Southport 3-1 Mansfield

Stoppage-time goals from Chris Lever and Jonathan Brown ensured Southport came back from a goal behind to beat 10-man Mansfield.

John Dempster put the Stags ahead with a six-yard strike before Lever fired in from Alan Moogan's free-kick to level.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men after Ritchie Sutton received a second yellow card.

Lever then scored a penalty, after Marcus Kelly fouled Shaun Whalley, before Brown fired from close range.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Mansfield manager Paul Cox told BBC Radio Nottingham:

Stags deserved better - Cox

"I thought the performance was excellent but I am just disappointed in the result.

"Even with 10 men we did really well and created chances, but we felt the sucker-punch in the 90th minute.

"If we produce similar performances, then results will come our way."
