    Salford City 2-0 Mansfield: 10-man Ammies keep promotion push alive

     1:58
    Highlights of the Sky Bet League Two match between Salford and Mansfield.

    Ten-man Salford kept their promotion hopes alive as they cut the gap on the play-off places to one point after a 2-0 home victory over Mansfield.

    Despite a promising start from the visiting Stags, the home side opened the scoring inside five minutes with Ash Hunter converting his first goal since December.

    Heroics from Vaclav Hladky - on the way to a 20th league clean sheet - were needed to preserve the Ammies' advantage as he pawed clear a powerful George Lapslie header.

    Salford tightened their grip on the game shortly after the hour mark when Ian Henderson notched his fifth goal in six outings with a beautifully controlled volley into the far corner.

    Home midfielder Richie Towell was shown a straight red card for retaliating to a Kellan Gordon challenge while Henderson squandered the chance for his second of the afternoon when his spot-kick was saved by Aidan Stone.
