Stags were poor despite winning - Cox

Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"It was a strange match with a strange result. We did not play very well but created enough chances to win three games today.

"But we can't keep giving away stupid little goals like that. They had three efforts on target in the first half and scored two.

"Did the sendings off change the game? Yes, I didn't think we looked like scoring until their lads got sent off."
