Mansfield extended their unbeaten league run to five games after hammering struggling Ebbsfleet United.
Ben Hutchinson and Fleet's Liam Enver-Marum traded strikes from outside the box before a Craig Stone own goal gave Mansfield a 2-1 lead at half-time.
The home side added to their lead thanks to Anthony Howell's left-footed effort from just outside the area.
Matt Green rounded off the scoring from the penalty spot after Hutchinson was fouled by Phil Walsh.
The Stags sit eighth in the table, four points behind the play-offs, but Ebbsfleet are 22nd, two points off safety.
