FA Cup highlights: Shaw Lane 1-3 Mansfield Town

Danny Rose's impressive second-half brace helped Mansfield beat spirited Northern Premier League side Shaw Lane to reach the FA Cup second round.

Krystian Pearce gave the Stags the lead after a well-worked free-kick.

Lee Bennett levelled from close range at the second attempt, then hit a post.

Mansfield's Jacob Mellis's second-half penalty was saved by keeper Jon Stewart after being fouled but, as the Stags upped the pressure, Rose headed in, then added a spectacular scissors-kick.

The two sides were separated by 58 places and three divisions in the English football pyramid, but seventh-tier Shaw Lane showed plenty of commitment against League Two side Mansfield.

Following their equaliser, they could have taken the lead had Billy Whitehouse not hesitated as the rebound from Bennett's effort fell to him off the woodwork.

However, the Stags could have won by more, had Shaw Lane's goalkeeper Jon Stewart not played so well.

Having denied Kane Hemmings in the first half, with Rose sliding the follow-up against the post, he saved Mellis' penalty superbly after the Mansfield midfielder had been fouled by Spencer Harris.

But it was Rose, who lives not far from Shaw Lane's ground in Barnsley, who settled the tie with a perfectly timed header from Mal Benning's cross from the left, five minutes before scoring an even better goal from Alex MacDonald's ball from the other flank.

Shaw Lane manager Craig Edwards:

"We came in wanting to be competitive and we had them on the ropes for a little while. It has taken an incredible finish to kill the game off.

"When you save a penalty you start thinking it could be our day, but credit to Danny, I believe he's a local lad and ex-Barnsley and he has really delivered.

"I hope people liked what they saw today and recognise we are a small club going in the right direction, and they will want to come back and support us in the future."

Mansfield boss Steve Evans:

"If you're watching in the Premier League it's the Drogbas and Ronaldos who score goals like that. If Harry Kane did it this weekend, we'd be talking about it forever.

"Danny only lives four streets away from Shaw Lane and probably knew three-quarters of the supporters, so I'm very impressed with the professional job he did.

"We always knew fitness would play a part and in the end it came down to some more very good finishing."
