Mansfield Town 0-2 Exeter City

Joel Grant
Joel Grant's early goal was his third since joining Exeter in the summer

Joel Grant and Lee Holmes scored to beat Mansfield and give Exeter their second away win in four days.

Mansfield-born Holmes created the opener with a low cross which Grant slotted home from six yards.

Grant then returned the compliment by beating three challenges to set up the unmarked Holmes before half-time.

Mansfield, who have now failed to score in six of their last seven games, made few chances and only two Brian Jensen saves stopped Exeter scoring again.
