High-flying Mansfield Town continued their unbeaten streak in League Two after a goalless draw at Harrogate Town.

The Stags – who currently sit in sixth place in League Two – were able to hold off Harrogate Town with a 0-0 draw to stretch their unbeaten streak in the league to nine games.

The fixture saw the visitors as the favourites, as Harrogate sat mid-table whilst Mansfield continue their push for a play-off spot.

The Stags had moments to win the game in the second-half, as striker Jordan Bowery had the best chances.

The second-half saw Mansfield grow into the game, but the deadlock could not be broken.

Mansfield Town manager Nigel Clough said it was a good point after both sides had efforts which could have won the game.

He said: “[It was a] good clean sheet but I thought there was enough situations to win the game.

“All in all, your runs don’t [always mean you’ll] keep winning and winning but it’s important to stay unbeaten [for nine matches].

“[We secured] another clean sheet. We certainly weren’t at our best and it highlighted our need for bringing in a couple of players [on deadline day] to freshen it up when we’re playing Saturday, Tuesday.

“We got away with a couple [of Harrogate chances] at our end. They had a couple of efforts so it was probably a fair result overall.”

The Stags host relegation battling Colchester United in their next game on Tuesday, February 8 at 19:45.
