Murray sees U's draw as fair result
mansfieldtown.net, 19th December 2015

Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray believes today’s draw with Cambridge United was the right result after seeing both sides create chances to take all three points.

The game ended 1-1 after captain Adam Chapman’s fierce free-kick from 35-yards handed the Stags the lead before U’s substitute Ryan Donaldson levelled before half time.

Murray thinks a point apiece was probably the right outcome for both teams in the end, but believes his side’s solidity allowed them the opportunity to almost take all three points late in the game.

“I think it was a fair result in the end,” said Murray.

Chapman aiming for strong festive period after U's point
mansfieldtown.net, 19th December 2015

Stags’ midfielder Adam Chapman believes the fixtures over the Christmas and New Year period could define the club’s season.

Chapman was on the scoresheet for the first time this season in today’s 1-1 draw with Cambridge United, putting the Stags ahead before U’s substitute Ryan Donaldson equalized with a deflected effort.

Although the midfielder admits that the upcoming games don’t make or break a season, it could dictate whether the Stags will be the occupants of a play-off spot – or chasing one in the months to come.

“[It’s] a massive four/five games now. This period doesn’t make or break your season, but it defines your season. In the last two to three months of the season, if you can go and get some good points on the board in these four/five games then [you’re in a good position].

Cambridge United Manager Shaun Derry says he’s pleased his side clinched a point following a tricky tussle with Mansfield Town which ended in a 1-1 draw at the Abbey Stadium.

Ryan Donaldson levelled for the U’s with a left footed strike ten minutes before the break after Adam Chapman had given the Stags the lead, and a good spell ahead of half-time almost saw Cambridge claw themselves into the lead, however the game finished even.

Whilst the U’s boss specified his eagerness to continue the U’s current unbeaten run in Sky Bet League Two, Derry admitted there are some games where teams must settle for a point and move on to the next task.

He said: “We have to respect we were up against an opponent who are high up in the league who had a good game plan, and be pleased with a point from a tough game.

Cambridge boss Shaun Derry told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:

"I'm delighted with the manner in which we've taken got ourselves back in the game.
"I always look for a response and the team gave me that today. We came up against a really good team.
"The best thing for me today is that we got something out of the day."
