Exeter City 1-2 Mansfield Town

Exeter fell to the foot of the Football League following defeat by Mansfield.

Debutant Rakish Bingham opened the scoring for the Stags when he tapped home the loose ball after Fergus Bell's effort had been saved by Christy Pym.

Bell extended the visitors' advantage with a fierce drive from the edge of the box following a corner.

Exeter improved in the second half but Matt Grimes' superb free-kick proved only a consolation for the Grecians who remain without a win this season.

Mansfield have now climbed into the top 10 in League Two while Exeter fall to the bottom of the table after Accrington won and Oxford drew.
