Paul Cox admitted using reverse psychology at half-time and was also happy his switch to 4-4-2 paid off with three sterling substitutions, but the Stags boss still refused to take the credit for tonight’s memorable 4-2 win at in-form Hartlepool United.

In a sensational game Stags led 1-0, the home side levelled and missed a penalty before going 2-1 up soon after the break, only to see Cox’s changes revitalise the visitors and storm to what could be one of the most important wins in the club’s history.

“That was probably the most enjoyable result of the season when you looks at how far we have to travel tonight and Hartlepool’s recent home record, which could be said to be frightening,” said Cox.
