New-look Mansfield Town took a major step forward with a superb display and a vital point from today’s battling 0-0 home draw with League Two leaders Wycombe Wanderers.
The Stags again created a wealth of chances only to see the post deny them twice in five minutes, keeper Michael Ingram pull off two superb first half stoppage time saves, and the Chairboys make block after block in front of their goal.
Few gave struggling Stags a prayer against a Wycombe side that arrived nine League games unbeaten.
But the visitors know they were lucky to leave with a point from a game in which Stags had to be more gritty then pretty on a soaking wet surface that had the match in doubt overnight.
However, Wycombe sub Mat McClure almost stole a win right at the end in stoppage time which would have been unjust
Thankfully he put what was the visitors’ only real opportunity in the game straight into the hands of keeper Adam Smith.
