Stags boss Paul Cox slammed his ‘lacklustre’ players for gifting Tranmere Rovers a first half two-goal lead and lacking ‘desire, hunger and application’ as they crashed out of the Capital One Cup 2-0 at Prenton Park tonight.

“I know people will think I am being a bit harsh as we were away to a good League One club, but I am not happy losing two football matches on the trot and some players need to quickly wake up and join the party,” he said.

“We can’t keep giving teams a two-goal lead before we start. We are not going to win many matches if we defend like that.
