“I am pleased to get the point but we feel we could have got the win – but didn't.

“We have had some good battles with Mansfield and they are a string side at this level. They have only lost two at home all season and I thought we acquitted ourselves quite well.”

On Hoskins' spectacular leveller, he added: “It was an almost Paolo Di Canio-esque finish. To control that like he does at the back stick it was a wonderful finish. To be so controlled on the volley like that and pick his pot – the keeper didn't move.

“The temperament in the squad is good and nothing fazes them.

“We have belief in the way we play and what we do and the players in the squad can deliver key moments like that.”
