Manager Paul Cox has said he was delighted with a good point but also disappointed that we couldn’t make the most of the chances we created to have taken the win in our one all draw with York City on Saturday.

Mansfield came from behind in the game, but Cox told the Official Site that he felt it was a very well deserved point for our efforts, and it could’ve and probably should’ve been all three.

‘In the second half I thought we were excellent. We were camped in York’s half and had numerous chances to score, but things are tough at the minute. It’s tough when you come into a game and on the morning of the game you lose another centre half. We had to rejig and it was an hour before kick off that we decided that we’d go with 442 due to available personnel, so a massive amount of credit needs to be given to the boys, because I thought they were excellent.’

Cox goes on to say that half time the message from everybody was be positive and he thought that switching around Rakish Bingham and Daniel Carr really worked for us as Rakish then started to find a lot more space and with Rob Taylor putting his foot on the ball and starting to dictate things more he knows we looked a real threat going forward.

The gaffer also said that special praise had to be given to on loan striker Vadaine Oliver who only joined us ahead of the game for his showing because he led the line excellently and gave everything, meaning he was only substituted because he went down with cramp.
