    • 90+4' All over - Suarez's handballed goal is the difference between the sides after a brilliant second half from Mansfield.
    • 92+3' Suarez wins a free-kick to take the pressure off. Four minutes being added on.
    • 90+2' Geohaghon throws long again and when the ball comes back out, his low cross is fallen on at the near post by Jones.
    • 90+1' Green with a pop that Jones palms away. Excellent effort.
    • 90' Flag up against Green, who was offside on this occasion.
    • 90' The free-kick is headed away and Coates clears the rebound.
    • 89' Jones with a jittery clearance under pressure. Rhead then taken out by Reds youngster Flanagan near the corner flag - yellow card.
    • 87' Geohaghon hurls in another throw-in that Carragher nods away at the near post under pressure.
    • 86' Green free a few yards out from a flick-on but the flag goes up... harsh again! Jones makes the save anyway, but Mansfield have been very hard-done-by by the officials today.
    • 85' Great pressure from the home players to force Liverpool to hit long. They can't keep the ball though.
    • 84' A long throw comes in which comes off a Liverpool man on its way across goal - but a goal-kick is awarded.
    • 83' The Stags send a free-kick into the mixer, hacked away...
    • 81' Mansfield change: Matthew Rhead on for Clements.

    • 79' Liverpool change: Jon Flanagan on for Wisdom.
    • 78' Wisdom down with cramp. Downing helps him before realising that the ball is back in play and leaving him to his agony...
    • 77' Downing gets to the right byline and finds Shelvey on the far side, who controls with his chest and volleys wide of the near post.
    • 75' The fire is going out of Mansfield as Liverpool keep the ball in defence.
    • 73' The crowd today is seven and a half thousand. Ninety-six seats behind the goal remember the Hillsborough dead, who are named on them: a nice gesture from Mansfield to Liverpool.
    • 72' Another penalty shout for Manfield, but Andre Marriner blows for offside. Green was just off.
    • 71' Howell cuts in from the left but cannot see a shot. Daniel out on the left then sends a deflected cross to the near post where Jones just makes the stop. Awkward moment.
    • 69' After an easy start, it has been far from plain sailing for Liverpool today - indeed they are lucky to be winning.
    • 68' Appeals for a penalty as the ball comes in but Liverpool clear and Downing counters down the right. He finds Suarez who helps the ball on to Shelvey, who is in on the left... his strike is across goal.
    • 67' Wisdom concedes a corner. There is still time for Mansfield.
    • 66' The Stags fans still behind their players, who are giving everything on the bobbly pitch.
    • 64' Mansfield change: Colin Daniel on for Briscoe. /// @Murray_Hughes (just before the goal): "Pretty even game both sides playing well even though most of liverpools best players are missing!"
    • 64' Green in behind on the left, but bends his shot over the bar.
    • 62' Mansfield boss Paul Cox is still steaming down there. But what was Suarez supposed to do? Give up the goal? What do you think? Tweet me @symco_eurosport
    • 60' Unlucky for Mansfield - and they were pressuring so well, a goal looked on the cards for them.
    • 59' GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! SUAREZ - WITH HIS HAND! 2-0! He even shows his hand to the home fans in acknowledgement of the accident - his shot was saved by Marriott and the ball came back off him.
    • 56' First chance for the Uruguayan - he fires wide with the outside of his boot.
    • 55' Two changes for Liverpool as they come under intense pressure: Luis Suarez on for Sturridge and Jordan Henderson on for Suso.
    • 54' At the other end Sturridge has space in the box but fires wide of the far post.
    • 53' Geohaghon leaps to head thunderously towards goal, with Jones blocking, then Green almost scores from two yards out with a great jumping backheel! It hit Allen on the arm... another penalty shout denied!
    • 53' Briscoe pounding down the right as Robinson flies back to cut it out - handball to Mansfield, surely, on the edge of the box... or just inside? - then Briscoe fires wide of the near post. Corner to Mansfield - Jones saved.
    • 52' Clements sends a ball into the box and Beevers wins a header before Meikle finds Green whose shot is just blocked! Desperate defending again.
    • 51' Huge pressure at the start of this half by the Conference National side.
    • 50' Another cross, this time from the left, almost gives Mansfield an equaliser as Jones is unsighted by a defender and the ball jumps out of his grasp.

    • 48' Briscoe fires in a shot that Liverpool block, and back come Mansfield...
    • 48' The free-kick causes chaos in the Liverpool box as first Green then Howell see shots blocked.
    • 47' Sturridge jumps to block a John Thompson clearance. He does not manage to do so but picks up a harsh yellow card as he lands next to the Mansfield man's foot.
    • 46' Lindon Meikle on the left for Stags, finding Howell at the near post whose strike is deflected just wide!
    • 46' Mansfield in yellow and blue now attacking the goal to our left.

    • - So what do you make of Sturridge in the first half? For me, he should have scored more but he has looked lively - and has linked well with Shelvey. Tweet me @symco_eurosport
    • 45+1' Jamie Carragher concedes a throw in his defensive third - but there is no time for Mansfield to take it as the solitary minute of added time has passed.
    • 45+1' Coates rises to head the ball in just wide of the post.

    • 43' A quiet period towards the end of the half, but Mansfield have the ball.
    • 41' The home fans unhappy as Howell is penalised for a foul on Lucas as Town look to attack.
    • 40' There are kids in the trees... kids in the trees. Wouldn't you be better off watching on telly, lads?

    • 38' Lucas now goes into the book for holding Green as he shields the ball.
    • 38' Wisdom leaps to meet it, but cannot get a header on goal.

    • 36' Green goes too early and the offside flag is up against him.
    • 34' Electric from Sturridge to break down the right and to the byline where Shelvey arrives for the cut-back - excellent defending from Geohaghon to prevent a chance.
    • 33' Green picks up and has plenty of space to rifle at goal from 25 yards out - Jones parries away.

    • 29' Shelvey sent through on the counter, but Exodus Geohaghon does enough to put him off and Marriott makes the save.
    • 28' Sebastian Coates and Matt Green contesting a 50-50 inside the Liverpool box - and the Uruguayan does well to come out with the ball otherwise Green would have been in on goal.
    • 27' Jack Robinson with a give-and-go on the left, felled by home captain Murray.

    • 24' Liverpool counter, with Mansfield keeper Marriott just able to snatch a long ball ahead of Sturridge near the byline.

    • 20' Wisdom has a chance to shoot from close on the right - only to be denied by a great block from Adam Murray.
    • 19' The Stags were relegated from the Football League in 2008 after 77 years.
    • 17' Shelvery's cross is headed away by Lee Beevers. Easy for Liverpool so far.
    • 16' Suso's kick is into the wall and Shelvey's follow-up volley is even worse, well wide of goal.
    • 16' He looked offside from the replays. Free-kick to the Reds 30 yards out on the right.
    • 15' Great save by Marriott! Shelvey again puts Sturridge in behind and the former Chelsea striker 'has too much time' - the keeper makes a superb block. Should have been two.
    • 14' Promising counter for the Stags, but Anthony Howell's attempt to pick out a striker with his through-ball is too strong and Jones is there to claim.

    • 11' Free-kick to Mansfield 30 yards out as Andre Wisdom fouls.

    • 7' Very sticky surface, which will certainly suit Mansfield.
    • 6' First attack from Masfield comes to nothing as Brad Jones comes out quickly to claim.
    • 5' Liverpool keeping the ball with Allen in the corner. Suso turns out of a challenge and sprints into space to fire over the bar from 25 yards. Good effort.

    • 3' Jonjo Shelvey down the left looking to cross, but Mansfield defend.
    • 2' Liverpool keeping the ball early on on a pitch which looks likely to cut up later.
    • 1' Off we go, with Liverpool kicking from right to left in the first half.

I said yes but we hadn’t beaten Lincoln in the second round replay yet. As soon as we did, the first thing the chairman said was, ‘Congratulations’. I said, ‘Thanks, it was a great result’. He said, ‘No, I mean on the marriage’!” Honeymoon incentive for boss
