Pontefract 3 AFC Mansfield 2

A game that had everything from the off, meant that the Bulls fell to a narrow defeat, but that is only half the story. 

The Bulls were reduced to 10 men after only 4 minutes when Pat Lindley was sent off and went down to 9 men in the final few minutes after Lynton Karkach was sent to the dressing room. 

The Bulls went two nil down in the first half, but had a inspired first 6 minutes of the second half to get back on even terms.  However, Pontefract had the last word with a winner to end the Bulls spirited defence for the majority of the game playing with fewer players.

Th second half performance by the Bulls certainly should have produced more than we came away from Pontefract with but in the end the extra men told. 

Full report from yesterday's game will be on line soon.
