Match Commander Chief Superintendent Mark Holland said: "There was almost a two-hour containment post-match to keep risk groups apart, aggravated further by the closure of the A617 due to a road collision.

"Despite this the vast majority of fans were very responsibly behaved and both the Police and Mansfield Town, whom we work closely with, would like to praise both sets of supporters."
