    Very even game so far. Let’s see what the second half brings.

    Do we really need five at the back here? Mansfield look absolute garbage. Take Kelly off and put a striker on

    Watching in the end. Both sides nullifying each other. No real chances for either to mean anything. Osadebe had a first good 30 mins, but why Stubbs and to a lesser extent Platt think they are ball playing centre backs is beyond me.

    IF we can start the second half on the front foot and IF we can push a get a goal then we can get a really key win here. The kind of win when everyone else is travelling home says "oh, Bradford won at Mansfield, good win, that"

    Come on Hughes and City ffs. Let's show some intent and get a win.

    Having stopped them from getting a single shot on target, you'd think their confidence will start to drop.

    Getting another forward on after about an hour is probably the right way to go. One of the young lads on loan, maybe even both.

    Not bad, nothing that fluid happening going forward though. Don't think we need a back 5 against these, would take Kelly off for a winger and go 4231 if nothing changes after 10 mins in the 2nd half

    Well I'll take that 1st half. Kept them at arms length. Its there to win if we step it up a notch

    Is that record going to fall apart eventually? It’s broken for sure. One of the better teams in the division with most of our midfield missing and they haven’t had a chance ! Just please stop! A draw will do me considering we have so many out.

    Hughes will be doing everything he can to keep the game at 0-0 so he can tub thump about a fantastic away point against a top league 2 side. It won't happen!

    0-0 may end up looking like a good result, but my god it is dull dull dull.

    I think we look much better without Cook with our forward movement

    I call walker for his lack of an end product, but by Jove if it weren't for him we'd have next to bugger all in midfield in terms of getting a foot on the ball and going forward
