Mansfield Town 0-0 Kettering Town --- BSP

After a first 45 minutes of decent football, we were hoping that the second 45 would be as good - unfortunately both teams cancelled each other out and the game ended goal-less. Mansfield were denied a chance of taking all three points after the myopic Referee missed a stone-wall penalty after Gary Silk was upended in added time.

We were somewhat amused by Stags Manager David Holdsworth views on the game on Radio Nottingham. He thought the Stags played with flair (?), Rob Duffy won all his headers (?) and Lewis Briscoe was great at breaking on the counter (?)..... which Field Mill did we go to? Not the same one Mr. Holdsworth did, obviously.

Basically, the Stags offered little. Kettering were solid at the back, with giant Exodus Geohaghon mopping up everything alongside Guy Branston. ..

Not been to many 0-0 this season, but I suppose we have to take them in our stride and hope that the next game is a little better...
