Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray believes his side are on the path to success after yesterday 2-1 win at York City.

A Matt Green doubled help Stags overturn an early deficit to secure all three points and move to eighth in the tabl

Focused Murray has previously spoken of his belief that Stags can clinch a play-off place this campaign.

And Stags looked every bit play-off contenders as they sealed their second away win in three games.

Murray said: “My aim this season is to make sure our fans never go through what they went through last season. My team wants success and we are hungry.

“We can still be more clinical in the final third from other people, we are getting into great areas. When the building blocks keep coming like they are, when we reach 1oo per cent full throttle, we are going to be a team in this league.

“York are tough team to play against and set up like we did a few years ago, but we have to defend and grind out points if we have to.

“We defended well and showed a lot of energy, this is a building block for us to climb up the table.

“We showed we can play today. The movement and speed of our play was excellent at times, what we need to do now is carry it on for 90 mins.

“We spoke all week about how their strengths were set pieces, so to concede one that early was disappointing.

“But the character shown by the lads after that was super, we got on the front foot from then.

“We work hard on our organisation, as a player I know working on that stuff day can be a bit tiring working on it day in and day out, but when you know it inside out as a unit, you can be tough to breakdown. We showed that today.”

“Overall, it showed a complete performance and that we can do all sides of the cylinder. It’s a massive three points.”

Delighted Murray was also full of praise for striker Matt Green, who got over last week’s penalty miss to earn is side all the points.

“I heard a comment in the week that Greeny is not the same, which made me laugh. I’ve never heard anything like it,” added Murray.

“Whether it would have taken eight or nine games to get off the mark,Greeny scores goals.

“His work ethic is superb. The guy is a monster and his second goal was great play.”
