Hopefully we can grind out a victory here and keep the momentum going.

2-1 Mansfield.

Suppose a clean sheet is out of the question nowadays. Would be very disappointed if we lost though. 2-1 Stags

Cheated by an offside goal apparently. What is it with these refs and their ability to ref a match?

It certainly looked offside from where I was sitting, but the lino had a good view. It'll be interesting to see the highlights.

We were poor, Mansfield poorer. Usually those sorts of decisions go against us. Up the table we go.

What was your opinion on our disallowed goal?

By the looks of it we couldn't get going on your joke of a pitch.

Taff was a yard offside - not even close.

Another good win which we just about edged. 2 more wins should be enough to stay up. Green was lucky not to get a red today.

Both teams had to cope with pitch - we coped better. Green was lucky to stay on the pitch. He should have been booked in the first 5 minutes. He seems to have lost his pace.

I'm feeling more confident about staying up. We've still got a very tough March.

You got something against Green? He had one of the best chances of the match by hitting the post and has shown all season that he hasn't lost his pace.

We certainly don't seem to be getting the key decisions this season. Another goes against us.

Nothing against Green but he should've been sent off. Clear yellow card to stop our keeper getting the ball away early doors, late challenge on Jones and ref missed a blatant elbow too. Plus he got carded. Lucky boy.

Our goal looked offside from my seat but wasn't in line.

The 40 tons of sand they put on the pitch must have slowed him down today.

Having seen the Sky highlights I think that Boden could well have been onside. He peeled away from his marker(s) as the pass came in to him so to give him credit, he was at least in line with the defenders as the ball was passed to him. Like everyone else I only spotted where he was when he received the ball and that was ahead of the defenders. Key thing for me was the linesman was in the perfect position and didn't flag for offside. Not that I care ... a goal is a goal and a win is a win.

... just seen Channel 5 highlights and the ball in was deflected by a Mansfield player.

Just watching the highlights on 5, something needs to seriously be done about that pitch.

The FL need to enforce the rules about pitch standards imo. Professional football shouldn't be played on surfaces like that.
