There’s no such thing as an easy game, no one should ever be under the impression that’s the case.

However, I’d be a liar if I didn’t say that I thought the weekend game wasn’t one that had represented a great chance for us to get back to winning ways so I’m a little disappointed.

Unfortunately AFC Wimbledon weren’t able to inflict what would have been a club record seventh straight defeat on Mansfield, with the sides playing out a 0-0 draw.

The Dons had the chances in the first half, and we should have taken at least one. On the other hand though Ross Worner had to pull off a couple of fine second half saves to keep the visitors at bay….

When we play at Kingsmeadow we always want to win, as players, fans and of course the manager too. Neal Ardley admitted as much but at the same time didn’t view it as lost points, it was a point won in his eyes.

Ardley told BBC London 94.9: ‘You always want to win your home games and I felt we could at half-time but credit to them and they played the conditions better in the second half.

‘They knew they were bigger and stronger as we had a makeshift defence but we stayed strong and so it’s a good point for us.

‘There was a nervousness about us and I told them to be brave, I said we won’t be angry if they made mistakes, but then it became a game where we had to dig in.’

I say I was “disappointed” but I would have been more so had we got nothing at all from a side that are really struggling at the moment and would have been gutted has we become the first team they’d beaten since the end of September!
