Stags Reserves went down 3 - 0 to local rivals Chesterfield in a fixture at
Saltergate on Tuesday afternoon.

Stags with 5 first team squad members including Tony Vaughan, were up against the Spireites who had an even stronger first team input, an certainly in the first 45
minute period the Stags had the upper hand.

However in the second period Stags were over powered a little, and when Clarke got caught
dwelling on the ball, the Spireites took advantage, and a second goal soon followed.

Stags removed some of there first team squad during the second half and Subs Christie, Williamson, Arnold and Holmes entered the fray.

Overall a good first 45 for the Stags, but fading away as some of the more
experienced first teamers were withdrawn.
