Got to be Bish for dealing with that one shot that came at him out of the gloom. Probably didn't see it until it was in his six-yard box!

I'd say the fog. Covered every blade of grass and was ruthless and relentless.

I nominate the coach driver for dropping us off at the Village pub in Nailsworth, then coming back and transporting us up the hill to the stadium.

Did the forecast predict any visibilty issues or was it one of those querks of our weather locally. Being in the sticks with all those cow trumps about would be similar to city smogs before we all went smokeless.

I nominate Macca. He did a scorpion kick to clear it off the line, a rabona to nutmeg Matt and a bit of keepie uppie to take it round 3 of their players. I didn't see any of these because of the fog but he assured me that's what happened when he was walking off

There was no fog forecast. And when you got down from the hill into Nailsworth, there was no fog there. And it's glorious this morning.

Disappointing though IMO should never have kicked off as there was no way the fog was ever going to clear for some time. Being called off was better than possibly losing in what would have been a lottery. SSA bus driver did a sterling job and could do nothing about the A42 being closed and having to detour to the A38 and then having to come off at Ripley and go through Swanwick due to an accident that closed the road. All in all very frustrating so roll on Barrow on Saturday. COYS!

It was the correct decision to kick off in my opinion, with everybody there. The fog had eased enough at that point, but then immediately worsened again. Nothing anyone could do, just one of those things.

Why can’t matches like this not be played the next day? Weather permitting of course. Seems a shame to keep going back and forth!!!

It definitely briefly improved during the initial 10 minute delay, but then got worse as quickly as it got better.

Unrealistic I think to expect Stags fans to come back on the coach about 12 hours after getting back home.

Rubbish performance. We struggled to pick out a pass and there was a complete lack of vision.

I gave my man of the match to Jordan Bowery. Never saw him touch the ball, but I don’t think we should discriminate against those we saw and those we didn’t see. Well done Jordan.

Match officials, stewards, fans, local suppliers etc all need time to rearrange their travel, work etc. very, very unrealistic and impractical to play the following day.
