Match Reports

Report: Accrington 0-3 Stags

9 September 2023

Mansfield Town claimed their first away league win of the season with an impressive 3-0 win as they brushed aside Accrington on a sweltering afternoon in Lancashire.

Stags continued their unbeaten start to the season and are now nine games unbeaten in league and cup, with this latest triumph likely to inject further confidence into the camp.

Davis Keillor-Dunn netted a magnificent first-half overhead kick, while George Maris was also on the scoresheet seven minutes later with a well-planted finish.

And the best was to come as Aaron Lewis made sure of the victory in the second-half with an outstanding 35-yard volley to seal Stags’ win.

The victory ends Mansfield’s hoodoo against Accrington, burying a winless league run of 14 games which stretches back to March 1961.

Aaron Lewis returned to midfield following injury while forward James Gale was handed a first start of the season as part of two changes from last Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to Bradford.

Referee Ross Joyce brandished the game’s first yellow card after six minutes when Jay Rich-Baghuelou hacked down James Gale on the left touchline amidst a promising breakaway.

And the same man got away with a second booking four minutes later when he escaped punishment after hauling down Gale again, this time midway inside the home half.

After an unsettled start from both teams, right-back Jordan Bowery attempted to spark the game into life with a curling right-flank cross in the 20th minute. But George Maris, well-monitoed at the back post, was unable to find another amber shirt as he tried to head deeper into the goal area.

Stanley carved out their first opening after 23 minutes following a counter-surge, though Josh Andrews headed narrowly wide from the edge of the six-yard box after a well-weighted cross from the left.

Keillor-Dunn gave the game the kiss of life with a sensational opening goal in the 29th minute.

Lucas Akins held it up in the Stanley half to slip it to Aaron Lewis. And after he found Gale on the right flank, the ex-Long Eaton man delivered into the centre of the area, where the ball bounced for Keillor-Dunn to control with his chest before he executed a terrific overhead kick into the net from eight yards.

And Keillor-Dunn turned from goalscorer to provider on 36 minutes as Stags again hit Stanley on the right channel.

From halfway, Lewis threaded a fine ball to Keillor-Dunn on the inside right. And his cross was inch perfect for the advancing George Maris, who did the rest with an accomplished left-footed finish from eight yards.

Akins tried to set Gale away in the 43rd minute with a rising flick-on into his path, but Gale saw his 22-yard shot quickly charged down.

In first-half injury time, Stags’ goalkeeper Christy Pym was called upon for the first time to beat away a rasping 25-yard strike from Jack Nolan.

Thirty seconds after the interval, Maris was shown a yellow card for a trip on the halfway line.

Soon after, Keillor-Dunn was in the clear as he looked to inflict further damage on Stanley.

The attacker latched on to Akins’ clever throughball to chest down and advance in between two defenders. But goalkeeper Toby Savin made a smart stop with one-hand as Keillor-Dunn attempted a shot inside the box.

On 57 minutes, George Maris made way for Hiram Boateng in Stags’ first change.

Stags presented a chance to Stanley moments later when Aden Flint was dispossessed in defence as he tried to bring the ball out from the back.

Stanley took over and Josh Andrews lashed one towards goal which Pym had to push away, before Nolan failed to make the most of the rebound as he sent his rising shot over the target.

At the other end, Stags looked to put the game out of sight and Boateng curled a venomous 25-yard shot wide of goal.

On 74 minutes, midfielder Louis Reed cracked a 25-yard free-kick behind the goal, with Stags still on top.

And Mansfield wrapped up the points on 75 minutes with another hair-raising goal.

Stanley ‘keeper Savin made a mess of a clearance upfield, directing it straight to Aaron Lewis. And the midfielder, 35 yards from goal, replied with a first-time volley which flew into the inside left post to spark the Stags’ fans into raptures behind the goal.

On 77 minutes, Stags made a double change as Will Swan and Baily Cargill were introduced for Davis Keillor-Dunn and Calum Macdonald.

There were further changes as the contest crept into injury time, with George Williams and Ollie Clarke taking to the field.

In the ninth minute of stoppage time, Swan’s sizzling low effort was turned away by Savin at his near post and at the other end, Tommy Leigh bent a 25-yard free-kick beyond the wall before it smacked into an advertising hoarding behind the goal.
