MORECAMBE boss Derek Adams said his side created enough chances against Mansfield to win two games.

A late goal from Alex Kenyon gave the Shrimps a draw that took them five points clear of bottom club Stevenage with Adams happy with the way his side once again came from behind after Joe Riley gave the Stags the lead on the hour.

Adams said: “For three-quarters of the game, I thought we were the better side. The way we cut the ball back and the way we made their keeper make three or four magnificent saves has enabled them to get the point.

“We had enough chances to win not only one but probably two football matches.

“First half, I thought we controlled large spells and created chances but we didn’t take them. We got into really good areas in that 18-yard box and didn’t find that killer touch.

“Second half, for the first bit, Mansfield had the better of that, but then, with 15 or 20 minutes to go, we had the next bit.

“They got the goal, really, out of nothing; we couldn’t really see them breaking us down. We had control of the game and they got that goal.

“We didn’t play well in the second half. I thought that we didn’t pass the ball as quickly as we did in the first half, we didn’t create as many opportunities.

“But we changed formation and we finished the game on top. We’ve had four very good chances to win the match and their keeper has made some magnificent saves.”
