POST-match talk at Kenilworth Road tonight was whether Matt Green’s late effort had crossed the line in Stags’ excellent 0-0 draw with Luton Town.

Green was convinced the ball was over before George Pilkington hooked clear and manager paul Cox said afterwards: “We heard behind the dug-outs that the live TV showed it had gone over the line.

“Sometimes they go for you, sometimes they don’t.

“But I have to be delighted with a point as they are the in-form team and this is a tough place to come with a partisan crowd. Not many teams come away from here with a point.

“It was a game of two halves. Luton were the better side in the first half but I thought we bossed it second half and got stronger as the game went on.

“I think we showed more ambition to win it at the end. The lads have put a real shift in tonight.

“If we can now go away to Ebbsfleet on Saturday and win it will have been a very good week for us.”
