10 minutes later and Bradshaw’s persistence paid off after he grabbed his and AFC Mansfield’s2nd of the game. Clever approach work from Lynton Karkach sent Bradshaw clear and he clinically fired past Mansfield to send The Bulls through to the next round.
Good work in the final minutes from Glyn Cotton saw Grant Allott’s initial effort blocked but his follow up was hoisted over the bar.
