Aaron Collins scores dramatic late winner as Forest Green beat Mansfield

Aaron Collins grabbed a dramatic injury-time winner to seal the points for Forest Green in a thrilling 4-3 win at Mansfield.

The Stags, who have only won twice at home in the league all season, took a third-minute lead when Alex MacDonald chested down Mal Benning’s cross and CJ Hamilton beat everyone to it and made space to tuck home.

Danny Rose made it 2-0 as he glanced home a header from a long MacDonald throw.

A thrilling end to the half saw Hamilton hit a post before Farrend Rawson gave Rovers a lifeline in the fifth added minute as he headed home a Joseph Mills free-kick.

Seven minutes after the break Rawson levelled with a near-post header from a Jack Aitchison corner.

Rovers then went ahead on the hour as Carl Winchester rifled home a low shot from 20 yards.

But Nicky Maynard drove home from James Clarke’s fine pass in the 90th minute to seemingly snatch a point only for Collins to pop up and rifle home a low Mills cross in the sixth minute of added time.
