Match Stats: Mansfield Town 2 Walsall 1

Here are the Match Stats from the Saddlers' League Two meeting with Mansfield Town.
Looking to earn their third win on the bounce, Walsall returned to action on Saturday afternoon as they made the trip to Field Mill to take on the in-form Stags, who hadn't lost any of their last six league games.

The first goal of the game arrived via Stags forward George Lapslie as he finished off a fine attacking move to put the ball beyond Walsall goalkeeper Owen Evans and into the back of the net.

Walsall weren't about to go down without a fight and battled their way back onto level terms via on-loan Cambridge United defender Liam Bennett unleashed a powerful effort which caught Stags stopper, Christy Pym, off guard as his clean sheet was dirtied.

Frustratingly for the Saddlers they were unable to convert their leveller to w point let alone a win as second-half substitute Will Swan put his side back into the lead with eight minutes of normal time remaining.
