Mansfield vs Lincoln City: Struggling Imps hold Stags

Lincoln remain in the Blue Square Bet Premier relegation zone after playing out a goalless draw with Mansfield.

The Imps headed into the match having lost three of their last four encounters, while the Stags were winless in three.

Such form struggles were often apparent during a drab encounter that Lincoln striker Jamie Taylor almost illuminated in spectacular fashion when he slammed a 35-yard drive against the crossbar after 31 minutes.

City goalkeeper Paul Farman did well to tip over Matt Rhead's header from Adam Murray's free-kick early in the second half.

Peter Gilbert might have given the visitors the win with a dangerous header from Nicky Nicolau's corner midway through the second period before both sides apparently settled for their lot.

Lincoln are fourth bottom on 13 points, two from safety and five behind their hosts.

    Mansfield want to be grateful we didn't send the youth team last night - they would have had a spanking then!

    You can't take someone to court for voicing ones opinion! or has someone divulged some sensitive information, or made a libelous comment on here?

    Oldlinconia, no one dare voice a negative opinion on here now due to the fear of being taken to court by Mr Dorrian as he is now to be known. Hopefully I have not written anything on this post Sir Bob of failing Lincoln.

    All Nottingham Football clubs will never learn - Continuity brings success and a little luck - please be patient Stags fans, I sure the manager will get it right!!

    That's more like it, play ugly if need be. Get in the oppositions face. The longer they don't score the greater the chance you will. All you need is a chance, half a chance, a mistake, a fluke or someone to do something spectacular. Good luck in Wales. Keep the faith.

    Steady progress, that no doubt adds to the withdrawal symptoms of negative numpties looking forward to their annual Sack The Manager Party.
