    Which ones? Surely not the blatant dive by their lad on the corner of the box? That should have been a second yellow and him off!

    But I enjoyed passages of the game. Honestly we we looked like we wanted to score rather than passing it backwards.

    Haven’t been following the match today but saw the same players missing and gave us no chance so it wasnt just a good point it was an excellent point against a very good team

    Reasonable, yes, a point is rarely a bad result but we've not progressed from last season in that our defenders are finally getting to grips with the formation and we're pretty solid again - as we were last season - and we're still pretty toothless up front - like last season.

    We're back in the same position as last season where a point today is a good point if we win our next match. We need to win to catch up with those who are already moving away from us.

    Mansfield will lose some home games this season so why couldn't we have been the first to win there today?

    Fully agree. A point is always welcome but any team in this division is there for the taking every Saturday, no matter how much some of our fans think battling for a point should be a tactic. Had Cook started today it would have been yet another 90 minutes of him feeding off scraps yet again. There was some pretty passing for large spells but ultimately it was all safety first. 4 goals in 6 games and a general lack of creativity needs to be addressed.

    Draw away win at home.
    50 percent and that isn't guaranteed.
    Need to get wins on the board away from home.

    The stats' say we made Pym save twice and Mansfield made Lewis save the once nothing else to discuss it really is that simple, both sides showed little attacking flare, I can assure you it was 1,000% better than what we had to put up with at Morecambe.

    Lewis pulled off a decent enough save and Akins had the effort across the face of goal, after that I can't remember any clear cut chances created by either side

    Funnily enough I think that's the best I've seen this season, albeit the standard is on the floor from the first five games. Don't get me wrong, we're not good by any stretch but we actually looked like a group of footballers who could pass the ball to each other today.

    To state the obvious, our goalscoring record is pathetic and unless Cook manages to get back to where he was last year, we've no chance of anything better than mid table.

    I'm happy.. bronco. I see the game very differently... I'll call the game or players out I'll do just that. If the game was shit I'll say so.

    That is much to do with the management of course.. and needs calling out. I'll never buy into its Mansfield.. and hard fought point mentally.. it's BS.

    You lot forgot to clap harder

    Okay please make me one season when 92 points hasn’t got a team promoted from league 2. You said 33% as well not 50 and I’ve no idea where that came from. I guarantee any fan would take 92 points pre season, sorry but that’s nonsense.

    They didn't sound like a very good team and had two of their stronger players missing.

    With a bit of tweaking we could have won. In the second half we tailed off badly and let the pressure come on to us. The one positive is that the defenders seem to be getting to grips with the formation and we're starting to seem solid again at the back.

    Odour was supposed to be our left wing back / left back , he played in the championship for Barnsley in those positions.
