Wright hoping for run in Stags’ side

Have your say

NICK Wright has bags of potential according to Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox, writes Jake Brown.

So with his first goal for the Stags coming on Tuesday night at lowly Nuneaton, the young striker will be looking to impress more and more as the Stags aim to make that eagerly awaited push up the Conference table.

The former Kidderminster front man will undoubtedly want to kick on from bagging his first goal, saying, “It was definitely worth the wait.

“I could have possibly got another one moments before, but I just want to make the most of my chance in the team.”

So getting more and more minutes under his belt will now be on his mind as the club heads towards the busy festive period.

In a league that notably gets tougher each year, a point away from home can’t be grumbled at too loudly from Tuesday night.

With competition for places up for grabs the manager said he is keen to pick on merit rather than ego, so Wright will hope to start again on Saturday against Southport, although is taking a laid back approach stating: “I’d be happy to start or just to get on the pitch at any point and make my mark.”

Momentum is now what Cox’s side will look to create at the weekend, starting where they left off with Tuesday night’s performance.

Wright added: “The lads have talked and the spirit is high, we need to find that consistency with our play, and sometimes it can be better to be chasing the pack rather than be chased.”
