Mansfield Town 2-0 Leeds United

STRIKER Liam Hearn, signed in the summer after he had quit Grimsby last season through injury, made a dream debut.

Eight minutes after coming on a second half substitute he won and converted a penalty, before adding a late second goal from a Matt Rhead flick-on as the Stags’ impressive pre-season form continued.

New signing from earlier in the day, former Stevenage midfielder Simon Heslop, started.

They again named a triallist keeper for the third consecutive friendly. This time the keeper was expected to be from Switzerland.

Trialist, Sutton, Dempster, Riley, Beevers (A. Bell 65mins), Murray (Triallist 78mins), Heslop (Clements 66mins), Trialist (Marsden 65mins), F.Bell (Thomas 78mins), Palmer (Hearn 63mins), Fisher (Rhead 45mins). Subs: Trialist, McGuire.

Leeds said they would be playing one team for an hour and then another for the last half hour.
