BULLS CHARGE ON!

AFC Mansfield progressed to the Semi-Finals of the League Challenge Cup at the expense of a very hard working South Normanton Athletic side.

'The Shiners' went in front early in the 1st half through Kyle Wadsworth but Chris Timons got the final touch in a goalmouth scramble to send the sides in level at the break.

An early goal 8 minutes into the re-start put 'The Bulls' ahead and in a pulsating cup tie where both sides had chances to score again the Mansfield side kept the one goal advantage.

AFC Mansfield now face Belper United in the Semi-Final at ironically South Normantons ground.
