Two goals in a minute late in the game saw County salvage a point at Manor Farm on Saturday morning.

The Stags took the lead on 32 minutes through Dan Heron and when the same player scored again just before half time the visitors looked set for all three points.

But the Young Hatters dominated the second half and reduced the deficit 8 minutes from time when Byrne scored from the spot after Danny Meadowcroft had been pushed in the box.

And within a minute Byrne completed the comeback when he converted a Jamie Baguley cross to score his 11th goal of the season.

County: Coppinger; Jones, Baguley, Hadfield, Meadowcroft, Best, Cartner (Callery), Byrne, Bailey (Le Fondre), Davies (Pearson), Oakes.
