Exeter's promotion hopes suffered another blow as they were held to a 0-0 draw by struggling Mansfield in a dire contest at St James Park.

Mansfield started well with George Lapslie hooking a shot over his shoulder and narrowly wide of goal, but it was a game severely lacking in quality.

Tyrese Sinclair did have the ball in the net for Mansfield, on the half hour mark, but it was ruled out for a foul, while Exeter's first attempt came on 31 minutes when Lewis Page skied high from distance.

Stephen McLaughlin forced Exeter goalkeeper Jokull Andresson into a good save with his feet, but it was Exeter's Jack Sparkes that came closest to a goal when his header was brilliantly saved by Aidan Stone on the stroke of half-time.

The second half started in the same way with chances few and far between. Jordan Bowery headed well wide for Mansfield, while Sinclair was denied by Andresson.
