Lambe strike helps ease Mansfield’s relegation fears
Reggie Lambe helped Mansfield Town ease their relegation worries in League Two, scoring their opener in the 2-1 home win over Dagenham and Redbridge.
Lambe, the Bermuda international, broke the deadlock 52 seconds into the second half when he scored his third goal of the season from close range, only to see Dagenham equalise on the hour with Jamie Cureton's 250th league goal.
However, Mansfield piled on the pressure and had two efforts cleared off the line before finally winning it through Junior Brown's 83rd minute winner.
It was only the second time Mans- field have scored twice in a game in five-and-a-half months. Lambe was substituted in the 78th minute.
Meanwhile, Nahki Wells was missing from the Huddersfield Town team because of a shin and thigh injury picked up in the midweek win over Reading, as manager Chris Powell saw his team beaten 3-0 by his former club Charlton Athletic.
Chris Powell said he was “embarrassed” by the reception he received on his return to Charlton.
Powell received a rapturous welcome on his first time back to the Valley and then watched as his team was thrashed as man-of-the-match Tony Watt scored two second-half goals.
“We were second best,” said Powell who left Charlton last March. “We were beaten by the better team and we just couldn't get going over the course of the game. We didn't deserve anything.
“My relationship with Charlton supporters and the way they are, I wouldn't think anything less of them. It was beyond what any supporters would do to the opposition manager. But I'm not surprised with how they were.”
