Mansfield Town 2-2 Port Vale

CJ Hamilton earned Mansfield a late 2-2 home draw with Port Vale after the Stags had looked dead and buried.

Trailing 2-0 with nine minutes left, Nicky Maynard pulled one back before Hamilton struck in the third of four added minutes.

Vale had gone ahead on 53 minutes when Nathan Smith got forward to turn home a low right-wing cross by Amoo from six yards.

The visitors then doubled their advantage on 66 minutes when Leon Legge finally forced home after a close-range scramble from a Worrall corner.

Substitute Maynard gave the Stags hope on 81 minutes as he instinctively drilled home first time from Cristian Montano's miscued clearance in the box.

And in added time Hamilton strode onto a Jacob Mellis pass on the left and drilled hard and low through everyone and inside the far post.
