SKY BET LEAGUE 2 | MANSFIELD TOWN 0 LUTON TOWN 2
James Baxendale, who marked his Stags debut with a goal-scoring Man of the Match performance two weeks ago, was again named among the starting XI as Mansfield took on Luton Town in the latest Sky Bet League 2 clash of the season.

As with his second appearance last weekend, Baxo and his team-mates couldn't emulate his first appearance as Nathan Jones enjoyed his first win as Luton boss as they picked up all three points away from home.

The visitors took the lead after seven minutes when Pelly Ruddock's cross was turned in by Paddy McCourt to give Luton their first goal in 366 minutes. McCourt then turned provider for Ruddock who smashed in and sealed victory around ten minutes after half-time.

A disappointing result for the mid-table Stags who are four points off a play-off place, with nineteen games remaining.

VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH | AFC FYLDE 2 WORCESTER CITY 3
Amadou Bakayoko was named among the starting XI as Worcester City travelled to Kellamergh Park to face AFC Fylde in the latest Vanarama National League North fixture of the season.

Worcester City pulled off something of a shock against the fourth-placed AFC Fylde as Bakayoko, who recently penned a six-month contract extension, gave City an early sixth minute lead.

Then on 19 minutes Daniel Nti added a second from the penalty spot which also saw Fylde reduced to ten-men when Josh Langley was shown a straight red card.

Fylde then pulled one back after 33 minutes through Dion Charles before Danny Rowe added a second 4 minutes into the second half.

Finally, with 9 minutes to go, Nti defied the odds to score the winner with a brilliant finish in the top corner, an all-important win for the visitors who move to 16th in the table.

Jordan Murphy was not named in the squad for Saturday's match.
