Late Lee Holmes goal earns Exeter a point against Mansfield

A late Lee Holmes strike saw Exeter grab a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Mansfield.

Stags looked like they would get all three points after Kane Hemmings put them ahead after 18 minutes in a game they bossed from start to finish.

But they paid the price for blowing second half chances when Holmes levelled with four minutes left.

Hemmings fired Mansfield ahead with a clinical first-time finish to end a superb counter attack.

Jacob Mellis was denied a deserved goal after Dean Moxey diverted his goal-bound effort over the bar on 58 minutes.

Christy Pym parried from Hemmings on 61 minutes, before he beat away a long-range Danny Rose effort on 67 minutes.

Pym had to tip over his bar after Logan nearly scored from all of 75 yards.

His save proved to be vital when Exeter rescued an unlikely point when Holmes scored after Logan had saved initially from Liam McAlinden.

Kane Wilson was sent off for the visitors in stoppage time after picking up a second yellow card.
