"There was a blatant push (on Danny Rowe) and foul for their goal. And I disagree with the decision for the free kick that led to the goal. But unless referees get professional in Leagues One and Two, Leagues One and Two will not have a true reflection of every game."
“That is no slight on anyone. Just please get them professional because we are all professionals. That is my honest opinion. Our fans have spent a lot of money to come up here today and so I am pleased we got something out of the game for them today. We could have come away with nothing. But I am gutted for them and the players that it was not a win.”
“I am so proud of the players. We played all of the good stuff in the first half and a lot of it in the second half.
“[Mansfield] were very route one. They went very big and long into us. I don’t think I have played against a taller team in my career.
They had some big lads out there. We did fantastic, scored a super goal and created good chances."
“There was a bit of a panic at the end and we couldn’t get out of our own half. There was free kick after free kick coming back at us. But we ground out a result and that is fantastic. I am really pleased for the boys and the fans.”
