Mansfield Town 3-1 Notts County

Matt Green celebrates a goal for Mansfield
Mansfield's Matt Green scored with his first touch after coming off the bench against Notts

Substitutes Matt Green and Darius Henderson scored in injury time as Mansfield Town secured a dramatic derby victory over Notts County.

Notts dominated the first half, but Green came off the bench and struck home the opener with his first touch.

The visitors seemed set to earn a point through a deflected Alex Rodman shot.

But Green netted with a penalty after Mal Benning was deemed to have been fouled by Matt Tootle and Henderson ran through and fired in a third.

Green had scored twice in the corresponding fixture last season which the Stags won 5-0.

But a repeat result, or individual goalscoring feat, seemed highly unlikely as Notts seized control before the interval.

The Magpies could have been 3-0 up at the break, Jonathan Forte shooting against the post and wasting a one-on-one chance, and Jon Stead having a shot cleared off the line.

But Green's introduction sparked a much-improved display by the hosts and, although Rodman cancelled out Green's scrappy opener, the striker kept his cool with his spot-kick for his second and Henderson's first goal for the club sealed all three points.
