LAST TIME WE MET

The two sides last met in Stags’ first home game of the season and the match finished 1-1 after a spectacular strike from Robins’ defender Daniel O’Shaughnessy.

Stags had taken the lead early in the second half when striker Matt Green slipped between two Cheltenham defenders and laid the ball off for midfielder Mitch Rose, who slotted it home from 10 yards out. 

Stags were good value for their lead but were pegged back in the 80th minute by a stunning strike from O’Shaughnessy. 

The centre-half carried the ball over halfway before unleashing a thunderbolt of a drive from 30 yards out which flew into the roof of the net.
