Bath City 1-1 Mansfield

Bath City are now five points adrift at the bottom of the Blue Square Bet Premier after drawing with Mansfield.

Marley Watkins opened the scoring for the home side, firing past Mansfield goalkeeper Alan Marriott from 12 yards.

But the Stags were soon level, with Lindon Meikle scoring his third goal of the season with a stunning effort from just outside the penalty area.

And the visitors could have won the game late on, but Matt Green missed the target from six yards out.


Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"We had two one-on-one chances. Goals change games and we've been saying this for a number of games this season.

"If you look at the games this season where we drew, we had chances to win the games.

"We have become a little bit erratic in the last 10 or 15 minutes of games."
