Brian Graham, Joe Morrell and Danny Wright on target for Cheltenham

Second-half goals from Brian Graham, Joe Morrell and Danny Wright earned Cheltenham an impressive 3-0 home win over Mansfield Town.

Former Hibernian striker Graham headed in his first goal for the club six minutes into the second half after a free-kick delivery from Morrell.

And young Bristol City loan midfielder Morrell opened his own scoring account in the 70th minute, curling a shot past Conrad Logan from 25 yards.

Harry Pell hit the post from long range in between the two goals and Daniel O'Shaughnessy also hit the upright in the first half.

Mansfield did have chances on the break in the first half but Lee Angol was wasteful from some promising positions and Cheltenham were in total control in the second half.

Stags manager Steve Evans, who had been warned by referee Brett Huxtable in the first half, was sent to the stand with 15 minutes left for his antics on the touchline.

Substitute Wright added the third in the 88th minute, finishing calmly after a pass from Jerell Sellars, who was denied a goal of his own by Conrad Logan in stoppage time.
