Mansfield had to settle for a point on Saturday afternoon, although given the amount of chances that Cambridge United had I don’t think too many will be that unhappy with this?

In the second half alone, and all the chances to the same player, Cambridge could have scored at least three times but somehow we managed to earn a 0-0 draw at the One Call Stadium.

A few hearts were in mouths early on when Jamie Sendles-White, making his home debut for Mansfield having signed on loan from Queens Park Rangers, found himself lucky to escape with only a yellow card when he dived in on Richard Tait. This resulted in a melee before a yellow card was awarded.

Cambridge almost broke through just before half time but Fergus Bell was on hand to clear a Michael Nelson header off the line, from the follow up Ryan Donaldson crossed into Liam Hughes who saw his effort shave the outside of the post.

Sascha Studer was the man we had to thank though as it was his saves that earned us the point.

Twice inside five-minutes to saved to deny Cambridge’s Crystal Palace loanee Kwesi Appiah goals. Firstly saving well from his effort on the turn and then turning another effort against the post. Between these effort Appiah couldn’t find the power with a head to beat the ‘keeper.

Another Hughes effort late in the game forced Studer into another save, which he made to make sure we kept a cleansheet, against a side that had managed eight-goals in their last two games, and also collected a point.
