Stephen McLaughlin scored the only goal of the game on Wednesday night to send Mansfield Town to the League Two play-off final at Wembley.
The Isle Of Doagh man gave his side the lead away to Northampton Town in the second leg of the play-off semi final at Sixfields as Elliott Hewitt’s low cross found McLaughlin in the box and his first time finish went past Liam Roberts.
The goal came just after the half hour mark and made it 3-1 to Nigel Clough’s side on aggregate.
