Right-back celebrates 100th appearance for the Stags with memorable win
Right-back Lee Beevers was pleased with how events played out for us as our team picked up three important points on the road with a 1-0 win over Newport County.
The game in South Wales looked set to end in a draw until Reggie Lambe popped up three minutes from time and fired home from close-range following a cross by Callum Elder.
Speaking afterwards, Beevers said: “It was a great performance from the boys. We set out with a game plan to frustrate them and going it at half-time with a clean-sheet, we did that and it was half the job done.
“We said if we came in at the end of the game with a clean sheet we would win it, which is exactly what we did. Reggie (Lambe) has come on and scored a fantastic goal at the end,” he added.
The 31-year-old believes this is one of the most satisfying wins of the season: “After the couple of results that we’ve had where it has happened against us, it was nice to go away from home and do it to them,” he said.
Beevers was pleased that the Stags were able to get a positive result away from home and believes our team are on the right track moving forward.
He continued: “It has been a problem for us all year and we have been trying to work out what it was. It is just something that happens in football.
“I think we have managed to turn a corner in the last couple of away games.
“It’s a massive confidence boost going to a place like Newport who are challenging for the playoffs. To come here and frustrate them, keep a clean-sheet and get a goal at the end is going to send shockwaves around the league and shows we can actually do it.
“Getting back-to-back wins is a massive thing especially at this stage of the season. There have been building blocks over the last two or three months and now it is coming to fruition.
“We are starting to climb the table,” he added.
