Match ends, Mansfield Town 1, Bristol Rovers 1.
Keiran Murtagh scored an own-goal on his full Mansfield debut to hand Bristol Rovers a point in League Two.
Home goalkeeper Alan Marriott saved from Lee Crown, Ollie Clarke and David Clarkson, who also fired wide, as Rovers dominated early on.
Lee Stevenson headed the Stags ahead against the run of play, as Andy Bond, Clarke, Eliot Richards and Ryan Brunt were all denied an equaliser.
But the hosts' resolve was broken when Murtagh slid in Alefe Santos's cross.
