Ryan Donaldson has scored twice in 21 appearances for Cambridge United this season

Ryan Donaldson secured a point for Cambridge United after they had fallen behind at home to Mansfield.

The visitors took an early lead when Adam Chapman's free-kick from distance caught out keeper Sam Beasant.

Luke Berry's effort for Cambridge was ruled out for offside, but Donaldson's deflected shot from the edge of the box gave them the equaliser.

Brian Jensen foiled Cambridge's Ben Williamson and Beasant denied Krystian Pearce late on at the other end.

Cambridge boss Shaun Derry told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:

"I'm delighted with the manner in which we've taken got ourselves back in the game.

"I always look for a response and the team gave me that today. We came up against a really good team.

"The best thing for me today is that we got something out of the day."
