Accrington Stanley 1-0 Mansfield Town

Sean McConville scored the only goal of the game to give Accrington their first victory of the season with a narrow win over Mansfield Town.

Stanley took the lead when McConville's deflected shot wrong-footed Stags goalkeeper Brian Jensen.

Josh Windass and McConville both went close for Stanley, as did Billy Kee, but Jensen kept them at bay.

It was a bad-tempered game with 10 yellow cards and a melee in the 91st minute, although no one was dismissed.
