Match Preview: Penistone Church (A)

AFC Mansfield will look to build on Saturday's late victory by making the journey to South Yorkshire, with Penistone Church in the Bulls' sights.


Previous meeting

The reverse fixture between these two sides was an underwhelming one, for the second half to say the least.


A first half brace from attacker Lynton Karkach put the Bulls in firm position heading into the second half, but an inspired performance from Penistone in the second half saw Kieran Ryan and Nicky Guest bring the game back to a 2-2 draw.


Previously it was much more happy days for Mansfield, as goals from Josh Wilde, Matthew Sykes and a brace from Ross Duggan overcame Charlie Baird's goal to clinch a crucial 4-1 victory.
