AFC Mansfield thought they had won it as Parkgate had offered little in goalscoring opportunities. But a side that is fighting relegation needs every point they can get.
5 minutes later and they were back on level terms when Alex Lill fired home from 8 yards with a little suspicion of offside.
The comeback was complete right at the end of the game when the ball was fired at Jimmy Ghaichem from 3 yards away, the captain turned to protect himself and the ball cannoned off the arm in front of his face. Not only a penalty but somehow a yellow card as well.
Keiran Hirst stepped up and despite Dale Sheppard diving the right way and getting a hand to the spot kick the ball crept over the line. A real sucker punch for AFC and they will be rueing the missed chances in the first half.
