Accrington Stanley 2-1 Mansfield Town

Accrington ended a four-game winless run with home victory over Mansfield.

The visitors started the better in an end-of-season dead rubber and were rewarded just before half-time as Jamie McGuire's drive found the top corner.

John Coleman's side responded shortly after the break and were level through Seamus Conneely's well placed finish after Josh Windass' header was saved.

Stanley secured the win with 20 minutes to go as striker Terry Gornell fired home from a tight angle.

The result means Accrington finish the campaign in 17th position whilst Adam Murray's Mansfield end the season in 21st place.
