DISAPPOINTED Guiseley boss Paul Cox admitted his team never turned up as their FA Cup adventure came to a painful end at Mansfield.

The Lions, making their first appearance in the second round, were beaten 3-0 and had defenders Darren Holden and Chris M'Boungou sent off.

Jimmy Spencer's first hat-trick of his career made it a miserable return to Field Mill for former Mansfield boss Cox.

The Guiseley manager said: "We never got to grips with the game, not even from the start. I was disappointed we didn't apply ourselves right in the first half.

"You go down to ten men and then nine and it's basically damage limitation. But we had to impose ourselves on the game from the start and never did that.

"Sometimes referees should have a five-second think about decisions but that didn't have any bearing on our first 25 to 30-minute performance. I've no qualms about the result."

Left back Holden was dismissed just before half-time for a rash challenge on Spencer, before M'Boungou followed after the break for a second booking.

Cox said: "I actually thought that Darren slipped and it was more clumsy. I'll have to see it again to see if it was as dangerous as everyone was making out.

"From then on, it was an uphill task and then obviously we lost Chris, so it was a case of trying to keep the score down. But I thought we paid for the way we started the game."

In a stormy match, there were also a few spats on the sideline between the two dugouts.

Mansfield boss Steve Evans said: "They had a game plan to be very physical. I think that was very evident from the first 30 seconds.

"You're never going to beat us by just turning up and wanting to be physical. It was as comprehensive as you'd want it to be."
