Stags Boss Urges Side To Up The Ante Ahead Of Newport Clash

Stags Boss Urges Side To Up The Ante Ahead Of Newport Clash

Mansfield Town boss Steve Evans has urged his side to “up the ante” ahead of Saturday’s clash with Newport County, as the Stags look to get back on track and regain their place in the league two play-offs.

A combination of the Stags 3-0 loss at Grimsby at the weekend and Colchester’s 1-0 victory over Wycombe in midweek, has dropped the Stags to eighth – a place outside of the play-offs, on goal difference.

On Saturday Evans’ men face the leagues bottom side in Newport County but the Stags manager insists playing sides in trouble, is a tougher prospect than facing those around the play-offs

“I’ve always maintained, and I said it in the week when I met the fans, which was a fantastic evening, that we have two or three games against teams who are not involved at the top end, they’re always the most difficult to win"

“The games against the top sides always take care of themselves, that always comes down to quality and we think we’ve got a lot of that.  We can only focus one at a time; let’s deal with Saturday, we then have a massive week ahead of us – with two long trips down to Yeovil and Cheltenham.”
