Mansfield 0-0 Grays

Stuart Robinson saved a Rob Duffy penalty to earn struggling Grays Athletic a point against promotion contenders Mansfield Town.

The home side had the better of a physical first half in which four Grays players received yellow cards.

Duffy should have put the Stags ahead 10 minutes after the break but his spot kick was saved by Robinson.

Oliver Hotchkiss and Lee Morris had shots on target before the end but both were denied by the Grays keeper.


Grays manager Julian Dicks told BBC Essex:

"Our goalkeeper was absolutely magnificent in the second, it could have been five or six.

"We had quite a lot of luck today.

"The second half was a bit of an onslaught, but the boys defended well, dug-in and got a result."
