Mansfield 1 v 1 Youth Team, report

20 October 2014

Yates goal rescues a point...


If last week’s game against Chesterfield was remembered for the sublime goal of Mason Warren, then this one must be the ridiculousness as Mansfield failed to take all three points thanks to a miss from close range with 10 minutes to play.

A quiet first-half saw neither side able to take the initiative and the Millers could have led on half-time only to be denied by a magnificent save from Stags’ step-in ‘keeper.

The game continued to be dominated by the defences until 70 minutes in when a slip at the back allowed the home side to take the lead. It should have then been sealed when the ball was cut back into the six-yard box, to the young striker who blazed high over the bar with nobody between him and the gaping goal.

The Millers made them pay immediately when Jerry Yates found the back of the net immediately after to give the Millers point.

Team: Denton, Bailey (Shelley 80), Smalley (Potts 60), Fenton, Peace-McDonald, Hallatt, Norfolk (Gibson 70), Wiles, Muskwe, Yates, Warren.
