Mansfield Town 2-0 Carlisle United

Mansfield Town ended their four-game goal drought to overcome Carlisle United at One Call Stadium.

Matt Green scored the opening goal in the 63rd minute and Shaq Coulthirst sealed the points after 76 minutes.

Coulthirst forced a couple of early saves from Mark Gillespie in the Carlisle goal before Danny Rose had a goal ruled out for offside in the 35th minute.

Shaun Miller and Jamie Proctor both went close for Carlisle, while Gillespie blocked a powerful Coulthirst shot and Rose missed the target with the follow-up.

Green gave his side the lead when he cushioned home a perfect eight-yard header from Coulthirst's left-wing cross.

Coulthirst made the game safe when he arrowed a powerful low finish across the goalkeeper and inside the far post.
