Experienced Stags defender Lee Beevers is confident that, with players back from injury, Stags don’t need to change much to get back to winning ways.

Ahead of tomorrow’s trip to bang-in-form Shrewsbury Town, he said: “If we keep doing what we are doing it will drop for us and we can get on a bit of a run.

“Big games like this are something we always relish as a club.

“Shrewsbury have had a fantastic start to the season and it’s going to be a hard place to go and get anything. I’ve played there a few times and it’s a tough place to go.

“But we are getting a few players back and, with no game last weekend, we have managed to rest a few people with injuries.

“We started the season a bit indifferently. We then got a bit of consistency as we drew a few but we now need to turn them into wins.”

After tomorrow, Stags will quickly focus on Tuesday’s FA Cup first round visit of Conference South Concord Rangers, which was washed out last weekend.

“Concord will be looking at the other results already in the cup and hope they can come here and do the same,” said Beevers. “We have just got to be professional and do what we can do.

“The postponement wasn’t good, especially when everyone had travelled. But I did have a look at the pitch and it wasn’t in a good way.

“We did get in a bit of training on the Astroturf, but that was starting to get a bit flooded too.”

Stags this week extended the loan spell of QPR’s Jamie Sendles-White, who has impressed so far. Beevers said the player will learn so much from regular League Two football.

“There is nothing like first team football and you learn so much more in the first team than in the reserves or development league games,” he said. “Every game there is something riding on it and, lower down, you have people fighting for their livelihoods.”
