The new Mansfield Town boss is hoping for a good turn out for his first game in charge against Northampton Town and said: “I have to say I never enjoyed coming here as a player and that's what we probably need to get back to.

“I have been here as a player and an assistant manager.

“It is never an easy place to come. It's a tough place. That's down to the fans. They make it a tough place. They make it a hostile place.
