Baxendale wins Man-of-the-Match poll

12 January 2016

Debutant James Baxendale has been voted as the supporters' Man-of-the-Match for his performance in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Stevenage.

The Walsall loanee received 64 percent of the vote, which took place on the Stags Wall, ahead of midfielder Jack Thomas and defender Blair Adams in joint second place with 10 percent each.

After providing an energetic link between the Stags' midfield and striker Matt Green for the first hour of the match, Baxendale received the ball in the Stevenage half before curling a wonderful effort past Chris Day in the Boro goal to give the Stags a 2-0 lead. 

The 23-year-old then received a standing ovation from the One Call Stadium crowd when he was replaced by Matty Blair in the 87th minute.
