Murray says Stags need to start taking chances
mansfieldtown.net, 28th December 2015
Stags’ boss Adam Murray wants his side to be more positive in the final third during the remainder of the season after today’s 1-1 draw with York City.
Murray saw his side have to settle for a point against the Minstermen this afternoon after Krystian Pearce’s fine header cancelled out Dave Winfield’s early opener.
And the manager says his side should have won the game in the second half after seeing them carve out a number of opportunities to take the lead in a dominant display.
“If we don’t take our chances, we aren’t going to win football matches. It’s not as if we aren’t creating chances and we aren’t putting people on the back foot, but we need to score goals and that’s the key factor at the minute,” Murray said.

Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray rues missed chances in York City draw
chad.co.uk, by John Lomas, Monday 28 December 2015
Adam Murray reflected on more missed chances that cost his Mansfield Town side two points in today’s thrilling 1-1 home draw with strugglers York City.
The Stags did have to come from behind after a slow start in the first half.
But after the break they twice hit the bar, Matt Green somehow finding it from five yards when it seemed he had to score, while York keeper Scott Flinders was in heartbreaking form.
“It was the story of our last three weeks - frustrating,” said Murray.
“It was a sloppy goal to concede and we caused our own problems with it.

Collins frustrated with York draw
mansfieldtown.net, 28th December 2015
Stags’ centre-half Lee Collins believes this afternoon’s 1-1 draw with York City followed a similar pattern to recent games that they should’ve won in Sky Bet League Two.
Mansfield got themselves back into the game when Krystian Pearce nodded home after Dave Winfield had earlier given the Minstermen the lead. The Stags had more than enough opportunities to claim the three points, but were met by an inspired Scott Flinders between the sticks for York.
And Collins, who partnered Pearce in the centre of defence, took full responsibility for the goal the hosts conceded and says his side should’ve finished the visitors off in the second half, who were grateful to come away with the point in their fight for survival.
“[The game was] same as usual, [we] dominate in large patches of the game but concede daft goals and [we’re] not quite as clinical as we should be.

York City boss Jackie McNamara content with a "good point" at Mansfield
by Dave Flett, yorkpress.co.uk
YORK City boss Jackie McNamara welcomed a “good point” following his team’s 1-1 draw at Sky Bet League Two play-off hopefuls Mansfield.
The Minstermen took a tenth-minute lead at Field Mill following centre-back Dave Winfield’s second goal in as many games.
But home defender Krystian Pearce levelled just past the half-hour mark and Matt Green and Reggie Lambe both hit the bar during a second period in which Scott Flinders also made fine saves from Craig Westcarr and Adi Yussuf.
Delivering his verdict, City chief McNamara said: “We started the game very well with a good goal and their keeper made a good save to prevent Vadaine (Oliver) making it 2-0. They then put a lot of pressure on us from corners and we dealt with that very well until they put in a block on big Dave and their lad got the run on young Will (Boyle) for a free header, even though it seemed to take an eternity to go in.http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/sport/yorkci ...
