Putting your centre back up front, 18 games into a season, when itís 1.1, you are away from home and protecting an unbeaten run has got to be up there with one of the strangest decisions Iíve seen.

ÖÖ..::: for me that was deserved today. I think we looked just as likely as them going forward. We tried to win the match by playing football where as they just resorted to long ball.

Agreed. I can see why they are where they are in the division but hopefully we can learn from this game that our style can compete with anyone else.

Öyeah I canít see why youíd stick a big man upfront in the last few minutes.

Itís not like we are a defensively weak team of midgets known for conceding late goals to lose gamesÖoh waitÖ

Flint has had an incredible goal scoring record throughout his career including a number of late pivotal goals (for Sheff Wed in playoffs last season I think and for us against Brentford for instance). He is very well suited to that tactic.

That was an excellent game of football against two evenly matched sides.
That was a penalty second half.
The game got stretched as it went on and was scenes of jubilation. Didnít look 8,000 today, gaps in DR and TE but not having any negativity tonight because the last few weeks have just been depressing.

We simply needed a win and typical football always a game you least expect it in.
Bloody hell Kemp is a good footballer, thought Reed was good for them playing his effective role as he did at Swindon.

Nice for us to nick a late scrambled goal and do it to another team when we have conceded goals like that all season.

Young Nigel must be fed up on his visits to Swindon. Been done over by us a few times now.

Thought it was a thoroughly good game of football today.  For periods of the game, Mansfield had the upper hand with their man to man press and numbers in midfield, but the space Kemp found without the burden of being the third midfielder was everything he needed.

The extra man in midfield caused two things, I think.  First, it stopped both of the wide central defenders from pushing too far ahead too quickly - the midfield had the space ahead of them, preventing us from going too cavalier.  The other aspect was that we had number centrally when Mansfield got the ball.  It's still a weak bunch defensively, but having six in there at least causes space to be at a premium.  Even if we don't track a runner or watch a player drift away from a marker, there isn't a huge gulf for them to be found in.  It allows us to gather our senses a little.  Now, it did make it a bit harder to build and sustain pressure going the other way, but I think that played into Kemp and Youngs hands a little, they both like to run at people rather than be part of a big build up.

Still going to be a challenge to sustain form when you inly really have one or two players worthy of bringing on, and on another day they may well have bagged three or four goals, like Stockport.  Overall though, I think that line-up gave us more of a chance of being in the game.

That was ace! My depression has lifted. Good to see a battling performance with some quality thrown in. Well done to all Town fans for getting behind them.

Great win. Good to see itís us scoring a late winner. Didnít go today and didnít watch so canít comment - seems like Khan had a real good game and it helped having Kinsella behind him. Kemp and Young unreal finds in the window but gonna be shit come January. Louis Reed table 4 2 you jumped up fuck haha. Donít get the Flint chat- common sense to put a 6ft 6 Shithouse in the air upfront against a leaky defence whoís biggest defender is 6ft.

Finally stopped that awful rut. Anyone can beat anyone in this shite league. Looking forward to Wimbledon now. Some quality pictures here https://x.com/official_stfc/status/1728473233907679352?s=46&t=ogDLXJ96cK_WBQahaJzdyg

Surprise surprise Clough thinks our first goal should have been disallowed. Nothing wrong in being a bad loser I guess but in my opinion that guy takes it to new levels. Don't think he has ever deserved to lose a game
