It had been a busy week, few days really, of transfer activity leading into Mansfield’s trip to Burton but even with the movement it wasn’t enough to prevent us being beaten by the league 2 highflyers.

We got back into the game in the second half but the early goal from Matt Palmer (8) and then the second from Kelvin Maynard (24) at the midway point of the first half left Burton in complete control at half time at the Pirelli Stadium.

Reggie Lambe’s (51) close range finish gave us hope but when former Burton man Billy Kee put a late header wide that was that with Burton winning two-one….

Defeat wasn’t something we anticipated going into this game as it would be either a win or a draw as these were the pre-match polls findings:-

Burton v Mansfield

Mansfield win 50%
Draw 50%
Burton win 0%

When you’ve been beaten it’s hard to pick out a ‘Man of the Match’, but that’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote – did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer us the most at Burton?

Select the name that you want from the list in the MotM poll to your right, but why not also share your thoughts with us on your thinking, and the game itself, with some views below.
