Mansfield Town fans are going to be seeing a lot more of colourful new manager Steve Evans after it was revealed he would be having the dug-outs moved from the far side in front of the main Ian Greaves Stand.

A very animated figure at every club he has been at, fans have often watched his touchline antics as much as the actual play as the facial expressions on this video of his time at Crawley Town shows - click HERE to see.

A club statement said: The club is expected to move the dugouts to beneath the Ian Greaves Stand in time for Saturday’s game at home to Crawley.

“New manager Steve Evans yesterday revealed his desire to be closer to the Stags’ fans on home matchdays and requested that the dugouts be moved.”

With only coming into the club on Thursday, Chad asked Evans if he would be taking a seat in the stand for his opening game against his former club Crawley on Saturday to get a bigger picture of his new charges.

But he replied he would be in the dug-out immediately.

“I will be my usual self,” he smiled. “I can’t be what I am not going to be.

“The supporters will quickly realise at the One Call Stadium that I am very passionate and career-driven and it will be no different whether I am here, Leeds or Crawley.

“This is a very passionate management team the fans have got and we ask them to show their passion, get right behind the players and let’s see if we can start with a win and not get carried away, get three points in the bag and look forward to the Tuesday.”
