Mansfield 1-1 York

Mansfield Town recorded their 11th draw of the season as they were held at home by York City.

A defensive error gifted the Stags the lead when David McGurk left his backpass short and Matt Green nipped in to round goalkeeper Michael Ingham.

Green blasted wide just after the break and Lindon Meikle forced a smart save from Ingham.

The Minstermen levelled when Lanre Oyebanjo's mis-hit shot fell to Liam Henderson who finished well.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox tells BBC Radio Nottingham:

Stags need wins not draws - Cox

"I think it was a fair result. Once again it was another fine line between us winning.

"We were 1-0 up and I thought we controlled the first half. In the second half we've had two great chances to increase our lead.

"But we've not done that and left ourselves open and conceded a goal out of nothing. We have to look at that as being two points dropped."

York City manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio York:

We could have won it - Mills

"We've shown a lot of heart to come back today. We've given away another goal early on and we've had to come back and we've done that.

"In the second half we were on the front foot a lot more and showed a little bit more of what we're about. With a bit more belief and composure in front of goal, we would've won and I think we should have won.

"We know what can happen at Mansfield, it happened to York last year. You go a goal down and go on your back foot and don't believe in yourselves. But my squad have shown we've got something there."
