Misjudged Benning's corner, seemingly deceived by the flight of the ball. Shame as he had nothing else to do in the remaining 80 minutes with Mansfield not managing another shot on target... 5
Returned to his more familiar role at centre-half as Curle went with a back three and defended well up against Mansfield's front men, bar one mix-up with his skipper... 7

Headed a good early chance wide and might have done more to hook away Benning's corner, but was dominant in the air and let very little past him all game... 7
Most of his appearances have come in midfield lately but he was back in defence here, though that made no difference to his performance level. Read the game well and coughed up precious few chances... 7
There were times when he looked like a player who hasn't played in over two months but improved as the game wore on, making one brilliant tackle to break up a threatening Mansfield attack... 6
Worked his way up and down the left flank with admirable persistence, even getting a shot off. Little to concern him defensively as he helped to keep the visitors quiet. Also sent in some decent deliveries from set-pieces... 7
Timed his run and jump perfectly to head in Pollock's pinpoint corner, his second goal of the season. Added experience to his young partner's youthful enthusiasm in midfield as Town got the better of their counterparts... 7
Had some early joy in the number 10 role, almost seeing his cross turned in by a defender. But was kept quiet for the most part... 6
Hugely impressive on debut. So assured and composed, belying his tender years. Had a knack of picking up pockets of space and popping off passes. Crowned his display with a perfect corner for Foley to head in... 8 CHRON STAR MAN
Flashed in and out of the game. Some terrific bursts of pace had Mansfield defenders on the back foot and created space for others, but wasn't able to couple that with an end product... 7
A frustrating afternoon of hard graft without reward for the Cobblers forward. Almost got on the end of things but wasn't to be, his threat snuffed out by the visitors... 6
Gave the Stags defence a few jitters during his short cameo, playing his first minutes in two months... 6
Long-awaited return to action after an ankle injury, if only for a few minutes. First appearance since January and only his third in all for the Cobblers... 6
On in stoppage-time... 6
