Horspath: Rob Cattell, Aaron Laman, Craig piston
Mansfield Road: Jamie Cockfield (2), Soufian Kessabi (2)
Horspaths first home game of the season was one they will want to forget quickly.1 nil up after 2 mins through Rob Cattell and passing it around for fun. On thirty mins the game changed when a routine free kick from Jamie Cockfield sailed passed a stranded Gavin Busby in the path goal, Mansfield Road were now in the game .
Straight from the kick off Horspath got a second Aaron Laman sliding in at the back post. on 50 mins Mansfield drew level again when Cockfield rolled the ball back across goal and Busbys day got worse when he bundled the ball in through his legs. Road then had a goal ruled out for offside before Soufian Kessabi fired them in front on the hour. In the 70th min path drew level when Craig piston headed in Eddie Parkers cross .but Horspath allowed Kessabi in again to win the game for Mansfield Road with 10 mins left . With 10 behind the ball Horspath couldn't force another equaliser. Road held on for the 3 points ,on a day Mr Busby will definitely want to forget !!! .
