Exeter City 0-1 Mansfield Town

Lee Stevenson struck the only goal as Mansfield continued their upturn in form with victory over Exeter.

The crucial goal came when the hosts' defence failed to deal with a long ball leaving Stevenson to find the corner.

Exeter dominated the second half but Tom Nichols, Liam Sercombe and Jimmy Keohane were all denied by Stags keeper Alan Marriott.

The win extends Mansfield's unbeaten run to three while Exeter have lost three of their last four.
