Mansfield Town 3-1 Hartlepool United

Striker Matt Green scored twice against Hartlepool to end Mansfield's run of five games without a victory.

Green converted Nathan Thomas' free kick to put the Stags ahead after 24 minutes.

Hartlepool equalised when a clearance hit Krystian Pearce and looped into his own net for a bizarre own goal.

Substitute Adi Yussuf smashed the ball in to regain the lead after the break, and Green sealed all three points from close range with nine minutes left.
