Assistant manager Paul Raynor said yesterday's 5-0 Central League win over York City was 'a job well done' after a dominant display at Bootham Crescent, but admitted Stags could've scored even more against the Minstermen.
Stags' reserves got off to the best possible start when right-back Hayden White drove into the area and fired into the bottom corner to open the scoring with just a minute on the clock.
Striker Jimmy Spencer and midfielder Calum Butcher both bagged braces later in the game to make the scoreline even more emphatic.
And Raynor, who oversaw the team at Bootham Crescent whilst manager Steve Evans took training at One Call Stadium, was pleased with the outcome of the match, but believes Stags could've scored more against their youthful opponents.
"There's not many games you win 5-0 and you can be slightly disappointed," said Raynor. "I think we didn't really move the ball as quickly in the second half as we should've done.
"I think the couple of goals at the end contributed to [York's] own downfall a little bit. They got a little bit sloppy at the back and we punished them.
"To say we've won 5-0, it was a job done, a job well done, but I think we could have exploited them a little bit more if we'd have moved the ball a little bit quicker, especially in the second half.
"The attitude was spot on and the work rate was spot on. We were playing against a youthful York side who, it has to be said, were a good side and they played some lovely football."
"To say we've won 5-0, it was a job done, a job well done, but I think we could have exploited them a little bit more if we'd have moved the ball a little bit quicker, especially in the second half."
Right-back Hayden White scored the first goal and provided the cross for Jimmy Spencer to head home the second and the Stags' assistant boss wants to see more from the former Peterborough United full-back in the final third of the pitch.
"He's incredibly fast, he's a very, very good attacking full-back and that's where we want to see him, in those sorts of areas. I thought it was a fantastic ball from Rhys Bennett; I didn't expect him to hit that with his left foot but the switch was on and it was a fantastic first touch from Hayden and then a really cultured finish.
"In those sorts of areas, with his pace and the quality of his cross, he's picked out Jimmy [Spencer] with a great ball for the second.
"There were some good individual performances, Hayden was one of them."
The stand-out man for the Stags was striker Jimmy Spencer who, in addition to bagging a brace, linked the play between midfield and attack incredibly well, which pleased the on-looking Raynor.
"I thought Jimmy Spencer was absolutely magnificent, as he has been in recent weeks in the Checkatrade Trophy. He's come on in first team games and done well.
"Everyone likes to score goals but it's not just about the goals for Jimmy, it's about his all-round play and when plays like that – bringing people into the game – his link-up play is fantastic.
"The nice thing is all the guys are in there patting him on the back because they know what a good performance it was, not just the goals but his all-round performance. He's a likeable guy, people want to see him do well and I'm delighted for him."
