The result secured Bury’s promotion and left Stags only needing one point at MK Dons this Saturday to join them and the Mansfield manager smiled: “We all became Bury fans on Tuesday night. I put my Bury head back on and wanted them to do well.

“Every credit to Ryan Lowe and his squad for getting over the line at the end of a season in difficult circumstances off the field.

“I am delighted for Danny Mayor to get the goal that took them up in the end. He has been a stand-out player this season.

“Also, Nicky Adams – a serial promotion winner – Neil Danns and some of the other staff that are still there.

“It’s now down to us and about us having to go to MK with a game plan and making it successful.

“You can’t hide from it – it’s impossible. It’s a huge game with huge significance.”
