'Quality strike' earns Mansfield Town point at Tranmere... but Nigel Clough thinks it could have been three
Manager praises ‘intelligent’ midfielder...
Nigel Clough was delighted with Stephen Quinn's 'quality strike' which earned Mansfield Town a point at Tranmere Rovers... but felt his side could have had more.
The experienced midfielder's impressive volley saw the Stags fight back to secure a point at Prenton Park.
"It takes a very good strike and a quality strike to get us that goal," Clough told iFollow Stags."He was as good as anyone on the pitch today, Stephen Quinn.
"He can't run around like he did a few years ago but his intelligence and desire stands out a mile.
"We're delighted it dropped to him."
Kaiyne Woolery had put Rovers ahead seconds before the break in an open contest.
"I thought we had a good opportunity to get all three (points) today so a bit disappointed," Clough reflected.
"Pleased with a point in terms that we've come to a team challenging for automatic (promotion) and you're 1-0 down. To come back and get a 1-1 is, in some ways, a good point.
"I thought in the first 10-15 minutes today you could tell there'd be opportunities. It was an open game and I'm not quite sure how it's finished 1-1. It could have been 3-3."
