AFC Mansfield overcame one of their closest rivals with a superb 4-1 victory at Thorne on Saturday.
A brace from Dean Rick, a header from Joe Naylor and a goal for returning winger Carl Haslam were enough to secure the points. Thorne captain Darren Fell had pulled the sides level midway though the first half after Dean Rick's opening goal.
But a superb and professional 2nd half display sealed the points for 'The Bulls'.
