minute to get the opener, with Clements scoring a left-footed shot following a Matt Green through-ball.

They came close to adding a second through front man Green before defender Tafazolli made sure of the points by heading home a Malvind Benning cross with 10 minutes to go.

The Stags remain undefeated at Meadow Lane in 18 years, and unbeaten after two games in Sky Bet League 2 2015/16, following their draw with Carlisle United in Match Round 1.
