York City 1-2 Mansfield Town

Striker Matt Green scored his first goals since 2013 to earn Mansfield victory at York.

The ex-Birmingham striker, who rejoined the Stags in the summer, netted twice after Reece Thompson's close-range opener for the hosts.

Green equalised when he tapped in from point-blank range, then scored from 15 yards out to beat Scott Flinders at his near post.

James Berrett had York's best chance of an equaliser but shot wide.
